Love is not always that beautiful journey that you’ve been dreaming about. It brings about hardships too. Breakup is the term quoted to a relationship that comes to a halt. Trust me they’re not all that good to deal with. People who’ve been through it know it better. But then again grieving over your lost love is understandable up to a limit, once you’ve exceeded that limit it’s high time you get over it. You ought to really start getting on with your life and come out of that doomed stage that you’ve been left in. Well, here are some highly effective strategies to help you out…
10. CUT ALL CONTACT WITH YOUR EX
The primary and also the most important point to be kept in mind is to forget the past. Breakups are not that big a deal. They happen now and then. What you need to do is to cut all contact with your ex. The policy of still staying casual friends makes things worse. To finally move on in life you need to detach yourself from him/her. It’s hard but then again imperative.
9. HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS
Friends have always and will continue to be with you in your ups and downs. From your first crush to your first kiss, they’ve made sure to pull your leg. Well, now that you’re going through a hard time, you need their company to calm you down and get you back on track. So hang out with them and talk it out. With time things will gradually come back to normal.
8. KEEP YOURSELF BUSY
The human brain is such that whenever it sits ideal, it tends to focus on all the bad things going around and then you sit and wail over it. To avoid such a situation, start keeping yourself busy or rather involved in something or the other. Be it your studies or your job or just a random hobby, don’t sit ideal. Don’t give yourself a chance to sit and brood over gone things.
Meditation has helped people a great deal in getting over with emotional pain. It relaxes your body and makes you strong enough to deal with anything that comes your way. It makes you a rather more patient person. Therefore resort to meditation to heal your internal pain.
6. START DATING AGAIN
After all the emotional trauma that you’ve been through, it’s not justified for you to stop yourself from dating. Breakup does not mean a stop to your love life. So set your wings free and don’t hesitate from falling in love all over again. The sooner it happens the faster you’ll forget the past.
5. CRY IT OUT
Keeping a whole lot of emotions packed in your heart can lead to tremendous pain. They need to be poured out in some way or the other. Don’t shy away from letting it happen in the form of tears. Nobody is telling you to do it out in the public. Do it when you’re in bed or in front of any loved on of yours who can even console you at the same time. You’ll feel a lot better.
4. HIDE AWAY ALL THE PAST MEMORIES
All the little gifts, messages or any other that are related to your ex need to be hidden away from you because all of these take you back to your past. So gather all the lovable cards and gifts and keep them in such a place where they do not catch your eye. And also don’t save any written or audio messages because all that they do is hurt you more. Eat the chocolates and burn the pictures. Shut your brain to any memory of the past!!!
3. DO NOT KEEP ANY HOPE
The main reason why people don’t seem to get over a breakup is the presence of hope. No matter how terrible the relationship had been, they never seem to give up. Your mind will never trigger the recovery process until it makes sure that there is no coming back. Therefore to recover faster you have to kill all hopes and make sure that this is the end.
2. FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVITIES
Do not sit around and think of all the good memories that have gone away. Instead ponder over the negativities that have led you to breakup. The negative aspects of your ex are something to think about. This will help you in realizing that this was meant for the best and you’ll start respecting your decision.
1. GET PLENTY OF SLEEP
There’s nothing more refreshing for your body than a good amount of sleep. It’s obvious that getting proper sleep is not easy when you’re having a hard time but try your level best. Lie down and shut your eyes for a long time even if there are numerous thoughts disturbing you. Read a book or watch a movie but force yourself to feel sleepy. Once you’ve finally had a good sleep, notice the change that it’ll bring about.
