7 Tips to Help Heal a Broken Heart

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.

1 Time
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.
For example:
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.

3 Allowing
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.

Top 10 Rules for First Dates

First dates can be nerve racking and exciting with the idea of meeting someone new for the first time, especially if you don’t know much about the other person.
Below are 10 tips to help with any first date

1 Confirm it’s an Actual Date
Yes it sounds like common sense, but you don’t want to turn up to a date without properly confirming it first.
What I mean by this is date, time and location.
I had a friend who said they were stood up when really the date was never set in stone in the first place!

2 Dress Appropriately
There’s no point wearing 10 inch heels when you’re going on a date such as bowling.
The idea for a first date is to be as comfortable as possible.

3 Personal Hygiene
This one should be self-explanatory because first impressions count.
It takes on average 2 seconds for you to judge someone when you first meet them.

4 Bring Money
Make sure you have money with you, don’t assume your date will pay for everything.

5 Keep it Simple
First dates can be an exciting time to meet someone new, but you don’t have to go bungee jumping or anything extreme because you don’t want to put too much effort into something that may not last!

6 Don’t Overdo the Conversation
Talking about where you grew up , what you do for a living and your hobbies are great, but listing all your previous relationships and reasons why you broke up with them should not be a part of the conversation!.

7 Keep your Phone on Silent
Unless you’re waiting for an important phone call, put your phone away.
There’s nothing worse than being on a date with someone and the whole time you’re with them their phone is constantly ringing, or even worse they keep answering the calls.

8 Do Not Get Drunk!
You could end up embarrassing yourself if you drink too much, and like I said before, it only takes two seconds for someone to judge you based on a first meeting!

9 Meet Up in a Public Place
This is especially if you are meeting someone you’ve met through an online dating site. You want to feel safe and relaxed, so choose a busy location

10 Have Fun!
Dating can be a really exciting so smile, laugh and enjoy your date!
