From letting go of negative feelings to working with a mediator, these five tips help you address problems and concerns during a divorce quickly to alleviate issues. Try these for better communication and reduced stress.

1. Don't be afraid to be negative

You can have negative emotions about your divorce. Feel free to cry, scream or worry. Remember, though, that when you're talking with your ex or attorney, staying calm and collected helps you get more done.

2. Take a break

Divorces have the potential to drain you, so it's okay to need a break. Take a spa weekend away, spend time with your friends or enjoy other things you love.

It's hard losing friends and loved ones, which can happen during a divorce. Take time to try something new. You'll meet new people and find something new to enjoy as well.

4. Keep in touch with friends

Friends are a good source of support during a divorce. They can listen to you, help you take your mind off your divorce and otherwise be there to give you peace of mind.

5. Think about mediation early on

Mediators help you and your ex work through problems in a calm manner. Consider using mediation early on, so you can handle all problems that come up as quickly and calmly as possible.

These are five things to consider when you're going through a divorce. Reducing stress helps you handle the divorce better and get back to the kind of life you want to live more quickly.
