If you are going through a divorce, it is important to take good care of yourself. If you allow yourself to get sick and depressed, you are not going to be able to think clearly and make good decisions for yourself. So, think about the basics that you already know…get plenty of sleep, exercise, eat healthy, be with friends and a support system, and think positive thoughts. It is also a good idea to reduce your alcohol consumption since that can lead to even more problems. Yes, divorce is stressful but help yourself by taking good care of yourself, so you can be empowered and be a good parent if you have children.
