In the words of Burna Boy; Na everybody go chop breakfast. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re feeling pretty sad right now, and maybe even a little confused because you have been served hot (or cold) breakfast and you can’t seem to get over the breakup, dearly beloved, we have all been there.
A breakup is a painful experience. It’s easy to feel like you’re never going to be happy again, and that things will never get better. But we’re here to tell you: there is light at the end of this tunnel! And it is possible to get over a breakup faster than you think.
We know that breakups can be tough to deal with. But we also know that they don’t have to be! Here’s how to get over a breakup fast:
Accept that it is over.
The first step is to accept the fact that it’s over. You can’t move forward until you do this—and it’s not easy! But once it’s done, the rest of these steps will be much easier to follow through with.
Take care of yourself
First and foremost, take care of yourself. This means eating well, getting enough sleep, and doing things that make you feel good about yourself (like going for a run or getting your nails done). When we’re feeling good about ourselves and looking after our bodies, our minds are more likely to follow suit; so start with these physical self-care activities before worrying too much about your mental well-being.
Distract yourself with other things
We’ve all heard the saying “time heals all wounds,” but what does that actually mean? It means that if we distract ourselves from thinking about our exes by focusing on other aspects of our lives—such as schoolwork or volunteering or cooking—then eventually those thoughts will fade from our minds completely! So try not to dwell on your breakup too much.
Give yourself some time to grieve.
This might sound like the last thing you want to do, but it really is important—and it doesn’t have to take long! Just give yourself a few days to sit on your feelings and let them run through your body so that they can leave.
Write down your thoughts and feelings.
Write down everything you’re feeling in a diary or journal so that it can come out on paper instead of staying stuck inside of you where it will make you feel worse and worse until you explode with rage and bitterness at everyone around you for no reason at all (which never feels good).
Get some sleep
It sounds simple, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years here at [company], it’s that sleep makes everything better—even breakups! So do what feels right for your body: Maybe it’s taking a nap in the middle of the day.
Don’t blame yourself
Whatever happened between the two of you is not your fault, so don’t spend too much time berating yourself for what went wrong or obsessing over what might have been different if things had gone differently in the relationship.
Get some exercise
Exercise releases endorphins that will help take your mind off of things and make you feel better overall, so go for a jog around the block or hit up an at-home yoga session (there are tons of great apps out there).
Find closure by talking about it
It might seem like bad advice at first glance — why would you want to talk about an ex? But talking about your ex can help you move on from them faster because it helps you process what happened and clear any lingering doubts or questions from your mind. Plus, if they did something wrong while they were with you (like cheat), talking about it can help ensure that they don’t do it again!
Don’t stalk your ex on social media.
This is one of the hardest things for people who have recently gone through a breakup. It’s easy to want to stalk them on Facebook or Instagram and see what they’re doing now that they aren’t with you anymore, but this will only make things worse for you because it will remind you of how much happier they seemed without you by their side. The best thing for your mental health is not looking at your social media accounts at all!
Don’t Be Afraid To Be Alone
When you’re hurt by someone you love, it can feel like there’s no way to move on unless they come back into your life and make things right again. But being alone is not just normal—it’s healthy! If you want to get over a breakup fast, try taking time to focus on yourself instead of trying to find ways to get back together with your ex.
