When you’re going through a divorce, it’s important to take some time for yourself to relax and recover. This is an emotionally difficult time for you, and it can cause financial strain as well. No matter what you’re going through, it’s most important that you take care of your physical and mental health.
For most situations, you’d instantly become a widow or widower and be entitled to all the traditional benefits of any other spouse. Having an unusual status while being separated doesn’t necessarily negate how the courts distribute property after a person’s death, particularly if you are still technically married.
When you make the decision to get a divorce, it starts a long, sometimes argumentative process. It isn’t just you who is impacted. Your spouse, children and families may also be affected. That can lead to a lot of stress, so try to focus on the positives as much as you can during this time.

Some other divorce coping mechanisms that can help you during a divorce include decluttering and taking stock of your assets. You need to take stock of your assets for financial purposes, but items that are yours or that neither of you want to keep can be thrown away or donated. If you go through assets and aren’t sure of whether or not you or your spouse will keep them, pack them away if they cause you pain.
Another thing that can help during a divorce is to take time for yourself. Whether it’s an outing with your friends or an afternoon at a spa, having a day to yourself can help you focus on your mental and physical health. Spending too much of your energy on the divorce is not healthy, so make sure to take time to relax.
