The holidays is a time of stress for many people, but this is especially true of people going through a divorce. As stress builds, health can suffer. This compounds stress and makes the holidays even more difficult. If you're undergoing a divorce at this emotional time of year, these tips will help you manage your health and lessen your stress.
Get Enough Sleep
Given the link between sleep deprivation and depression, getting adequate sleep is very important for your emotional and physical health.
Make Time to Exercise
The holidays are a time when exercise routines can fall by the wayside. Not only is the weather outside cold and wet, but between meetings with your divorce lawyer and holiday events to attend, your schedule may be extra full. Still, exercise is important for managing stress and is therefore more important than ever.
Make a firm commitment to maintain your ordinary exercise schedule. Ask a friend or family member to exercise with you--someone who will prevent you from making excuses not to exercise. If possible, get a gym membership that will make it possible to exercise, regardless of the weather outside.
The holidays are a time of year when alcohol is prevalent at many parties and family events. Given the stress of your divorce, you may be tempted to drink more than is healthy or wise. Excessive drinking can lead to hangovers, difficulty sleeping and drunk driving, which could hurt your court case. Talk to your lawyer, like those at Backus Law Group, about ways to keep your record squeaky clean for the court. Follow these tips to prevent problems.
These tips will help you enjoy your holidays, despite the personal circumstances.Share

While I took a few business classes in college, I left early to start my own business. I thought I had the knowledge I needed to become a great business owner and was eager to start my business. Soon, I had a new business that was actually performing pretty well in sales. Unfortunately, I hadn't taken any law courses in college, and I soon realized I made a few mistakes when starting my business that could cause me some legal trouble. Thankfully, a great business lawyer helped me correct my mistakes before I had any legal problems, but I then decided to take those business law courses. I want to help business owners and anyone else who would like to learn more about the law by starting a blog where I will share what I have learned and will continue to learn. I hope I can help you!
