Hunt Down a New Hobby

One of the most important aspects of getting through a divorce is learning how to reclaim life without your partner. To that end, try and think of a hobby you used to engage in before you got married, or something that you've always wanted to try but haven't had the opportunity to yet.

In that vein, a more physical activity like rock climbing or a sports club could be a great opportunity to get in some exercise while also participating in an activity that takes your mind off of the divorce for a little bit.

Surround Yourself with Friends & Professionals

Having a support network you can rely on is key to getting through a divorce. Keeping your friends close to your side is a good idea, but don't discount the value of professional support in the form of your divorce lawyer and professionals they refer to you, such as property valuation professionals.

Working closely with your lawyer and their team enables you to take the burden of the divorce process off your shoulders, instead entrusting it to individuals who have decades of experience ushering people through marriage dissolutions.

Don't Discount Mediation

Many people, especially in combative divorces, would like nothing more than to drag their partner through the courtroom. However, don't count out mediation or other methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) early. They could help you find a more peaceful path forward in your divorce and ultimately result in a better long-term outcome than you'd achieve litigating your divorce in court.
