Post-divorce can be a time to discover a new you. Everything is an opportunity if you see it so. It’s a time to take your energy and become what you want.
Many divorces are painful, tense, and emotionally taxing… but they don’t have to be! Keep your head up and make steps towards a better and more confident YOU.
Here are 3 simple tips towards a healthy post-divorce life.
Burn off any frustration and stress with exercise. Not only will it feel good– you’ll look good! What better way to end a relationship, than to physically be better from it? Harness your energy into something positive.
2. Get Healthy
Start a healthy diet. Food very much affects mood– especially for emotional eaters. The more pizza and wine consumed may fulfill you in the short term, but will bring you down quickly after. Foods that boost mood are: blueberries, avocado, nuts, beans and lentils, and dark chocolate. Eat to your delight.
3. Try Something New
Restart your social life. Try something new and surprise yourself. Whether going salsa dancing, to an art class, or joining a sports team… do something that challenges yourself and opens you to new ideas. Get a fresh look at life.
4. Yoga & Meditation
Practice yoga or meditation every morning. Both exercises are proven to help lower stress, enhance creativity and productivity. If you want to let go of old feelings, this is a great place to start– within yourself.
5. Practice Gratitude
There is always something to be thankful for each and every day. It could be as simple as being thankful for a sunny day. Practicing daily gratitude will improve your outlook on life no matter the situation.
Become your best, newly single self and enjoy this opportunity to restart. As crazy and frustrating as it might feel while going through the divorce, there is always a silver lining. Stay focused and work towards a better tomorrow– it’s out there waiting.
