It is obvious that the divorce process can be stressful. Those who must endure it still have to live their lives, but it is often easier to do so if there is an outlet to blow off steam or just relax and forget about the world for a few hours. With this post, we will identify some of the best places to beat stress during a divorce.
The gym – Exercise helps to release endorphins that naturally make a person feel better. Most people like exercising to music, so a “break up” playlist may help the experience to be that much better.
The spa – A relaxing message can help break the tension that builds in neck and back muscles. Also, the cleansing treatments may help to break a stressful schedule that may have come about because of the divorce.
The beach – Enjoying fresh sea air, along with the waves and sunshine can be relaxing. It can also be a place to collect your thoughts and put things in perspective.
A church – For some people, talking things over with a pastor or minister is relaxing. Others feel comfortable going to church to pray or volunteer.
A yoga class – In the same vein as the gym, a yoga class can help in relaxing one’s mind and taking focus away from the stressful elements of a divorce.
The movies – One of the most popular escapes, one can be enthralled in a compelling story that will take the mind off of the stress of a divorce, if only for a few hours.
A walking trail – Similar to the beach, a long walk can help one focus on (and appreciate) beautiful things in nature instead of what ails them in divorce.
