Whether you have broken up with your partner on mutual terms or if it was more of a one-sided decision, any breakup can be a tough experience to go through. In some cases, you may begin to feel down or anxious, which can lead to negative behaviors and thoughts.
These are quite common feelings to experience, but it’s important to deal with your feelings before it gets more serious. This is why we are sharing 7 ways to get over a breakup, (in a positive and uplifting way), with you in this article.
7 Ways to start Getting Over A Breakup
Sometimes, the effects of a breakup can be quite toxic, which is why you don’t want to experience them for too long. There are some things that you can do to make the aftermath of a breakup a little bit easier.
It can be difficult to get yourself out of a rut, but it’s not impossible. Certain experiences are different for each individual, so there won’t be one set solution for everyone - but you should find something from this list that works for you.
Here are 7 ways to get over a breakup.
1. Keep Your Distance
Even if you and your partner decide to stay friends after a breakup, it’s still a good idea to keep your distance for a while when it’s all still fresh. If you stay in contact with this person straight after you break up, you could find yourself constantly checking up on them or even trying to find out if they have moved on.
You can’t move on if you are still attached to this person and in contact with them. Especially at the start of a breakup. If you decide to remain friends after a while, that’s completely up to you, but time heals all wounds - so it’s a good idea to keep your distance for a little while.
Keeping your distance from your ex can make it easier to come to terms with the breakup and how you feel about it.
2. Take Care Of Yourself
Self-care should be a priority, especially when you are going through a negative time, such as a breakup. There are many different ways that you can show yourself self-care and self-love.
Some forms of self-care could be through yoga and meditation as these forms of exercise can help you to become more mindful and can improve your mental health and overall wellbeing.
Taking care of yourself should also mean the little things - making sure you are getting enough sleep, doing things that you enjoy and socializing when you can. Try not to neglect yourself, even though it can be an easy thing to do if you are feeling particularly down.
Just remember that you need to look after yourself and put yourself first through this difficult time, even if you feel like doing nothing.
3. Avoid Social Media
With today’s technology, it can be all too easy to log onto social media and see what everyone, including your ex, is up to. Maybe you’re curious as to what they got up to over the weekend, so you have a look online and see that they went to a party. This is likely to cause you to feel worse.
That’s why it’s important to try and stay away from social media as much as you can, or at least your ex-partner’s social media. You could unfriend or block them if you need to - that way you can’t go looking them up when you are feeling particularly sad one night.
Checking on your ex won’t necessarily help you to move on and get over your break up, it can bring back memories, cause you pain or jealousy and much more. Try and spend your time doing something you enjoy, or seeing friends, instead of sitting on social media.
4. Keep A Journal
A journal can be a great way to document all of your feelings throughout your break up or other tough times you may be experiencing. Writing things down can sometimes act as a sort of therapy - you can write your worries down and think about them, and once you are done, you can try and forget about them.
You could also keep a gratitude journal, which is where you write down everything you are thankful for in your life; the things that make you happy. This can help you to change your perspective on things as you should feel more positive and thankful for the things you do have, and not be negative because of the things you might lack.
It can be easy to dwell on the past and the relationship you once had, however, keeping a gratitude journal lets you focus on the present and what you do have, which can also keep you motivated and excited for your future.
5. Surround Yourself With Supportive People
It’s good to have a positive, supportive group of people in your life, who can be there for you when you go through rough times. Sometimes, when we feel down, we can isolate ourselves from our friends or family, to be on our own.
However, this isn’t always a good thing to do, as we can sometimes overthink things and make ourselves feel worse, especially if we have no one else to talk to about how we feel. If you have someone you can trust and talk to about how you are feeling, try to reach out to them.
This way, you will be surrounded by positive and supportive friends who can give you rational advice whilst letting you get some of your emotions and feelings off your chest.
When you go through a breakup or any bad time in your life, you may find yourself thinking negatively, especially about yourself and your situation. Maybe you blame yourself? Or you are angry with yourself? Perhaps you even feel that you won’t find love again?
Any of these thoughts can run through your mind when you are having a hard time - and it’s important to find ways to replace these negative beliefs. This is where self-hypnosis can help. Self-hypnosis can replace your negative limiting thoughts with positive ones.

Self-hypnosis can really help get to the root of the problem, which could be your way of thinking and how you are judging yourself about your breakup.
7. Try New Things
Instead of staying at home or isolating yourself from others, it can actually be a good time to try new things and maybe even do some things on your own. When you break up from a relationship it can feel lonely, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Maybe you want to see a film, but you have no one to go with - why not try going on your own? This can really help to give you a sense of independence and could even help to increase your confidence too. It can be a good time to take yourself out on dates and have a little bit more independence.
Even just going outside and walking in nature on your own can be a great activity to do to help you feel more positive and independent. You can have some time to yourself to think but in a more positive environment.
