Breathe Away Stress from Your Divorce
Key Points
  • Breathing exercises often helps with stress. Deep cleansing breaths and stretching your arms above your head will help reduce your stress.
  • Enjoy the simply pleasures you may have forgotten in the midst of a divorce, taking a long walk, hot bubble bath, read a book, or just remove toxic people from your life. Things simply tasks and more can help relieve stress.
  • Forgive yourself, and those who have hurt you. Holding on to grudges steals your strength, confidence and power.

Take a moment for a deep cleansing breath. Go ahead and stand. Stretch your arms above your head. Take a deep breath and exhale slowly and completely.

Feels good, doesn’t it? There’s no better way to end your day, than with a positively healthy breath.

Easy and fun, these do-it-yourself home remedies are positive actions to help reduce your stress and enjoy life’s simple pleasures:

  • Take long, hot bubble baths by candlelight.
  • Re-read a simple book, one you remember from a peaceful time in your life.
  • Make a list of routine things you must do, and start eliminating others.
  • Clear your calendar.
  • Do simple, fun things you haven’t done in awhile.
  • Defy convention: park your car crooked or eat pizza for breakfast!
  • Break the monotony: watch a television program you have never seen before (and never thought you would).
  • Blast the stereo and sing out loud!
  • Walk around the block everyday. Go ahead, just one trip around the corner after work or before your morning shower. Your brain will appreciate it. (Something called "endorphins," which act as nature’s healers, become activated by exercise.)
  • Talk away your worries with a friend you trust.
  • Be a self-healer, not a self-medicator; drink lots of fresh water and fruit juice.
  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Take time out to play.
  • Do a good deed for someone else.
  • Give in once in awhile. You don’t always have to be right!
  • Be open to being available. Don’t isolate yourself or hold regularly scheduled pity parties.
  • Get a pet or visit a petting zoo.
  • Make the most of time alone.
  • Serve others with your talents.
  • Sip a cup of herbal tea - slowly.
  • Slow down.
  • Use your common sense and trust your instincts.
  • Turn off the TV and visit with a neighbor.
  • Forgive those who have hurt you.
  • Forgive yourself.
  • Forget the past.

NO PROMISE OF HAPPINESS -- Even when divorce ends a bad marriage gone terribly wrong, a divorce does not make people happy. Happiness, such as it is, is something that happens, if and when it happens, after the bad marriage ends, not because the bad marriage ends.
