5 Things you must do after a break up

So things didn’t work out between you and him. After days or weeks of you just trying to hold all your feelings in, you finally let it all out and it ended in you two parting ways. Breakups never leave a good feeling, especially if you truly loved your partner. And it could prove difficult to completely get over him because exes have a way of rooting themselves in our memories. You need to separate yourself from those feelings and this article will show you exactly how to get your mojo back after a tough breakup.

CUT HIM OFF!

Stalking your ex would not bring him back, so you should stop! This is the grand rule that should be followed after any breakup. It would be best if you kept your distance, both physically and emotionally. Take out all his stuff that’s still in your apartment, take his picture off of your phone screen and even remove the heart emoji from beside his contact on your phone. And if you want to go for a full cleanse, you could unfollow him on all social media platforms. Although this seems to attract more unwarranted attention than it should, it could also give you a clean break as you wouldn’t need to see every single post he makes. Cutting the ties from him puts you on a faster path to healing your heartbreak.

Do not bottle up your emotions

You could decide to torture yourself for years over these feelings or just let them all out in one fell swoop. All the pent-up emotions that you have been going through for days, weeks, months, or even years should be pent up no longer. You are finally free of the shackles holding you down, so laugh if you want to, or cry if you need to. A nice bottle of wine could help loosen you up but drink in moderation. You do not want to end up in a hospital on account of drinking over your ex. It is a good idea to have a trusted friend around you while you let it all out. However, be careful with having a one night stand, don't go all sad and desperate and create an emotional mistake.

Take care of your body

After you have de-toxified your mind, it is time to do the same for your body. You could gift yourself a day at the spa or stay home and give yourself a full-body cleanse. Usually, during a relationship, people let their physical appearance diminish. Use this time after the breakup to give yourself a big physical boost and look better than you have ever looked. The best way to get rid of the leftover emotions would be by exercising and working it all out of your body through sweat. Get yourself looking so good that if your ex does see you again, he would seriously regret breaking up with you.

Re-discover yourself

You being in a relationship that ended up not working must seem like a waste of time, and in essence, it was. Being in that relationship might have helped you, in some ways, in becoming the person you are now. But that does not mean you would not have become this person even without the relationship. Now that you are free, you can go out and do what you have always wanted to do but couldn’t because of the relationship. Go clubbing, make some crazy new food, or even take a trip to a foreign land. No matter what you do, make sure it is engineered towards making you re-discover your interests and passions.

Do not rush into a new relationship

This is something that a lot of people do and end up regretting. After a breakup, you must not immediately rush into another relationship because this could lead to a quick double dose of heartbreak. Instead, take your time and follow the steps listed above to get yourself back in the right frame, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Do not become a pinball, jumping from one relationship to another, but look to steady yourself first before you then begin to plan on dating again.

Dealing with a breakup is never easy, but as long as you have good people surrounding you, and this article guiding you in your recovery, you will be back on the right track in no time.
