Why Prioritizing Self-Care During Divorce Is Important

Posted on in Divorce / Family Law

IL divorce lawyerWhen you were growing up, did a trusted adult in your life ever tell you that you needed to eat breakfast to have enough energy to get through the day, even if you were too tired to eat? As adults, there is not always someone around to remind us of what we need. Yet, the basic sentiment of that long-held wisdom still applies. If you do not take the time to invest in the basic care of your body – in addition to that of your mind and overall well-being – you will not have the energy that you need to make it through the day. This is particularly true when you are navigating particularly trying periods of life, including the consequential transition that is the divorce process.

Clear Eyes, Full Heart…

Whether you are feeling numb, devastated, enraged, inspired, overjoyed, or any emotion in between, chances are that your heart is feeling very full as you process that your marriage is at an end. Emotions – for all their benefits – tend to impair one’s ability to make clear-headed decisions focused on future interests. They are far more likely to inspire choices fed by the heat, ice, or fog of the present moment.

How Self-Care Can Help

By engaging in self-care during the divorce process, you will place yourself in the strongest possible position to do the following:

  • Make thoughtful decisions
  • Concentrate on any challenges that cross your path
  • Manage your time thoughtfully
  • Focus when your emotions threaten to overwhelm you
  • Evaluate opportunities
  • Navigate your legal case in ways you can be proud of
  • Prioritize in ways that serve your future interests

If you neglect your need for self-care, you could end up making decisions that negatively impact your divorce case and your ability to move forward in healthy ways.
