The first tip in the guide is to let go of your relationship expectations and pressures by practicing non-attachment. Remember: your pain and your thoughts are not you. Other advice revolves around staying in the present, sending loving thoughts and practicing compassion, acting with integrity, and recognizing that everything is impermanent - and as such will pass. Ivan Steele Law’s mindfulness tips to help readers follow these Buddhist divorce precepts include breath-focused meditation, loving-kindness meditation, and reflections on the nature of change.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), practicing mindfulness can increase awareness and concentration by helping an individual live in the moment. The NIH further states that mindfulness can alleviate anxiety, reduce depression, and improve sleep. The mindfulness divorce guide released by Ivan Steele Law was authored to help divorcees deal with their situation by staying in the present.

The final two tips in the guide are more philosophy-based. The first is to practice the Buddhist middle way by avoiding extreme emotions during a divorce. The second is to internalize the fact that suffering is a part of life. By understanding this divorcees can choose to glean wisdom from their separation instead of being wounded.
