Posted: Updated:

Studies have shown that divorce is one of life's most stressful events. In order to ease some of the anxiety and heartache that often accompanies a split, many people -- both average Joes and celebrities alike -- turn to healthy de-stressors such as yoga and meditation to cope.

Yoga is extolled as a three-in-one workout for the mind, body, and spirit.

Meditation -- which can be done through yoga or practiced on its own -- is also known to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, improve concentration and strengthen the immune system.
