What are some ways to recover from a breakup after a long-term relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Being heartbroken can make you blind to moving on, so you need to recover a bit and get your life back. Cupid has some tips:

1. Don’t act scornfully: Lashing out at your ex via phone call, text, e-mail, etc., will only worsen the hurt you’re experiencing. Instead, whenever thoughts of the break-up cross your mind, choose a peaceful thought or action- like meditation, yoga, or talking to your friends- to ease the sting.

2. Stay busy and productive: It has been proven time and time again (by no one but ourselves) that slumping on the couch with a sad movie and ice cream doesn’t help. Don’t put your life on hold because of a split! Channel the emotions positively and excel at work, school, or your favorite hobbies.

3. Don’t move on too soon. If you still find yourself missing your ex, and you’re not ready to go out meeting new people, then don’t! There’s no rush. It takes time to heal and process the end of a relationship- that’s the only way to learn from it. Take your time getting over them.
