How To: Beat The Break Up Blues

It’s the end of something. While you may not see it now, it’s the beginning of something else.

While you recuperate and nurse your relationship wounds, stay busy and do things for you. Don’t ignore your feelings, but don’t sulk in them either or you’ll eventually feel like you’re stuck in mud.

Invest In You
You probably exerted a lot of energy and time to make things work to no avail, so now it’s time for you to be selfish. Think of what you want. What makes you happy? What have you wanted to do but never had the time for it? Take a class of some sort or just start reading about something that interests you. It’s time for you to love and date yourself. No, it’s not a sad thought. Immerse yourself in you. Give yourself some loving.

Work It Out
Take your frustrations to the gym. Work out your issues by working out. Not only will you be avoiding emotional shopping, you’ll also start looking better and more fit…sexier. You’ll also get a kick of endorphins from working out, helping you become happier.

Friends, Friends, Friends

Spend time with those who make you feel good and love you. Go out with them. Join them for dinner or a simple activity. Surround yourself with those who help you feel stable and invest time in you. Friends help remind you of the good things you have in life and how to enjoy it. Relate to them and ask them for advice. Have fun with friends.

Open Up Your World

Step out of your comfort zone and try new things. Try a new hobby. Go to new places. Meet new people. Get back that passion for life and new things. Who knows you might meet someone new or discover something new about yourself.

Work On Moving Forward 

Try to make a concentrated effort to control your thoughts. Remind yourself why things didn’t work out and why you need to move forward. Work on creating peace in your heart on the matter. If you find yourself being nostalgic, try to think about something else. Go do something that makes you happy because you deserve it.
