Learning to Thrive after Divorce

A divorce can be an extremely long process. Not only does it take six months for a divorce to become finalized in California, but the journey frequently takes twists, turns, leaps, and pitfalls to the point where you might describe it as an “emotional roller coaster.” As a result, it is not uncommon for those who emerge at the end of a divorce case to sometimes feel lost, depressed, or confused as to what direction to move in their life.

This is an understandable issue. When a lengthy divorce case has taken up the last half-year of your life (or maybe longer), some people may not know what to do with themselves with all of the newfound freedoms and lack of responsibilities they may have. For those who may be struggling with a similar situation, our attorneys have come up with a few valuable tips that may be able to help them thrive in their life after divorce.

Get In Shape

Many people use their new freedom after a divorce to focus back on themselves for a little while, which is perfectly understandable since so much time during the last six-months-plus has been dedicated to complicated negotiations, litigation hearings, and other processes. Some people choose to use this opportunity to focus on starting and sticking to a new diet to help them lose weight.

Others choose to join a gym and start improving their physical condition (some do so in addition to starting a diet). Both of these options are great because they can not only improve your overall health for many years to come, but they can also increase your energy levels and self-confidence, both of which have been found to lead to a dramatic improvement in overall quality of life.

Get a Pet

Many people who find themselves longing for the companionship of their marriage opt to get a pet. This can satisfy the need to care for another as well as grant you a loyal and loving friend for a long time to come. If you find yourself feeling lonely after your divorce, consider finding a companion at a reputable breeder or adopting an animal from a local shelter.

Some people even choose to go a step further and start volunteering their time at one of these local shelters as well. This can give you not only an abundance of new furry friends, but a sense of rewarding fulfillment knowing that you are working to help those who need it.

Travel the World

For those who have the ability, traveling the world and gaining new, life-enriching experiences is a great way to get your mind off of the messy case you have just finished. Even if you don’t have the ability to go far, simply traveling a state over or maybe to a different city may give you the opportunity to do or try something you have never done before. Who knows, you may find you love it!

Traveling to different lands may also teach you things about yourself you never knew. You may have never known that you were an avid lover of Japanese food before your trip to Tokyo or how much you enjoy hiking until your day trip into the Swiss Alps. These discoveries can give you something you enjoy for the rest of your life, no matter what turns your life takes going forward.
