Tips for Emotional Divorce Support & Boosting Mood

Despite your best efforts and marriage counseling sessions, sometimes relationships end in divorce. This can take a massive toll on an individuals well-being and mental health, not to mention their mood and confidence.

Here are a few tips and reminders for self-care during this difficult time:

1. Do Not Think of Divorce as Failure

It’s easy to get caught up into thinking of divorce as a “failure”. Although your marriage ended, you did not fail. You came to a decision that is the best possible outcome for the situation. You are transitioning into a new phase of your life and have many new doors to open.

2. Grieve What You’ve Lost

Take the time you need to grieve the loss of your partnership – there were good and bad times that you may reflect on and grieve. Allow yourself to let go of these thoughts and free yourself to make room for new opportunities in your life.

3. Get Moving!

Physical activity is a great way to boost your mood. If you were previously in a bit of a physical rut or had a few pounds to lose, this is the perfect way to get your endorphins going and improve your self-confidence at the same time. Join a gym, take up jogging, or try out a yoga class – maybe you’ll even make some new friends. Tip: set a fitness related goal for yourself to accomplish for an extra mood boost!

4. Find Support

It can be difficult to navigate the feelings and emotions that come up throughout divorce. Individual therapy sessions can provide a great outlet for discussing and working through any issues so you can let go of them. An experience psychiatrist will be able to understand and provide feedback to help you move on with your life happily.
