Getting SplitReady Episode 18.1: Put On Your Own Mask Before Assisting Others – The Importance of Self Care in Divorce

Divorce can take a huge toll on a person. Cortisol increases, stress levels increase, and sleep is affected. You may even find that you miss those all-important exercise sessions. Mentally, feelings of isolation and fear can crowd out any positive or optimistic feelings. Without deliberate and active management, the adverse impact on your health and well-being can be significant.

Join us for a discussion about self-care with Amy Schillinger about the importance of self-care during divorce and ways to manage stress to stay healthy.

Also joining the conversation are Jessica Malmquist from Greenwich Law Group LLC and Pamela Rak, LCSW.
