So you thought he was the one, but it wasn’t meant to be. Breakups suck, but there comes a time where you need to pick up the pieces and move forward. Here’s a few ideas to get you started:
Get a new ˜do
It’s a simple truth: change your look, change your outlook. Trying a new cut, colour, or style will make you feel like a brand new woman.
Take a class
Take advantage of those free evenings to try something that will invigorate you. Whether cooking classes, art classes, even improve comedy, you are sure to get positive vibes from a new challenge.
Reconnect with a friend
Friendships can simmer on the back-burner while the romance is hot. Use your newfound singledom to reconnect with an old pal. Make plans for an activity you used to share, and be reminded of the good old days before Mr. Wrong.
Read an uplifting memoir
Do some research on a past or present woman who inspires you. Not only will she motivate you to focus on the bigger picture, but she will likely have some pearls of wisdom on relationships as well.
Get a little sunshine
Even a few minutes of sunshine can do wonders for your mood. Get off the couch and spend some time relaxing at a park or on the beach.
Make a list
Writing is a great outlet for your emotions. Why not make a list of the good and bad in your recent relationship? It will help you to sort through your feelings when you are ready to move on.
Your first instinct will be to go nuts at the mall. Harness your inner shopaholic and select one item to symbolize this new stage in your life. You will have a boost of confidence every time you wear it.
Plan a getaway
Planning a getaway will give you something to look forward to, as well as an opportunity to disconnect. This can entail anything from a five-star resort to a weekend PJ party at home with your best friend.
Create a killer playlist of girl-power tunes and dance your cares away in your bedroom or on a big jog around your neighbourhood.
Get your fresh start with some fresh new surroundings. Add different furniture, paint colours or decorative items to your pad. The project will give you something positive to work toward.
