How to relieve the stress of divorce

Published: 11th December 2009 - Category: Bastow Blogs - Author: Lynne Bastow

For some people the stress of going through a divorce can be overwhelming.

There are lots of relaxation and stress relieving techniques and my favourite two are as follows:

  1. Breathe
    Concentrating on your breathing has an amazing calming effect. Breathe in for 7 seconds. breathe out for 8 seconds and repeat this 4 times and you have concentrated on your breathing for one minute. Your racing mind will have slowed down.

    Getting into the habit of breathing deeply helps you switch off. Doing this twice daily really can help.

  2. Picture your perfect day
    This form of visualisation is fun and helps to draw you out of your worries.

    Imagine where you would wake up? What country are you in? Who are you with? George Clooney? The key to the success of this form of visualisation is to add the detail. Imagine the colours, what you are wearing, what the weather is like ,what it sounds like. Are you by the ocean or skiing perhaps? Have you just cashed in your winning lottery ticket?

Whatever your dream it’s your perfect day and this provides an escape where you can return to every time you need to relax.
