Having your heart shattered to pieces can be one of the worst experiences in life, specifically when it comes to the end of a relationship.
Whatever the reason was for the breakup, it can be hard for both people involved. Maybe you can’t stop thinking about your ex or you keep reliving a terrible moment over and over in your head, making you feel worse.
Below are 7 tips to help you mend your broken heart.
Give yourself time to heal, especially if it was a bad breakup, you’re not going to simply stop your feelings overnight, but as time goes on, the further away you will be from your current situation and the better you will feel.
2 Make a list
List the pros and cons of the person who broke your heart.
Pro- They helped you pay the bills
Con -They put you down a lot
You’ll soon realise if the cons outweigh the pros, then you are better off without this person anyway.
Allow yourself to live in the moment of heartache. Don’t pretend everything is ok when it’s not. Accept the feelings which come with being sad, they will soon pass and you will start to feel like yourself again.
4 Speak Up
Talk about your heartache with someone you are closest to. This will be therapy for you whilst you are going through the pain as you will have someone to listen to you while you let it all out and you may find their views and opinions helpful and encouraging to you.
5 Get Out
Go into nature, whether it be a walk in your local park or the countryside, studies have shown that being out in nature can make you feel relaxed and positive.
6 Do Something You Love
What things did you love doing before you met this person? It could be reading or socialising. Do activities you know you’ll enjoy to lift your spirits and start making you feel whole again.
7 Listen to Music
Please don’t listen to songs about having a broken heart, listen to more uplifting songs, your favourite songs which make you feel good about yourself and life in general.
