Reduce Stress and Emotional Strain During Divorce

Often, the most common negative consequences of divorce include legal battles, loss of financial support and instability for children. However, what about the consuming stress and emotional strain experienced along the way? Fortunately, there are steps that divorcing Colorado couples can take in an effort to make separation as amicable as possible without causing unnecessary, and potentially debilitating anxiety.

The American Psychological Association says a healthy breakup is possible. They suggest the following tips to keep separation proceedings cordial and calm:

  • In circumstances where a couple has children, efforts should be made to keep schedules, everyday activities and living arrangements as normal as possible. Too much change in too short a period of time can cause confusion and stress for any child. Both parents should also establish reliable communication so their children know they can talk to either when needed.
  • Visiting a psychologist is an effective way to work through complex thoughts, emotions and regrets in a healthy, judgment-free environment. Patients can learn more about themselves and what improvements could potentially prevent similar problems in the future.
  • Divorcing couples should always take care of themselves. Relying on their network of family and friends, divorcees should continue to eat healthy, exercise regularly and enjoy time pursuing hobbies and leisure activities.
  • Mediation is an excellent resource for couples to work through disagreements in a way that is fair, safe and productive. A mediator can help open the lines of communication, encourage cooperation and assist couples in seeing situations from a different perspective.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2014 alone, there were 813,862 divorces or annulments in a population of 256,483,624. This is approximately 3.2 divorces out of every 1,000 couples.
