Let’s discuss your past holiday rituals and how you can create new ones. Find ways to maintain connection and reduce that lonely holiday feeling.

My advice on the #1 tip for How to Prepare for Divorce was featured on Divorce and Your Money and you can read it here: There are many points to consider when preparing for divorce since preparation is key, but I believe the most important tip overall is to create a healthy inner state of mind along with good self-care. Your mindset is the one thing you have the ability to control, which will determine the type of divorce that you have. This calls for you to be emotionally prepared and less reactive, which benefits communication and decision-making. The right state of mind requires you to stay focused on your goal and create a plan for your life that you will need to get in order, which includes access to important documents.
Having the proper mindset also means being informed by doing research so that you aren’t blindsided by unforeseen facts and circumstances. To ensure a healthy emotional state, establish a support network that includes trusted friends and family, therapists, coaches, etc. Remember to honor and support yourself every step of the way with plenty of love, self-confidence, and self-care. Keep your eye on your future dreams and visions, and if you’re feeling overwhelmed…just BREATHE.
