5 Tips to Keep Your Cool During an Insane Divorce

5 Tips to Keep Your Cool During an Insane Divorce

Share/Bookmark

Aside from the death of a loved one, a divorce is one of the most challenging and painful experiences that a person can endure. Time will eventually heal all wounds, but it may not feel that way while still lost in the drama of your divorce. Luckily, there are a few things that you can do to help yourself.

1. Surround Yourself With a Strong Support Network

A support system may include friends, family and if necessary, even a therapist. It may also mean talking to other people who are also going through a divorce. Joining together and sharing your story with those who understand is not only comforting, but you may be able to help others as well.

2. Allow the Time to Properly Grieve

When you go through a divorce, you essentially go through the same process of grieving that you do when someone dies. This can be a very difficult experience, but it is a necessary part of the healing process. The law offices of Katz & Phillips, divorce attorneys, want you to know that you should accept that it takes longer than just a few months to recover from a divorce. You will have many bad days. Sometimes it’s best to give in and let yourself cry, get angry, shout or do whatever else makes you feel capable of releasing your emotions.

3. Making Pampering Yourself a Priority

Pampering yourself can mean a number of different things, from practicing care of your skin and body to treating yourself to a steak dinner at your favorite restaurant. Whatever your pleasure, allow yourself to have it during this time. This isn’t to say that you should binge on cake every night for the next six months, but if there are a few things that you’ve been denying yourself due to lack of time or money, now is the time to make them happen. The one benefit of a divorce is that for the first time in a long time, you get to make yourself a priority.

4. Have Realistic Expectations of Others

A divorce doesn’t only mean dividing up all of your possessions. It also often means dividing up your friends and family. It’s important to have realistic expectations of others and remember that you are probably not the only person hurting. Depending on your situation, your friends and family members may also feel upset about the split, and not everyone will necessarily take your side. You may need to be extra forgiving and accept that some people will stick by you and some will not. Those that do are your true friends.

5. Get Excited About the Future

No one ever wants to go through a divorce, but great things can often come out of terrible situations. Accept that you were wrong about your path in life and be willing to fully embrace your future. Get excited about things that you were not able to accomplish while with your partner, such as returning to school, going traveling alone or meeting someone new and falling in love again.

After a divorce, it is normal to wonder if you will ever feel happy again. The time it takes to do so will vary greatly depending on the individual. However, if you make the effort to practice optimism and take good care of yourself, you will surely be back on your feet in no time. Where you go from there is up to you.

For Nadine Swayne, contributing freelance writer, optimism and support are key elements to dealing with difficult situations in life.  Divorce is never easy and can be an emotional time for you and your family.  The group of Katz & Phillips, divorce attorneys, understand the needs of their clients during this trying time and use their expertise to ensure your rights are protected. These attorneys have worked on hundreds of cases and utilize that knowledge to handle your case with the least amount of stress and time.

Recycling came into the public’s attention about 15 years ago and has been fully embraced – but the newest craze to hit the eco world is up-cycling. Up-Cycling is the process of taking one thing (that is either broken, old or unused) and turning it into something new.

There are loads of Up-Cycling trends out there at the moment, but one of the main ones is making things out of old Vinyl records. You’d be surprised how incredibly inventive people are being with this too, it seems like everything and anything can be made out of these vintage goodies!

Here’s some of the most interesting examples we found:

1. The Vinyl Bowl

The Vinyl bowl is probably the most common creation from cold records – it’s easy to do and so simple and effective. Not to mention, incredibly trendy too! Imagine how good this would look on your coffee table!

A clock is a pretty simple thing to make from an old record – as (usually) it keeps it’s shape and the ‘making’ process is simple and quick. You can probably find one of these lovely pieces at a local craft fair of craft store.

3. The Vinyl Book

This is one of the most iconic and creative uses of old vinyl records, and is one of my favourite’s. Great for photo albums or scrapbooks – all you need to do to make your own is cut out a vinyl shape and glue it over the original cover. Extra creativity-points if the title of the record relates to the content of your book!

Black and White…

Black and White…

Share/Bookmark

Black and white is a number of monochrome forms in visual arts. Most forms of visual technology start out in black and white, then slowly evolve into color as technology progresses.

Black-and-white as a description is also something of a misnomer, for in addition to black and white most of these media included varying shades of gray. Further, many prints, especially those produced earlier in the development of photography, were in sepia (mainly to provide archival stability), which gave a richer, more subtle shading than reproductions in plain black-and-white, although less so than color.
