Going Through a Divorce During Valentine's Day? How to Make the Most of It

Divorce is a challenging process to navigate any time of the year. Valentine’s Day may bring up old memories of romance and good times and leave you feeling sad about your current situation. Instead of focusing on feeling down, look for these few tips to get through Valentine’s Day while going through a divorce.

5 Tips for Surviving Valentine’s Day During a Divorce

Keep in mind that your situation is temporary, and time often heals heartbreak and pain. So here’s how you can be proactive during the month of February and keep your spirits up:

· Surround Yourself with Friends: Forget about Valentine’s Day – celebrate Galentine’s Day instead. You don’t have to be in love to enjoy the holiday. Instead, focus on all kinds of love in your life: family, friends, children, and colleagues. When you acknowledge your support system and how many people love you, the month of love will feel even more meaningful.

· Keep Busy: Fill your schedule with activities, whether it be a book club, cooking classes, group exercise classes, tennis lessons, or girl’s nights out. When busy and distracted, you are less likely to focus on what’s missing.

· Set Small Goals and Celebrate Your Consistency: The easiest way to build self-confidence and self-love is by working hard to improve yourself. Whether you have a goal to exercise consistently, read 2-novels this month, cook at home 3x per week, or call x amount of friends to catch up, celebrate your successes and continue with the next goal.

· Take a Break from Social Media: The last thing you want to see is tribute after tribute to all the spouses on social media around Valentine’s Day. Take a break! You don’t have to read every Valentine’s update from your co-worker or random friend from middle school.

· Sign Up for Service Opportunities: You will see how easy it is to forget your troubles when you help people going through hard times themselves. Sign up to volunteer at a hospital, a library, or an animal shelter. Connect with people and learn about their stories.
