As I shared with her:
“Negative emotions that accompany divorce, like sadness, anxiety, worry, and feeling overwhelmed, are a type of stress for the body. And chronic stress can adversely affect every single organ system in your body.”

There is good news, though. You can lower that stress by being proactive in taking steps to reduce your tension.
