A great deal of research has been directed at examining the way that stress affects the human mind and body. Researchers agree that going through a significantly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one or a high asset divorce, can cause a drastic spike in stress levels. That can have a number of negative impacts on daily function, which is why it is so important for Florida residents to take steps to control stress.

Recent research suggests that chronic stress can cause premature aging, even on a cellular level. In addition, high levels of stress can lead to difficulty sleeping, changes in appetite and problems connecting with others in social settings. All of these things can make it hard to enjoy life, and also hard to concentrate on the task at hand, which is critical to moving through a high asset divorce.

With the right degree of motivation and effort, spouses can take action to lower their stress levels and control the way that they react to stress triggers. A great place to begin is to stay on top of divorce developments and to take an active role in the process of ending the marriage. It can be tempting to sit back and allow one's attorney to handle the majority of the process, but doing so can cause spouses to feel out of control and lead to increased levels of divorce-related anxiety.

Spouses may also want to consider working with a therapist as they move through the divorce process. A therapist can provide much-needed support throughout the process, as well as suggest appropriate coping mechanisms to help reduce stress. A high asset divorce is a stressful event in a Florida resident's life, but it is important to realize that it is a process with a distinct beginning, middle and end. It will pass, and maintaining solid physical and mental health throughout the process will make it easier to enjoy what lies ahead.
