In this video, relationship coach and break up expert, Brad Browning shares tips and insights on how to get over your breakup and get on with your life quickly.
Accept the Reality of the Situation
All breakups, regardless of circumstance, are painful to some degree. There is no quick fix to make your heartache disappear overnight. Accept that your ex is no longer a focal point of your life. Now is the time to let out your emotions and come to grips with your life now that your relationship has ended.
In the early stages after a break up, it’s a good idea to cut off all contact with your ex. This allow you the time and space you need to work through your emotions privately. Try not to overanalyze the situation. Don’t wrack your brain for answers as to why the relationship ended. Instead, concentrating on just getting control of your emotions.
Removing physical and visible reminders of your ex will speed up the recovery process. Go through your house and put away photos and gifts. Make sure you hide your ex’s updates on social media sites. This makes sure you aren’t reminded of your ex every time you log on. If you are really struggling with self-control and you can’t stop yourself from texting or contacting your ex, delete their contact information from your phone.
Stay Busy and keep yourself occupied at all times. Doing nothing gives your mind a chance to wonder and may bring undo heartache on yourself. Staying busy will help keep your mind off the breakup. Lean on your friends and family if you can. Even if it’s the last thing you feel like doing, being social is one of the best ways to get over a breakup. Maintain healthy lifestyle habits. Exercise and healthy eating can help you feel better and remove stress from your body and your mind.
Find Someone New
The best way to recover from a break up is to find someone new. At this point you might not be interested in dates, but if you force yourself to get out there again, the hard and painful breakup feelings will start to disappear when you meet new people.
If you do happen to talk to your ex as the result of accidental encounter or on purpose, try and stay positive. Keep things cordial and light. Being mean or bitter will only lead to more problems and arguments, which will make you feel worse.
If you are struggling with depression and heartache, remember that every day that passes is another step towards fully recovering.
