A high asset divorce shouldn't ruin your health

Ending an Illinois marriage is enough of a challenge without risking serious health consequences. Unfortunately, however, researchers believe that divorce can take a big toll on health and wellness. In fact, people who go through divorce are more likely to smoke or lead sedentary lifestyles as compared to those who are married or single. It's important to avoid letting a high asset divorce impact one's health and wellness. 

Social scientists believe that spouses often act as moderating forces, helping their partner avoid unhealthy practices like smoking or avoiding the gym. When a divorce suddenly removes that influence from one's life, it can be easy to backslide into negative health habits. A high asset divorce also places a great deal of strain on many spouses, which further complicates a healthy lifestyle. 

The best way to avoid becoming part of this troubling statistic is by taking stock of current health and identifying areas where improvements can be made. That might involve quitting smoking, boosting nutrition, shedding a few pounds or just becoming more active on a daily basis. Incorporating these goals into one's daily schedule can make a world of difference. 

In fact, it may even be possible to emerge from a  divorce with renewed health and wellness, rather than taking a hit in those departments. That can provide Illinois residents with more energy and stamina to enjoy life as a single person. A high asset divorce may be stressful, but it is also the gateway to a new life and a chance to redefine one's health and wellness.
