How can you maintain an optimistic attitude during divorce?

If you are currently going through a divorce in Michigan, chances are you have already been faced with many challenging decisions regarding your future. Some of the choices you may have already been trying to negotiate may include child support and custody, property division and alimony. Part of your ability to make confident decisions and play an active role in facilitating the process is your ability to remain positive and optimistic despite the significant changes you are coping with. 

According to the Huffington Post, there are several simple things you can do to keep a good attitude and give yourself a winning chance at rebuilding your life in a way that is healthy, exciting and successful. Here are some of the things you can do:

  • Take care of yourself: Find time each day to exercise. Make healthy choices about what you choose to eat, and do not skip meals to make room for other things. Set aside time to meditate and sit in the quiet. Maintain good hygiene and exude confidence when you are meeting new people. 
  • Accept support: If people offer you support, do not be afraid to take it. Additionally, you may consider joining a support group where you can hear the stories of other people and receive strength and helpful advice. 
  • Be emotional: While some emotions may be difficult to face and process, it is critical that you take time to feel your emotions and grieve. There will undoubtedly be moments when you feel sad, guilty or maybe even filled with regret. Allow yourself to feel this way, but then remind yourself that your condition is temporary and has the potential to get a whole lot better. 
  • Have fun: Fill your life with purposeful things. Enjoy participating in things you are passionate about.
