Dear Divorcée, 3 Way to Handle the Holidays After Divorce

The holidays are a challenging time after a divorce. With co-parenting, and all of the emotional transitions of divorce, it can be overwhelming at times.

Here’s 3 ways to make the holidays go a little bit smoother.

 1. If you co-parent, talk with ex-spouse and plan arrangements and visitations for the season. Do this as early as possible. Then sit down and explain to the children (age appropriately), what will take place. This will allow them to know what to expect. 

2. If you don’t have children, commit to an event, party or to host for the holidays. This will keep you accountable to get out and socialize during the holidays, instead of feeling down and being alone.

3. Create new traditions for your new life instead of focusing on past holiday rituals.

Remember, it will get a little easier each year.
