There are many ways that a new single father needs to take care of their health. If you are finding yourself facing divorce all of a sudden, it can feel extremely overwhelming. It can almost seem like a balancing act as you attempt to keep the family organized and functioning. This may mean a lot of time alone, followed by time with the kids where there is no time for yourself. Without finding a routine of some sort, it is easy to fall into the habit of always looking to the future instead of living in the present. Before, another adult lived in the home, which made planning and following a routine more fluid, but now you each must find one that works individually.
Your time with your children will be more cherished, but you may find yourself dreading when it is time to go back to Mom’s house. Feelings of jealousy over missing out on important moments and possibly your ex spouse dating again can arise. Over time these feelings will hopefully go away or at least subside enough to allow you to move on too.
