Managing Holiday Stress during a Divorce

By Sheryl Rentz on December 9, 2014

Divorce LawyerThe holidays are a major source of stress for thousands of families in Pennsylvania. In addition to an already hectic work week, parents try to fit in as much shopping, gift wrapping, traveling and quality time with the children as possible. But when parents are navigating a divorce, the typical holiday rush is more than just nerve-racking; it can be downright panic inducing.

In order to help reduce the pressure and anxiety this season, remember to slow down, take a breath, and follow these simple steps.

Less is more. This festive time of year often means trying to make room for everything – every party, every decoration, and every favorite meal. And while you shouldn’t forgo your favorite family traditions, remember to keep things in perspective and plan accordingly. Differentiate between the wants and needs by narrowing down what’s most important. What traditions are more meaningful to your children? This may be the year where you decide to embrace simplicity and relaxation.

Create new traditions. A lot may have changed over a short time and old traditions may not be possible. Perhaps you won’t be visiting your ex spouse’s family this year and your new apartment doesn’t have enough room for the tallest Christmas tree available. That’s okay. Explore new options for celebrating the season with your children and friends. You may discover something that brings you and your loved ones closer together.

Reach out to your attorney. It’s important to touch base with your divorce lawyer, at least briefly, to stay up-to-date on your case. Even if there is nothing new, you will at least have a clear idea of where you stand and what to expect in the coming weeks.
