What’s the most common trait of human beings?
It’s the capacity to fall in love.
Everyone experiences this intense sensation at least once in a lifetime. You go out and meet someone unique. There is an instant spark, your personalities coincide, your souls sync up, and you feel like two pieces of a puzzle joined together by destiny.
For a little while, this euphoria seems eternal. You’ll be together forever.
Unfortunately, all good things will eventually come to an end. This is the harsh reality of life unless you’re incredibly lucky to find that special someone you’ll be with forever.
But if you’re anything like the rest of us, you must have experienced a heartbreak already.
The heart is the seat of emotions. Every time it experiences extreme pleasure to extreme pain, it goes haywire and breaks up.
This phenomenon sends waves of depressions all over the body and freezes you.
You don’t want to get out of bed, eat anything, talk to anyone or even open the drapes to let some sunlight into your room.
This behavior is understandable yet quite unhealthy for your overall well-being.
So, how do you heal a broken heart and move on? How can you get back on your usual way of life? How can you start living life to its fullest again?
Go through the following healing tips to get an answer to these questions.
Accept the Reality
The period following a break-up is devastating. It is overruled by unruly thoughts and unfulfilled fantasies.
How could something like this happen to you? You loved someone with all your heart, and this is what you got in return. Did you deserve to be treated that way?
Listen to me.
This is not going to work out. Depression is an entrapping abyss from which only you can pull yourself out.
And the first step to getting out of that abyss starts with acceptance.
Accept that this has happened to you. Cut off all ties with the one who’s broken your heart.
Talk It Out
After acceptance comes expression.
You’re in pain – a lot. Everyone can see it written across your face.
Do not hold it in or it will smolder underground and eventually erupt in an untasteful manner. Instead, slowly let it out by talking to someone about it. That someone can be a complete stranger or a close friend.
Talk your pain out. Eject it from your system in any way possible. Do a creative catharsis.
Once it’s gone, you’ll find a deep cavity within yourself. The next step would be filling it with all the good things in the world.
Get Your Traveler’s Shoes On
You feel parched like a plant deprived of nourishment. It’s time to put a distance between yourself and the place where you’ve found only misery.
How can you do that?
By putting your traveler’s shoes on and going on a life-changing journey.
Pack light, book your flight and behold the beautiful sights all across the world. Trek through rainforests, go mountain climbing and soak yourself in soothing natural spas.
Gain new experiences to get over the past painful one. You can do this!
Watch Empowering Movies
If you don’t feel like leaving your room, then how about you travel the world virtually?
Indulge yourself in other people’s stories, relive their accounts, relate to their grievances and joys and you’ll get over your own.
One of the best ways to do that is by watching movies. Use your brand new Xfinity TV for this purpose and stream self-empowering movies in HD. In addition to this, you can watch comedy movies, too.
Change Your Style
When you’re going through a heartbreak, you tend to question everything about yourself. This line of thought can endanger your very identity, damage your self-confidence, and lead you to a self-deprecating despair.
You should not let this happen.
Bring a positive change in your style. Let go of everything pulling you down. Get a new hairstyle, buy some new clothes, and basically treat yourself.
This positive change in your appearance will bring a positive change in your personality. You’ll definitely feel much better after.
Pick Up a Productive Hobby
Fix your attention on a new activity.
Go to the gym and exercise your heart out. Work on your body by taking up 30-day challenges or you can learn a musical instrument. Take art and crafts classes and create unique works of your own.
Yoga and meditation is another way to centralize your focus and let out the suppressed pain. You can write in your journal, too.
Anything to divert and discipline your raging thoughts and feelings will be beneficial for you.
Get a Pet
You’ve lost a companion. How about you gain another one?
Go to the nearest pet store or adoption house and purchase a cat, a dog, a parrot – whatever suits you best. A pet in your life can bring an unfathomable amount of joy.
Once you actualize the aforementioned tips, getting over a heartbreak won’t seem like such a huge task. Remember: there’s always a silver lining behind a dark cloud.
