Journey to Wellness During a Divorce
2020 was an unusual year to say the least. To top it off, you may have found yourself in the middle of a divorce. Whether you initiated the divorce, or you were unexpectedly served divorce papers from your spouse, there is a level of stress that comes naturally with the process. Divorce signals the end of a relationship with the person that you built, or planned to build, a life with. For some women, a divorce is welcomed. For others, a divorce is taboo.
In South Carolina, unless you have a fault based grounds for divorce, such as adultery or physical cruelty, you will have to live separate and apart from your spouse for at least one year in order to be granted a divorce. Therefore, the journey to finding your happiness and your new norm after divorce can be lengthy. You will need patience and an outlet.
While your attorney can guide you through the legal aspects of a divorce, you may need to utilize the services of a therapist to cope with the emotional distress and embrace healing. If you enjoy nature, hiking or road tripping may offer you a chance to escape for a bit. Practicing yoga may help ground you. Nutrition and exercise will help you maintain your physical and emotional fitness.
