Winter-Spring 2015 issue of Divorce Magazine
TORONTO, ON — The Winter-Spring 2015 issue of Divorce Magazine is now available for free download here.
The cover story, “Do the Next Right Thing”, was written by Frank O’Dea. The victim of abuse as a teenager, at age 24, O’Dea was a homeless alcoholic. But he was able to turn his life around, rising from the streets to become the co-founder of The Second Cup and other businesses, a motivational speaker, and author. “Fight or flight works well when the choice is either eat or be eaten, but not so well when the threat is essentially emotional – and that’s at the core of most personal crises we encounter,” O’Dea points out. “Too often, your intelligence is overwhelmed by your emotions in the middle of a personal crisis. When neither flight nor fight is appropriate, you are intellectually bereft. You become, in effect, the dumbest person in the room.” O’Dea’s article coaches readers to “identify the next right thing to do” rather than leaping into action without adequate reflection.
In this issue, readers will find articles on the legal, financial, emotional, and practical issues of separation and divorce – as well as resources for finding the right divorce professionals for their unique situations. There’s more than one way to get divorced, and the process you choose can have a big impact on the final terms of your divorce. “Choosing a Divorce Process” and “Mediation for Self Preservation” offer insights into the alternatives. For readers who have chosen the litigation route to resolve their issues, “How to Work with Your Divorce Lawyer” offers tips to save time, money, and aggravation – and get the best possible outcome during divorce.
Money is often a major issue during divorce. With some preparation and planning, divorcing individuals can protect their interests and take charge of their financial futures. “Understanding the Financial Impact of Divorce” and “Creating Positive Cash Flow during Divorce” help readers understand their current situation as well as find the money to fuel their dreams post-divorce.
When families separate, many parents quickly start dating again. “New Partners, Stepparents, and Remarriage” offers useful information on how to help children of divorce adjust to becoming part of a stepfamily. Before they’re ready to start dating again, however, separated parents need to learn how to co-parent their children effectively. In “Ten Tips for Divorcing Parents”, a family lawyer provides advice drawn from years of practice to help parent cope with this difficult time.
Separation and divorce are some of the most stressful times a person will ever experience. The negative stress arising from a family break-up can effect people psychologically, but ongoing chronic stress can also hurt them physically. “It’s all about the brain-gut connection,” says Certified Nutrition Practitioner Trish Krause, “so choosing the right foods during divorce proceedings will help separated people feel better and keep them clear-headed – which will enable them to make better decisions.” In her article, “Feed Your Body and Soul”, Krause offers four fast tips to help people cope with divorce-related stress.
