New Year's resolutions are often the butt of people’s jokes, especially when they’re centered around something vain. However, it’s been a difficult year for you, and there’s a lot of emotion involved in everything you do right now. If you’ve just settled a divorce with a family lawyer, especially here in Denver, you’re gearing up for the first New Years where you’ll actually be setting some real goals to improve your emotional and mental wellbeing. Let’s help with that. Anger Issues and Solutions One of the most self-deprecating things that anyone can do is show their teeth, or flaunt anger. It shows irrationality, and that it can get the best of you no matter what. Even if it’s just internal right now, anger shows on your face and in your body language.

You’ve gone through everything with your divorce lawyer, and the ink has dried, but you want to keep Christmas fun and festive for the kids. These are three of our favorite dishes to keep Christmas dinner light-hearted, fun, and filled with enough surprises to keep the kids happy and entertained. Chocolate Crinkles Just about everybody likes chocolate, and everybody makes desserts around the holiday season—it’s a fun project you can do with the kids because you can make it messy. These chocolate cookies have to be chilled in the fridge before you actually pop them in the oven, so take a minute the day before they’re coming to your home and set up the dough. The fun part is dunking them in powdered sugar before you bake them—there’s no better way to start off their time with mom/dad than a sugar fight. Tangy Honey Glazed Ham Thanksgiving is for turkey;…

It isn’t just your first Christmas after a divorce that’s tough; it’s all of them, at least while the kids are still little. You’ve gone through a family law attorney, and all that is settled, but that first one is definitely a doozy—nothing has emotions on high more than spending the first Christmas apart from your partner, and the kids feel that impact all around. The hardest, and the most necessary goal is to keep Christmas about your kids above all else. Divorces are difficult on everybody; let them have Christmas time to remember that they’re still thankful to have two parents. Your Tone Implies a Lot When it’s just you and the kids, or when they’re going to be spending time at the other parents’ home, there’s a common thread between both households—resentment. It’s not an easy thing to get over, but you have to remember not to voice…

It’s a touchy subject that not a lot of people know what to do about. Domestic violence consistently rears its ugly head. Nobody has ever said, “Well, I saw that coming.” It’s always a shock, a surprise, and it’s never tolerable. The secondhand crime to domestic violence is witnessing it, and not doing anything, Over 20,000 phone calls are placed to domestic abuse hotlines every single day in the United States; it’s happening all around us, whether we’re aware or not. Don’t Ignore It When you see domestic violence in public, you can’t ignore it. In some social experiments, where domestic violence is incited to garner a public reaction, individuals will shout loudly and point out the attacker, bringing the crowd in on them to get him/her off of their partner. Ignoring it doesn’t mean you have to wedge yourself between the two of them, either. Report It to the…
