Volunteering and exercise are two things that are never a bad use of your time. If you volunteer for lots of different events you'll see all different sides of your community; if you stick with one main volunteer activity you'll meet some new people who have nothing to do with your old (pre-divorce) life. Exercise: even if you don't want to do it, get out and do it anyway. This doesn't have to mean joining a gym or going to classes: I started biking everywhere, even in winter, and I think it saved my sanity during a few stressful times. Plus, you get to look at your newly fit self in the mirror and think "hmm, not too bad!".
