33 Ideas: Divorce Self-Care

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

Do you have a self-care practice?

If you're getting divorced, you've probably heard it a million need to do your self-care!

But...self-care isn't bubble baths, spa treatments, and eating anything and everything you want. It also doesn't mean spending lots or money or even leaving your home.

I're getting feel bad every don't know what your financial future holds...and you don't have enough time to do half the things on the to-do list. Taking care of yourself seems selfish and indulgent.

I get it…I've been there...when you’re navigating a divorce, life is chaotic and exhausting

Some days the best you can do is get out of bed. Some days even that doesn’t happen. Old routines are gone. Sometimes you spend all your time and energy just getting through the day. BUT…this is the time when you need support and consistency the most. Even just a quick 5 minute break can reset the tone for the day.

Here are some ideas:

  • Drink a glass of water with lemon

  • Go for a walk

  • Meditate or listen to a guided meditation

  • Read affirmations

  • Sing

  • Stretch or do yoga

  • Pray

  • Spend time with your pet

  • Journal

  • Make a to-do list (or a "not-to-do" list)

  • Do a cross-word or sudoku

  • Call a trusted friend

  • Play an instrument

  • Water your plants

  • Take a warm shower or a bath

  • Read

  • Sit...just sit and breathe

  • Take a nap

  • Watch funny YouTube videos

  • Dance

  • Savor a cup of tea

  • Clean out a drawer or closet

  • Stop scrolling

  • Go for a swim

  • Cook or bake

  • Search online for inspirational messages and quotes

  • Make a gratitude list

  • Light a candle

  • Sudoku, cross-word, jigsaw

  • Go outdoors

  • Knit or crochet (if you don't know how,..learn on YouTube)

  • Eat a snack (whole foods are best)

  • Subscribe to informative and encouraging email lists [email me at if you want to join mine]
