Divorce is an emotional experience and, understandably, you may have some trouble focusing on work as you navigate this process. However, life goes on and you cannot jeopardize your job during this critical moment in your life. To help keep you focused on-the-job while you dissolve your marriage, we put together some tips that will keep your mind from wandering.
Keeping Your Mind on the Task at Hand
Staying focused at work at all times can be difficult even when life is not in a state of chaos, so if you find your productivity wavering now that your marriage is over, it should not come as a surprise to you. Thankfully, there are ways to stay focused, so you can avoid running into problems at work.
Here are some tips that will help you at work during your divorce:
- Do not tell all of your co-workers about the divorce. The more people you tell, the more you will continue to hear about it and, although your co-workers may mean well when they ask about your divorce, having to constantly discuss it will be distracting. Limit the number of people you choose to tell and ensure they know not to tell others about it.
- Give your workspace a makeover. If you have pictures of your spouse or other items that remind you of your marriage on your desk or workspace, now is the time to either get rid of them or take them home. They may seem small, but these little mementos will distract you from your work.
- You will need to make time to healthily cope with the end of your marriage, but while you are working, it is crucial to keep your mind off that delicate subject. If necessary, take on more tasks to stay occupied. It may seem like a cliché to plunge yourself into your work during this difficult time, but it can help.
- Find healthy outlets for your stress when you are not at work. Consider therapy or find a new hobby that you enjoy. The better you care for yourself off-the-clock, the better you can perform your job duties.
Divorce is rarely easy and you will undoubtedly experience some personal difficulties, but if you put some of these tips into practice, you may be able to overcome them.
