When you are faced with spending a year separated from your spouse it’s important to remain positive. There are lots of things to stress about but taking a moment to focus on something positive can help.
Many military spouses choose to focus the nights they cannot sleep on special projects. Some of us start businesses or write books. All these things are great and can help pass the sleepless nights.
Don’t forget in the middle of that project to take time for rest and self care! It may just be reading poetry as you enjoy a hot cup of tea before bed. Whatever it is it should help you focus on the positive.
