Build Some Positive Habits to Get You Through Your Divorce

While it can be easier said than done, sometimes forcing yourself to embrace the power of positive thinking can make a big difference in your ability to emotionally navigate your divorce. Building these positive habits takes time and practice, of course, but it can be quite valuable to your emotional health.

Here are a few quick examples of some of these habits:

  • Talking yourself up: When you’re going through a difficult time it’s easy to get down on yourself and focus on the negatives. You might judge yourself for spending too much money, for not working enough, for not focusing on your children enough, etc. It’s important to get into the habit of affirming yourself on a daily basis and to give yourself permission to focus on yourself every now and then. There are entire books written on this subject that you may find helpful.
  • Take control: Be proactive with going after what you want out of your new life rather than reactive and waiting for your new life to turn into what you want. Feeling like you have control over your life is a great way to improve your spirits and your confidence.
  • Solve little problems: It’s common for people going through or just out of a divorce to be overwhelmed with the number of problems or issues they need to confront. Solving little problems and checking them off your list can help you build confidence and momentum that allows you to take on some of the bigger ones.

  • "I first came to Ms. Jacquelyn Lutz of Appelhof, Pfeifer and Hart in October of 2016. It was definitely the worst time in my life and she compassionately spoke with me about my options. Ms. Lutz thoroughly explained the laws, statutes, process and what to expect going forward. What was supposed to be one case, turned into three intricate cases that took a huge toll on me and my family. Ms. Lutz represented me in court on all three cases with a vast knowledge of the laws and how to proceed accordingly. During all three cases she kept me informed, calm, gave me resources to utilize, and (most important) gave me a realistic view of what may come next. Ms. Lutz knew each case required a great deal of knowledge and creative thinking on how to legally proceed forward with each case. My family and friends are forever grateful for the amazing representation by Ms. Lutz. I highly recommend Ms. Lutz for anyone needing or considering superb representation for any kind of family law.
