Breaking up with somebody you have spent part of your life with can be very difficult, moving forward, thinking straight, and making life decisions become quite hard.

Always remember, life goes on.

Here are a few tips to help you move on from a particularly painful breakup.

1. Find a New Hobby

I believe you have heard the maxim, ‘an idle mind is the devil’s playground’ this rings true after a breakup. Having nothing to occupy your mind after a break up will leave you dwelling so much on the pain.

Thus engage your body and mind in something you enjoy doing. This could be reading, cooking, traveling, etc.

2. Go Out More

Staying at home and pining will not do you any good, so it is advisable to go out and enjoy yourself. Catch up with old friends, you are also allowed to make new ones as you engage in harmless fun activities.

Remember while you socialize, do not jump into another relationship just yet.

3.  Always Look Good

It is common after breaking up with your partner to let yourself go and embrace looking unkempt.


Make looking good the best revenge after a split, but ensure you are not dressed to look needy or thirsty, it is not a good look. While you shouldn’t worry if your ex is lurking, while monitoring you, no harm in looking your best.

Don’t forget to post photos of you looking your best on social media.

4. Listen to Good Music

Good music is your best friend after a break up, nothing like soothing music to ease the pain in your heart. Listening to your favorite music can help, however avoid music that are too soulful with lyrics about getting brokenhearted.

5.  Enjoy a good laugh, watch comedy series

A laughter a day, keeps the doctor away, thus watching a comedy show will help you forget your worries. Laughter will undoubtedly elevate your spirit.
