  1. Our emotional coping strategies gravitate inward while men look outward. We work on getting our “emotional ducks in a row”, right so we can focus on the future.
  2. Women are reticent to turn to outwardly distractions with drugs, alcohol or other tendencies unlike their genetic counterpart.
  3. We seek out new experiences after divorce, experiences that enrich our lives and give us a sense of hope for the future.
  4. We prioritize our needs by investing in yoga, meditation, a new hobby or just investing more quality time with kids, pets, family or our jobs.
