Be More Physical
While taking care of your mental state is a smart idea, taking care of your body is also important. Maybe Valentine’s Day is a time for you to do something that you enjoy and that makes you feel like a better person. Whether it’s taking a long walk, getting a massage, or doing some yoga, do something to take care of yourself. Step outside of your normal comfort zone and try something different. Find a new tradition or habit to indulge in now that you’re divorced.
Be Growth Focused
If you’re feeling supported but need something more to fill the empty time, many like to focus on personal growth. This could be starting a business you’ve been thinking about, making that job change, or even changing your home. Adding some form of forward momentum and growth to your efforts can help the healing greatly. In many cases, people find this can be the biggest change.
Remember that your feelings are valid and that you are not alone. There are many people who are going through similar experiences. Valentine’s Day can be a difficult day for those who are going through a divorce, but it’s important to remember that this too shall pass. With time, patience, and self-care, people get through this difficult period.
