Many thanks to eHarmony UK for today’s sponsored post. Helpful advice at any stage in the relationship, in my most humble opinion. Sometimes it’s good to just take care of yourself, yes? XOXO
When a relationship ends, it’s tempting to stay in your pajamas all day and eat ice cream. But this isn’t the best solution for you or your waistline. Here are seven tips to help heal that broken heart, and perhaps even find love again…
1. Accept it’s over
Until you accept the relationship is over, you’re never going to be able to move on. It’ll be tough coming to terms with the fact your ex isn’t coming back. However, by dealing with your grief now, you’ll be able to look to the future with a more positive outlook.
2. Spring cleaning
Remove any painful reminders of your relationship from your home. If the novelty fridge magnet from your holiday in Chicago reduces you to tears, bin it. Don’t forget your online profile too. The last thing you want to see is a massive picture of your ex pop up on your homepage, so unfriend them immediately.
3. Spend time with friends
Friends support one another so let yours cheer you up. They’ve all been there, even the ones raving about their latest love interest. Pour your heart out over a nice cup of tea or get glammed up for a big night out with the gang.
4. Escape to the sun
Leave the grey skies and gloomy outlook at home by jetting off to somewhere sunny. You don’t need your ex to make you happy. Prove it to yourself with some quality time alone in a tropical paradise. Some time to yourself will help you clear your head. Plus, planning your dream holiday is a great way to distract yourself.
5. Start a new hobby
Always wanted to learn to knit? Avoid moping around in front of the television by starting a new hobby or project. Once those knitting needles start clicking, there won’t be time to dwell on what your ex is up to now. An added bonus is that you’ll end up with a lovely new jumper.
6. Get a confidence boost
When you’re feeling low, one of the best ways to improve your mood is to indulge in a bit of pampering. Find a spa and relax in the hot tub with a crisp glass of bubbly. After a break-up, it’s good to be selfish and think about what you want. If it takes place on the massage table, even better.
With your inner glow restored, it’s now time to concentrate on the outside bits. Stroll down to the salon and transform yourself with a head-turning new do.
7. Start searching for your soul mate
Once the dust has settled and you’re back to your old self, it’s time to start thinking about the future. Your ex wasn’t the only person for you so get out there and find your soul mate. The eHarmony website has thousands of potential suitors across the country waiting to woo you. Find your Cambridge match or a beautiful London beau with eHarmony.
