Getting over a breakup takes time, tears, and uh... mint chocolate ice cream, but if you want to try something new, here are four interesting strategies real girls swear by!
Get new sheets.
For people who shared intimate moments with their partner, seeing the bed just brings back memories of what the past–breakfast in bed, morning kisses, makeup sex. Speed up your healing process by changing your mattress or giving your room a major makeover.
Read the newspaper.
Use the news as a useful distraction. Instead of going to Facebook (and probably seeing him with a new girl), check the news for current events. Doing this doesn't just help you steer clear of the lovey-dovey couples on your timeline, but also prevents you from stumbling across posts that could break your heart.
Explore the world around you.
Try getting lost in an unfamiliar neighborhood or book a plane ticket to a place you’ve always wanted to go to. Taking a trip can serve as a reminder that there are other exciting things out there waiting for you. Adventure awaits.
Scrub the floors.
You'd be surprised at how effective doing the household chores is at mending broken hearts. Aside from helping you release your hurt and anger–cleaning your floors requires aggressive scrubbing–it also takes your mind off your ex and allows you to set a goal that’s easy to accomplish, giving you a sense of fulfillment after the task is done.
