Breakups are no joke. It is a painful experience no one wishes to experience. Here are ten simple ‘must do’s’ after a breakup.
Pump your mood with a class at your gym, and then switch to yoga at night to help you relax. While doing all these, consider the amazing body you'll have in a few short weeks.
Indulge at the makeup counter
Updating your look helps you feel sexy and desirable again. While the perfect smoky eye may not heal a broken heart, it's bound to keep you from crying for a while.
Obsess over the breakup…for 15 minutes
Obsessing over something is actually the natural way our brains deal with change so let yourself freak out for a little bit. Scheduling times when you're allowed to think about it in a healthy way will let you gain control over the situation.
Go on a 30-day cleanse
No, we're not talking about a crazy juice diet. Instead of swearing off solid foods, vow to not have any contact with your ex for 30 days. You'll get over it faster with zero contact. This in a way is to prove to yourself that you can survive without him.
Spying on him will only make things worse, so cover all of your tech bases. Unfriend him, unfollow him, and delete him from your chat list and other social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. You don't want a pop-up reminder of your relationship every time you sign on.
Let your friends know what you need
Whether you want to go out for a round of cocktails or are swearing off men until 2013, make sure your friends are clear on how they can help you deal with the situation.
Boost your ego
Do something a little scary that you've never done before. This will give you a confidence kick like no other. Completing just one difficult task will help remind you that you're pretty damn awesome.
Have face time with a furry friend
Research shows that interacting with animals can help you heal emotionally. So pay more attention to the pet you have at home.
Take a fabulous trip
Most at times, you have this urge to finally travel after a big breakup. But the key is not to go too soon. You need to give yourself time to feel like crap before you can truly enjoy a getaway.
