There are so many things to think about during a divorce. You’ll plan for living on your income alone, you’ll make arrangements for where you are going to live, and you’ll be busy separating your finances. You may be so busy, in fact, that you’ll fail to think about how different your day-to-day life will be and about how you can best move on emotionally.
Nothing can completely prepare you for a big life change, but it is important to think about how you can recover from the breakup in a healthy way. Most people think that the holidays can be a tough time for the newly divorced, but they also hold the potential to help you accept the new changes.

1. Limit How Much You Think About Your Ex-Spouse
It can be difficult to stop thinking about your ex-spouse, especially after you’ve shared so much of yourself with them, but it might be exactly what you need to do. Oftentimes, after a divorce, people will spend a great deal of time talking to their loved ones about the split and about their ex. This is healthy to a point, but after awhile it can be detrimental to your progress of moving on emotionally, keeping you trapped thinking about a relationship that is over.
2. Take Up A New Hobby Or Rededicate Yourself To An Old One
The best way to keep your mind off of your ex is to find other things to occupy your thoughts. Finding something that you can be passionate about, like photography, painting or another hobby, can help you to build a sense of who you are without your spouse and keep you from dwelling on the past.
3. Spend Some Time Alone
The Huffington Post says that the newly divorced should avoid rebound dating. It may seem like a good way to move on, but after a divorce you are likely to be in a vulnerable place emotionally. Although romance can be dangerous just after a divorce, connecting with people is a good way to move on, so instead of jumping back into the dating scene, spend more time with friends and family members who you may have lost touch with.
