How to Survive the Holidays Both During and After Divorce

By Sheryl Rentz on December 7, 2012

For many, the holiday season is a festive and joyous time of year. However, if you are getting divorced or your divorce was only just finalized, the holidays may not help with easing the pain of your split and you may feel overwhelmed with whatever you may be feeling as a result of the divorce, such as stress, loneliness, or sadness. A newly divorced person may not look forward to this time of year, but while there is no magical solution for your holiday blues, Montgomery County divorce attorney Sheryl R. Rentz knows that there are certain things you can do to make this season easier to cope with.

Courtesy of DivorceWizards.com, consider the following tips to help you survive the holiday season:

  • Rely on a healthy support system! Ask for help coping with the holidays from family and friends, and tell them what you need from them, i.e. listening, compassion, etc.
  • Schedule time for rest and relaxation. Plan to do something relaxing, fun, and stress-free with a friend or family member; you deserve the break!
  • Create new rituals and traditions with family and friends this holiday season.
  • Act in the best interest of your child and decide ahead of time how their time will be divided, and keep the arrangements as simple as possible. Reassure your child that you will be fine while they spend time with the other parent and …
  • Reassure your child that holiday celebrations will continue, but just in a different way. Brainstorm with your child new ideas for celebrating as they can also help you create new holiday rituals!
  • Make a list of everything you need to do for the holidays and set a date to accomplish your goals by. This will make you feel more in control and less stressed.

The holiday season can be difficult to cope with when dealing with a divorce, but taking things one day and one holiday at a time will help you get through each day with patience and poise.
