Oak Brook divorce attorneyEach year, when the clock strikes midnight on December 31, people around the world celebrate the ending of the year and welcome the new year in. One of the most popular traditions that is observed for New Year’s is making resolutions to improve yourself and your life. For some people, this may mean quitting smoking or eating healthier and exercising more. If you are going through or have recently finalized your divorce, there is no better way to start your new year than by making it a priority to be happier and healthier than ever before. Here are a few New Year’s resolutions that you can commit to after your Illinois divorce:

  1. Pick and Choose Your Battles

Fighting with your ex is exhausting. For many couples, divorce means constant arguments and opposition about nearly every aspect of the life they once shared. The divorce is probably not even the beginning of the fighting; you have most likely been arguing with your spouse about trivial things for years. This New Year, try to be more selective about your battles with your ex. If you feel an argument about to erupt, try to determine whether or not the fight is worth it. Chances are, things will be easier and you will be happier if you just refuse to fight.

  1. Make Your Children a Priority

Every parent wants what is best for their child, and this means making sure that they are put first in nearly every aspect of your life. Divorce is hard for everyone, but it can be especially difficult for your children, so in the new year, you can make an additional effort to meet their needs, spend time with them, discuss their feelings about the divorce, and remind them that you will always be there for them. Whatever you do, you should make sure your children know that they are your number one priority and that they are loved very much.
