Divorce is a difficult process, but it is a process, and you can get through it. The more centered and calm you stay, the smoother the process can be. Yes, that’s easier said than done, but this TEDTalk gives some pointers that can help you do just that.
Briefly, Davis Sbarra suggests:
1. Sleep – getting your rest is key (but don’t rely on drugs or alcohol to knock yourself out).
2. Cultivate a sense of self-compassion and common humanity – don’t beat yourself up. Give yourself the love and care that you need.
3. Pull yourself back together – divorce can make you question who you are. Tap into the relationships and activities that enhance your sense of self.
