The worst thing I know is to be heartbroken.
It hurts so bad.
When love stops, it just hurts. And sometimes it can hurt really bad.
Just remember, no matter how hard the heartbreak feels it’s a natural process.
This process makes you wiser and stronger – but you have to go through this process to get this experience with you.
I know it from myself. I have walked down that horrible, yet educational road. That’s why I, with respect for your situation, have collected the healthy habits I have used myself and always recommend clients below.
Research have shown that healthy habits make it easier to get through this break up.
The 8 good habits are as followed:
Cry it out!
Tears that are produced of stress help the body naturally getting rid of the stress hormone “cortisol”. It is balm for the soul and there is nothing that beats the feeling after a good cry. That “ahhhh”. The window is just a bit clearer to look out of.
A break from social media can help you avoid the pressure of appearing happy, satisfied and with surplus energy – like everybody else. Furthermore, it eliminates the chance of stalking your Ex on Facebook.
Studies shows that nature and fresh air around you can improve on both your self-esteem and your mood
Exercise increases your endorphin production in your brain that makes you feel happier, and it can naturally offset the imbalance your body experiences when you lose someone.
Take a shower!
A hot shower triggers a soothing and relaxing effect on your body. Try lavender oil in your bathtub so you can relax even more. In addition, a bath can be used therapeutically to wash something/him away from you.
Making contact with friends can help you manage the breakup and give you a sense of belonging.
Make a plan!
Being busy with something else is always good. Set new goals you WILL achieve. Set a goal and make a plan. It removes the focus and gives you joy when you experience the process is well underway. Celebrate your victories on the way to the goal.
Time is your friend!
Things and especially break ups take time. The healthier you are mentally, the healthier and faster you get through. But the only way out is through. There are no shortcuts.
