How to Handle Your Divorce at Work

The divorce process can feel like an emotional roller coaster and you may have some trouble focusing on getting through the day, especially at work. Given how much you have on your plate, the last thing you need is trouble at work, so we compiled a list of helpful tips that can provide some guidance on how to deal with your divorce at work.

Focusing on Work During Your Divorce

Just because you are going through a divorce does not mean you can drop the ball at work. That said, it can be a bit of a challenge to focus on the task at hand while so much is happening in your personal life, so you may want to tell your boss about your impending divorce. Without getting into the gory details, explain your situation and, if you know of any upcoming court dates or mediation sessions, provide this information. With this knowledge, your boss may afford you a little understanding and empathy during a time when you need it most.

Although it is helpful to inform your boss about your divorce, you should be more discerning about which work colleagues you choose to tell, if any. If everyone at work is aware of your situation, you may find yourself talking about this topic far more often than you would like, which can distract you from your work and dampen your entire day. Therefore, it is best to be more selective about sharing this information.

Lastly, it is essential to look after yourself. Maintain a healthy diet, stay hydrated, and take your allotted breaks. Consider going for a walk to clear your mind or listen to some music. A good break can reset your day and put you back on track if you get distracted or feel overwhelmed.
