Going through a breakup and getting over your ex-partner is never easy, but 5-Minute Crafts prepared several practical ways to cope with this process better and soothe your heartache faster.

❗ If you’re feeling stuck in a period of sadness after a breakup for a long time, you should see a therapist who’ll give you professional help.

1. Stick to your daily routine.

What to do:

Shower daily, eat regular meals, get enough sleep, and create a proper morning and nighttime routine for yourself.

Why:

Breakups can lead to chaos and disorganization in your life, so sticking to your usual rhythm will help you keep your life in order and feel better.

2. Give yourself a treat before bed.

What to do:

Eat your night cheese, ice cream, turkey, or yogurt, or drink milk before bed.

Why:

An ingredient called tryptophan will help you calm down and feel more relaxed.

3. Rearrange your home.

What to do:

Rearrange the furniture in your home, get rid of the things that are associated with bad memories, and add some new inspiring pieces to your room.

Why:

Refreshing your space will help you make new memories and speed up the healing process.

4. Explore new places.

What to do:

✅ Take a vacation, go on a weekend trip, walk around the parts of your own city where you’ve never been before, or just switch up your route home and check out a new restaurant or 2.

Why:

Visiting new places is a good source of distraction from negative thoughts.

5. Write down your feelings.

What to do:

Write a letter to your ex-partner, expressing how you feel and telling them all the things you’re grateful for and the things you’re disappointed about, how the breakup is affecting you, and anything else you want to tell this person. But instead of sending this letter, throw it away.

Why:

Expressing your feelings in a form of writing will help you get closure and let your emotional baggage go.

6. Don’t contact your ex-partner.

What to do:

Delete your ex’s number from your phone and unfollow them on social media.

Why:

Cutting ties will help you get over your heartache faster, adjust to life without your ex, and eliminate the impulse to call them or send them a message later.

7. Find a hobby.

What to do:

✅ Sign up for a boxing class to manage your anger, volunteer at an animal shelter, practice yoga, ride a bike, or learn a new language. In other words, do anything you’ve always wanted to do or liked to do before meeting your partner.

Why:

Pursuing your interests will help you move on faster and reestablish your own identity outside of the relationship.

8. Hang out with your friends more.

What to do:

Reach out to your best friends, parents, relatives, or anyone else who can support you every time you want to send a text to your partner or call them.

Why:

Your friends will remind you of what a good person you are and show you that you still matter.

9. Meditate.

What to do:

✅ Sit down in a comfortable position, take a deep breath through your nose, and breathe out through your mouth. Repeat this 3 times.

Why:

Meditation will help you distract your mind in a healthy way and calm down your nervous system.
