If you are one of the many Massachusetts residents who is considering divorce this year or in the future, you likely have a lot on your plate. It can be very easy to lose yourself when you are so concerned about figuring out the best way to go about your divorce and worried about what your life will look like when you are done. Now and when you are ready to start working toward your divorce agreement, take time to take care of yourself. Your health and well-being matters.

Divorce is stressful. It may be the most stressful thing you will ever go through. This stress is enough to unhinge the most rational and composed adults. When the process and the pressure becomes too much, it is very easy to make poor decisions that can leave you with a divorce settlement that does not work well in your favor. No one wants that — except maybe your soon-to-be ex.

While you may not feel like it, taking time for you is important when going through the divorce process. Seeking assistance from counselors may help you work through some things that are weighing you down. Going out with friends, taking care of the children and focusing on the good can all prove helpful as well.

It is your divorce and your life. You need to work toward a divorce agreement that fits your needs, not anyone else’s. You can best do that by remembering to take care of yourself throughout the process.
