Preventing divorce from hurting job performance

When a couple in Virginia decides to get a divorce, a majority of their attention will be turned to important decisions like where they will live, how time will be split between children and whether or not modifications need to be made to financial assets. Throughout the course of making such critical decisions, it may be difficult for couples to focus on their career. Distractions, emotional turmoil and anxiety can create difficulties at work and result in inefficient job performance. 

According to Modern DC Business, one of the best things that people can do is to rely on the help of their colleagues to complete tasks the right way. If focus is a bit of an issue, they may consider asking someone to double check their work before submitting it to a superior. If people are in management positions, their efforts to hire top talent can help alleviate some of the day-to-day pressures associated with their job. 

Other things they can do include the following:

  • They can seek professional support from therapists or counselors.
  • They can take time away to reset and regain focus before returning to work. 
  • They can create boundaries and make a commitment to not take care of any divorce-related responsibilities while at work. 

According to information released by the American Psychological Association, nearly half of all marriages in the United States end in a divorce. Unfortunately, with an increase in the number of marriages for a person, the risk of getting divorced again is also much higher.
