Don’t let your thoughts or feelings consume you. Release them by writing them down in a journal. A break up is bound to hurt, you do not have to pretend these feelings do not exist!
2. Be Active
Get outside and go for a run! Go take a nice walk by the beach. Lower your stress levels by getting your endorphins pumping. Your body will thank you!
3. Eat Right
Maintain a healthy, balanced diet post-breakup. Don’t limit your food intake, or overindulge in ice cream and chocolate. Eating healthy is a mood booster and a body booster!
4. Talk it Out
Don’t hold it all inside! Talk to a friend, parent, relative, or professional. You are not the first person going through a break up, and will not be the last. Your system of support knows you best, don’t hesitate to utilize them!
5. Treat Others
Giving back is a wonderful feeling. Keep track of daily random acts of kindness you perform. It is hard not to smile when you are responsible for the smile on someone else’s face!
