There are a lot of things you can do for yourself after a breakup that aren’t so great for you. Alcohol, binge eating, that impulsive haircut that seemed like such a good idea at the time. . . you know, those kinds of things. Likewise, there are a lot of things you can do after a breakup that simply have to be done. And by this, I mean things like giving back your ex’s things and un-friending them from your Facebook account.
But is there anything you can do for yourself after a breakup that would be both enjoyable AND helpful? Of course there is! I’ve put together a list of 25 things you can do for yourself after a breakup that will help with the healing process without ruining your waistline or liver. I didn’t want to overwhelm you with all of them, however, so I’ve split the list up into 5 parts.
So what can you do for yourself after a breakup?
1. Get a manicure
There is something relaxing and rejuvenating about getting a manicure. And after a breakup, you deserve to feel a bit pampered, so head on out to your favorite salon. Be a bit daring by trying out a new color. Every time you look down at your nails, you’ll be able to smile.
2. Watch a movie with friends
After a breakup, it helps to be around people who care about you and a movie night with your friends can be the cure for a lot of sadness. Pop some popcorn, buy a 12-pack of Diet Coke and settle in to watch your all time favorite movie ever. Don’t be tempted to put on a sad or romantic movie. You want something fun that will keep you laughing.
3. Go for a run.
Get out in the open air by going for a run. Fresh air and exercise will do a lot to clear your mind of your recent breakup. Going for a run will also ensure that you’ve gotten a workout and introduce endorphins into your system that will make you feel good. And after the pain of a breakup, don’t you want to feel good about yourself?
4. Eat chocolate
Another things that will make you feel good is eating chocolate. Chocolate consumption stimulates the creation of serotonin in our bodies, which is the chemical that causes happiness. It also boosts concentration and is good for both your heart and your blood pressure! So, while I wouldn’t recommend bingeing on the sweet, go ahead and treat yourself to a few pieces.
5. Take a candle-lit bath.
We all know that going through a breakup can cause a lot of stress. To combat that stress, relax by taking a candle-lit bath. This will give you a chance to truly settle into your post-breakup self and allow you to release the tension you may be carrying in your body. Plus, you can pamper yourself a bit and combine the last two suggestions by eating chocolate in a candle-lit bath. Mmmm . . . relaxing, right?
