New Year’s resolutions during divorce

On Behalf of | Jan 5, 2017 | Divorce

For those going through divorce in Kentucky, New Year’s resolutions may focus more on survival than on weight loss, healthy eating and gym habits. While a new beginning is a great time for anyone to evaluate where they are and where they want to be in life, it is especially important for those enduring divorce to take a moment to make goals that can impact their lives now as well as in the future.


Divorcemag.com states that making goals that pertain to interactions with an ex-spouse is one of the best steps a separated couple can make. Some of the top areas to work on are patience and respect. While many feel that their ex-partner does not deserve respect, showing kindness and positivity can affect decisions during divorce proceedings as well as set the tone for respect in front of children.


While traditional New Year’s goals may not seem important, visiting the gym and choosing healthy foods can help relieve some of the more difficult moments of divorce. Healthy people feel better and have an easier time handling stress, making it important to establish good habits to get through till the divorce is finalized and take care of oneself in the years ahead.


Forbes advises women who are currently or will be soon seeking a divorce to become more involved in the financial matters of their household. Studies have shown that 25 percent of women are not involved in decisions about financial topics. This can prove devastating in a divorce if the woman does not have needed information about various accounts and investments.
