We all know the typical ways to take care of yourself (eating right, exercise, drink lots of water, etc.), but here are 5 creative ways that may be of benefit to you as well:

  1. Meditation/Mindfulness/Mediation

“An ounce of mediation is worth a pound of arbitration and a ton of litigation”

-Joseph Grynbaum

Even just 10-20 minutes every morning to sit in silence and focus on your breathing or to set your intentions for the day will have a huge impact on your day in a positive way.  When we are mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable, we are better able to handle stressful situations; we become more motivated, creative, resilient and better problem solvers.

Using alternative “no court” alternative dispute resolution strategies and help solve separation disputes promptly and in a way that allows you to retain some control over the process.

  1. Social Connections

“Evidence shows that having even weak social connections in a stressful situation is really good for your health and your ability to handle that situation”

-Jane McGonigal

Spend some time with family and friends. Sometimes clients may feel isolated and alone when going through a family law matter, but it is important to stay connected with friends and loved ones who support you.   These people will help nurture you and keep you moving forward in the right direction. Just make sure that these people are positive and bring you up instead of dragging you down.

  1. Getting Out Into Nature

“In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks”

-John Muir

Spending time outdoors and getting fresh air is great for your mental health and reduces anxiety, increases alertness, elevates your mood and is great way to increase your Vitamin D intake!  Going for a bike ride, a fun hike, enjoying a leisurely walk in the park or even just getting out in your backyard or going for a walk around your block has great health benefits and helps reduces stress.

  1. Make Time for Yourself

“The most important time in the world is the time you make for yourself”

-author unknown

You may feel that all of your time is being spent taking care of others or working hard to support your family, but it is also important to take time out for yourself to do something that you enjoy. Whether it is going for a massage, taking a bubble bath, staring a new project, or simply taking time to read an enjoyable book that you have been putting off.  When you carve time out for yourself, everyone around you benefits from the more relaxed you. Win win!

  1. Start a Daily Gratitude Journal

“When I stared counting my blessings, my whole life turned around”

-Willie Nelson

Even during the most trying times in your life, when you write down what you are grateful for now and by focusing on the positive things in your life, multiple studies have shown a link between gratitude and well-being including impressive benefits for better sleep, reduced stress and depression, and increased happiness. Grateful people also have been shown to have reduced aggression and enhanced empathy. Try writing down 3 to 10 things each day that you are grateful for and see how this practice can transform your life for the better!
