Getting over an ex can often take longer than we’d like. Life is short, so try not to get caught up in an endless loop of sadness. Follow our steps to getting back on track in no time.
Delete all traces
The more reminders you have of your ex, the easier it is to wallow in the past. Delete his number from your phone if you haven’t already and drop him as a Facebook friend. We know it’s hard, but the more tempted you are to look him up online or text him, the worse you’re going to feel. You should also get rid of anything he has left at your place like a toothbrush, any clothing and even gifts he has given you that send you into a tailspin whenever you see them.
Have a weekend away
If you can afford a weekend getaway, go for it. Grab your BFF or a few of your best pals, rent a car and hit the road. Whether it’s a cottage trip, spa weekend or a few nights at a bed and breakfast, getting out of town can go a long way towards helping you get over your ex.
Dealing with a breakup can cause even the strongest among us to plummet into a rut. To avoid the trap of self-pity, take some time to refresh yourself and your space. Hit the spa, get a haircut and buy a brand new outfit. Then spice up your space to symbolize your step in a new direction. Repaint the bedroom, rearrange furniture or add some new accessories to give your home a new, post-breakup look.
