Simple Steps for Getting Through a Breakup

Break-ups are tough! They can leave people heartbroken and confused about the relationship or ever dating again. Usually one person comes out on top, while the other feels left in the dirt, kicked on and upset. I thought about ways people can work to get over their past break up.
We all know the common ones for girls, cut your hair, change your makeup, and find a new hobby. What about more inclusive options that we have?
I found a site that says stripping your sheets after a break-up can help you get over the loss. Buying new bedding can help boost your energy and keep the room fresh! New set of sheets for new memories!
You could also start working out! Pump up with a class at the gym or a walk with some friends. Working out can boost your energy, and your confidence! It may also help you relax and process the break-up. Working out leads up to changing your look; updating your look can help you feel sexy and desirable again, so splurge a little. Maybe you have had your eye on something specific but your partner said no; well go for it! Another study showed obsessing over the break-up for fifteen minutes can help you get over it. I was surprised by this, but your brain needs to deal with the change, so focusing on it, freaking out a little bit and then getting over it, will help you feel in control of the situation.
A recent option we have is to use social media to spy on our exes, if we delete our exes from our social media sites, delete their numbers and steer clear of them for a while, it will be easier for us to get over them. Friends are good with helping to get over things, so hang out with them! Utilize the groups desire to go out, dance, eat, or just play video games. The more time you spend with your friends, the less time you will be thinking about your ex.
A classic idea is to do something you have never done before! Go sky diving, snowboarding, speed dating, or climb the Sand Dunes. Get out there and do something you have never tried before.  It might be scary, but it will give you confidence and reassurance in yourself and your abilities.
I love the option of taking a trip, but don’t always have the money to afford it. If you can’t afford to get away, try a road trip with friends. A few simple hours a day can be a wonderful get away. This can help refresh you and get your mind focused on other things. The last word of advice I have is to find a furry friend!
Spending time with animals can help you put your energy into something productive. We can’t have animals on the campus, but you could try volunteering at the humane society or a local animal shelter.
You can move on! Just take time and get to know yourself again! is powered by WordPress µ | Spam prevention powered by Akismet
