If you want to survive the process from start to finish, technology might be a good place to start.

These handy mobile apps can help you stay sane while you’re going through a divorce.

It’s hard to know how to talk to loved ones, whether you need help coping with your grief or getting through your divorce.

6. I Am – Daily Affirmations

Affirmations are positive, powerful statements that encourage you to stop negative thoughts and inspire optimistic thoughts. In the midst of a divorce, these positive affirmations can give you the strength to carry on.

I Am is a minimalist app that’s simple to use and easy to understand, and it doesn’t bother you with constant notifications unless you want them to.

7. Break Rx

Are you struggling to get by after your divorce? There is no immediate cure for the pain, but there are ways to heal and move on. The RX Breakup app is basically a 30-day guide with a ton of useful tools and information.

Each day the app tackles a different topic, starting with weaning on the first day. The app then explains what’s going on, what to write, what to do, and what else you can do. The only downside to Rx Breakup is that you have to start on the first day of your breakup and cannot move on to another day. Unfortunately, this aspect does not work well for people who are at a different stage of their separation journey.
