5 NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS TO MAKE AFTER YOUR DIVORCE

If you’re having trouble returning to “normal” after your divorce, don’t worry – you’re definitely not alone. Although it’s easy to look at your divorce as an “end,” in reality this is a fresh start; an opportunity to put the past behind you and focus on the future. In this blog, we discuss five great New Year’s resolutions to make if you were divorced in 2015.

1. STICK TO YOUR BUDGET

Divorce involves splitting up your marital assets, so it’s important to make sure you’re financially stable as you become accustomed to your new life. Creating a budget is key, but actually sticking to it is just as important. Being financially independent can help you feel more relaxed, confident, and self-assured.

2. PUT YOURSELF FIRST

While the interests of your kids should always be a priority, many individuals find that they are so preoccupied that they neglect themselves. Hit the gym, eat better, get a manicure – start taking care of yourself again, and you’ll start to feel better and more confident.

3. DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF

It’s normal to be a bit frazzled after a divorce, but it’s important not to freak out over minor things. Take a deep breath, relax, and learn to make the best of the situation. You’ll find that when you can handle minor problems in a healthy way, the bigger challenges seem less insurmountable.

4. EXPLORE YOUR PASSIONS

As stated earlier, divorce is a fresh start. This is the time for you to reconnect with the things you love, and the hobbies you may have set aside during your marriage. Not only will this help take your mind off the divorce, but it can also help you learn more about yourself.

5. WORK TOWARD A HEALTHY CO-PARENTING RELATIONSHIP

Depending on your unique situation, this can be one of the most difficult things to do after a divorce. It is very normal for you to hold on to some resentment for your ex, but it is extremely important that you work toward a healthy relationship for the benefit of your children. Can’t stand to spend time in the same room? Come up with a workable arrangement that helps you avoid seeing their other parent as much as possible.
