Staying positive after a difficult break up is challenging. You might not even want to do the things you usually do anymore. You invested a lot in the relationship, and it didn’t end the way you wanted. It’s natural for you to feel bad, but it’s not an excuse to be unhealthy. You can still find means to stay healthy even if you’re going through a difficult emotional time.
Express how you feel to someone else
Your mental health is essential. You feel vulnerable right now, and the best way to make you feel better is to express how you feel to another person. If you don’t have someone to share your feelings with, you can write how you feel. The point is that you need to express yourself and not keep everything inside.
Don’t stress eat
Stress eating is common for people who broke up with someone recently. The problem is that stress eating doesn’t make you feel better. It will only lead to terrible effects on your health. Always be cautious with what you eat even if you don’t feel good anymore.
Keep doing the things you love
Just because someone broke your heart doesn’t mean you’re worthless. It also doesn’t mean that you can longer do the things you love. Even if you did some of these activities together, you should still keep doing them alone. Don’t let someone else take that happiness away from you.
Some people want to prove that they are better after the breakup. You should also have that mentality. Exercise regularly, and stay fit. Show to your ex that you managed to look good despite what happened to your relationship. Besides, if you intend to be in a relationship again, you have even more reason to stay fit. You want to be attractive to someone else.
Take a break
You’ve been through a lot because of the relationship. You even worked hard to keep things going. Now that it’s over, you have a chance to rest. Focus on yourself and how to be happy despite being alone. You can even invest in a new steam shower if you want to relax at home. You don’t need to go to a spa to relax all the time. You can transform your house into a mini spa. You feel terrible right now, but things will change once you get enough rest.
Never put yourself down
Your ex said lots of harsh words to you during the breakup. It doesn’t mean that all of them are true. Never put yourself down because someone else said bad things about you. You can consider them to improve yourself, but you should always believe in your good qualities.
Eventually, you’ll find someone who will love you and make you feel good. You deserve someone who will make you smile again. For now, you have to learn how to be strong and independent. It’s also helpful if you face another difficult break up in the future. You already know what to do.
