Nobody ever describes divorce as an easy time in life. Far from it. It’s emotionally traumatic, mentally challenging and there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to deal with everything that needs to be addressed. The one thing that’s easy for people to let slide is taking care of themselves and yet, that’s the very thing that will help you get through this while making the tough decisions you face.
Joining me to talk about what taking care of yourself means, how you can do it and why you might not, is fellow divorce coach Martha Bodyfelt. Martha is no stranger to having to take care of herself: her dream career in the Army ended abruptly with a devastating injury and five years after that, her marriage ended. Despite everything she’d learned recovering from her injury, Martha wasn’t eating or sleeping. She remembers cleaning out her closet in the early morning hours eventually falling asleep on the floor exhausted.
Martha blogs about divorce at her blog at SurvivingYourSplit.com and has a free download: Divorce Warrior Survival Kit.
