Surviving the Holidays: Do’s and Do Not’s for the Newly Divorced or Separated

The holiday season is here, and it may feel like you’re going through it “alone” after a divorce or separation. Whether you have children or are child-free, newly divorced, or grieving a loss, here are some recommendations to help you make it through these times while going through big life transitions. 


  1. Take care of yourself emotionally
  2. Plan Ahead
  3. Create new traditions
  4. Focus on your Children
  5. Take time for yourself
  6. Remember it will get easier

Do not:

  1. Judge yourself
  2. Cancel the holidays all-together
  3. Let sad memories get you down
  4. Isolate from your loved ones
  5. Think you’re going through it alone
