So, its a new year and a new you! You may be going through a Los Angeles County or Orange County divorce or are contemplating getting a divorce. Going through a divorce is an emotional and stressful time not only for the parties involved but for the children, if there are any. Here are some stress release tips on coping during such a painful period.
1) Get a breathe of fresh air. Take a walk through a mall or a park. It will remind you that there is life after an Orange County or Los Angeles County divorce.
2) Get your yoga on! I turned to yoga about 5 years ago when I suffered severe lower back pain from lifting weights. I started practicing yoga heavily in April of 2009 about 5-6 times a week to help with the “mental” stress of being a lawyer. Now, I’m an addict! I love practicing yoga on a daily basis to clear the mind, strengthen the body, challenge the body and most importantly…. to just “be”.
3) Pamper yourself. I rarely have time to pamper myself but when I do, it feels great. Take some time to enjoy a massage, manicure, pedicure or even just a simple hair cut. Taking an hour to do these things works wonders.
4) Venting. Call up a friend or family member and just let it out. Talking about your problems and issues always feels like a weight is lifted. You get the bad things off your chest and the person listening to you vent can offer constructive feedback to help you cope.
These are just a few tips that I find helpful when you find yourself in a stressful situation. If you need the assistance of an aggressive and experienced family law lawyer, contact an Orange County divorce lawyer for help.
