Negative Health Impacts of Divorce
Want to Avoid the Negative Health Impacts of Divorce?
Choose Divorce Mediation
Now more than ever, it’s important to look after your health. Divorce has known health impacts, from cardiovascular effects to weight gain. Even if divorce is much better for you in the long run, it’s important to be mindful that the cure isn’t worse than the disease.
If you think divorce has to involve fighting it out in court, divorce mediation proves otherwise. The health effects of divorce arise from the stress of divorce on multiple levels: from conflict, to a feeling of bereavement to lacking the skills or finances to take care of yourself.
Divorce mediation is a process that can be fully compliant with the law while at the same time giving back the power over your split to you and your divorcing spouse. Divorce mediation doesn’t mean doing divorce “by the book.” For example if your spouse took care of all the cooking, a good divorce plan can involve learning how to cook, or sharing meal plans. Financial education and planning is also important during uncertain times. In mediation you can make a careful plan that benefits you both. This will lower your stress levels rather than introducing the stress of an adversarial divorce.
The Health Benefits of a Peaceful Divorce
Divorce is considered one of the major traumatic life events: it is shown to cause stress that is second only to bereavement. https://www.bridgestorecovery.com/blog/when-marriage-ends-the-impact-of-divorce-on-mental-and-behavioral-health/
At Santa Clara Divorce Mediation, we use our legal, financial and psychoanalytical expertise to actively reduce the trauma of divorce.
There are so many things to consider in times like these: do you still trust your ex to make medical decisions for you? How can you plan to cover yourself financially if you get sick? How do you agree on homeschooling your kids? How do you make sure you stay physically healthy and eat right / get enough exercise? And how do you make sure your retirement plan or financial plan stays steady?
Fortunately, divorce mediation is the place to resolve any issue related to your divorce. Divorce mediation is not just about asset division and the law. The mediators at Santa Clara Divorce Mediation can work with you to tackle your divorce on all levels: emotional, financial, psychoanalytical and practical, for better emotional, financial and physical health.
