To move on from your breakup, keep yourself busy so you’re not thinking about your ex. You can spend extra time with friends and family, pick up a new hobby, and do relaxing activities at home, like reading a good book or taking a bubble bath. Take some time to hide or get rid of anything that reminds you of your ex, as this will make it easier not to think about them. For example, if you have any photos or special mementos of the two of you lying around, put them in a box or throw them in the trash. While taking your mind off your ex can be helpful, make sure you’re not bottling up your feelings, as this will only make you feel worse in the long run. By letting yourself cry and talking about your feelings with someone you trust, you can release your emotions and start to feel better faster.
