Tips to Stay Focused on Work During Your Divorce

Ending a marriage is an emotional process that can evoke feelings of anger, depression, fear, disappointment, excitement, and everything else in between. With so much going on in your life, it can be a challenge to focus on the day-to-day demands of your job. However, the world keeps turning even during a divorce, so it is crucial to stay on task at work. To make this situation easier, our team compiled a list of tips to help you get through the workday.

Staying on Track at Work

The last thing you want is for your work to suffer during an already difficult time. To keep this area of your life from falling apart, you need to develop new techniques and strategies to remain focused at work.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Inform your employer or immediate supervisor: Most people want to keep their private life separate from their work life, which is a wise decision. That said, it would be a good idea to let your supervisor know you are going through a divorce without getting into the personal details. Your divorce might require you to occasionally miss work if you need to attend court dates or mediation sessions, so make sure your supervisor knows about it. He or she might also be more understanding if you have an off day.
  • Limit and postpone reading and responding to divorce-related messages: Dealing with your divorce during the workday is a surefire way to get distracted, so put this off until later. Only respond to messages that require your immediate attention.
  • Do more and stay busy: If you want to keep your mind occupied and far away from thoughts of your divorce, take on some more projects. The less time you have to sit idly and stew over the details of what went wrong, the better you will be able to function at work.
  • Take a break: If you ever find yourself in need of a walk or some fresh air to clear your mind, take a break and go outside or grab a cup of coffee. Whatever you need to do to get back in the right headspace, take a few minutes for yourself before returning to the task at hand.
