After a divorce, everyone needs a breather. Sure we all want to jump right into our new lives, but emotions and stresses from your ex probably drained you. Sometimes it’s good to just back in touch with yourself. During your marriage, you lived your life for two and now you’re living for just one. It’ s a good idea to take a little time to get used to that again along with getting re-centered. Between family, attorneys and your ex coming at you from all angles, being by yourself for a little bit might just be one of the best post-divorce moves you could make.
People who have been married for a long time sometimes don’t know what to do with themselves alone. It’s almost as if they forgot how to be alone after a break-up. This is good excercise to show yourself that being alone is a good thing and it is actually enjoyable. Go to a local museum alone and soak in the art. Or, go to a movie alone. This is a great one because you can see whatever you want and you don’t have to share your popcorn. Spring is also a great time of year to enjoy some alone time. You can go for a weekend getaway alone. It can be as simple as a trip to your local beach or maybe a spa day with some relaxation for your body and mind. You can also take see a play or find a local book signing with an author you admire. How about going for a long jog or a long drive with the windows open and your favorite song playing. You can sit in a park with a book or ride a bike for some excercise. Whatever you decide to do alone enoy the peace that comes along with it! You deserve it!!
