Increasing your knowledge and indulging in a few culinary delights will only uplift your mood. Another thing that can uplift your mood and be a source of healthy living for you is exercise. So these are some small hobbies I indulged in aside from launching myself neck deep in my job and my work to go farther in my healing process.
Keep your memories but let go of the past
Cherishing the memories you had with someone is not a bad thing, but it is essential to let go of the person as being your romantic partner in the future. This means that you will no longer fantasize about the both of you being together again and you will no longer think about a future which has a place for that person in your life.
It is best to let go of the person who is now divorced from you because the marriage you once shared with them no longer exists. It will do you no good to think of ways of getting back together with someone with whom things had not worked out even when you were married to them.
Joining a support group
The last and final step I took in healing from my divorce was by joining a support group for divorcees. This helped me meet a lot of other people who had been through the same trauma as I had. They offered support and empathy. They also gave me hope of the fact that I was on my track to becoming a regular, functional adult as opposed to the guilt-ridden and melancholic person I had become during the first few months of my divorce.
