ReStart: Care for Divorced and Separated

Divorce and separation are painful periods in most people’s lives because they were not part of the plan when they married. This can be a time of both grief and pain. This is a time to look after yourself if you are going to ensure that your other responsibilities (children, job and/or family) do not suffer. For yourself and others in your life you care about, it is a time to work on being healthy and happy.

A few things to consider:

  • Attend support groups (see below)
  • Seek the help of a professional counselor as you transition into this new phase of your life.
  • Get enough sleep every day.
  • Eat healthy foods.
  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Exercise a few times a week.
  • Do not dwell on what you could have done or should have done.
  • Think carefully before dating again. You need time to heal.
  • Listen to soothing music to calm yourself, even at bedtime.
  • Pray daily for strength to get through this difficult time.
  • Ask for help from friends and loved ones.
