Tips to Get Over a Breakup
No contact with the ex-partner
Block that number now! If you have any way of contacting them then there’s a high likelihood you will in the times you’re missing them. Remember, you broke up for a reason, so you’ll want to cut contact off completely.
Breakups can affect your mental health and you may begin to think irrationally. Speaking to a therapist can help to make sense of your emotions which can be a huge boost to this process.
Writing down how you feel is a great way to let go of emotions and also rationalise your thinking. Take time to note down how you feel, and it may just help you out.
Surround yourself with people who love you
Just because you’ve lost a significant other doesn’t mean you’re loveless. Spending quality time with family and friends can fill the void left behind. Plus, you might just prefer hanging out with them anyway!
Take care of your physical wellbeing
Focus on yourself, and you’ll reap the rewards after a breakup. Hit the gym, get plenty of rest, and eat well to feel like the best version of yourself. Be sure to also dress confidently by wearing fashionable items like black tights to take your self-love to a whole new level.
Try a new hobby
Trying a new hobby is a great way to spend your new free time. It gives you something new to focus on that isn’t the breakup, and this can also be a wonderful way to meet new people too.
Nothing cheers anyone up more than treating themselves. Spend those wages on great street food, nice clothes, and new items to make your home look fabulous—or on exploring London. Make sure you’re feeling even better.
