Divorce can be hard, especially this time of year. But with the new year comes the promise of new beginnings and a chance to start fresh. It's a great time to resolve to try and work on the things that inevitably get pushed off while the focus is on the holiday season - the things that matter most towards taking care of yourself.
It's different for everyone, but one of the best ways you can take care of yourself is to make sure that you are exercising regularly. Exercise is a natural stress reliever, and taking care of your health should always be a priority. Make it one this year, and try make an effort towards being more active.
Its also important to be sure you are making enough time for yourself. Whether it be taking some time to sit down and read a book you've been meaning to or taking up a new hobby that you've always wanted to, making sure that you take the time to focus on yourself goes a long way towards ensuring that you don't feel stretched too thin. Don't forget to take care of yourself.
Finally, try not to be too hard on yourself when following through with your New Year's resolutions, if you have them. While it is good to have goals for the year, it can end up being detrimental in the end if you don't forgive yourself for not strictly adhering to those goals every once and a while. Choose goals that are attainable and that are healthy for you and then work towards them with the mindset that the only point of the them is get you to a better place.
We hope you had a wonderful New Years holiday, and here's to a great start to 2019!
