Heartbreaks are a part of life for anyone and everyone these days. Gone are the days when relationships were all about making it work. Now it is more about living in the moment. The moment the charm is lost, a relationship gets vulnerable. Thus, having your heart broken repeatedly is nothing unusual. But at the same time, it is essential to get back to your life once again and start enjoying it. You cannot put it on hold, especially in a fast-paced world like today. Here are some tried and tested ways in which a single man can get back to his regular lifestyle and recover from a heartbreak.
Get a clean break
Often getting a closure is all you need to move on with your life. But not all relationships end on good terms and closures happen for the lucky few. But you can still do your part in helping yourself to move on healthily.
Start with removing phone numbers, emails, social media links and every means of contacting each other. If needed, block the other person and take your time. Delete photographs or at least archive them away till you are ready to see them without having a breakdown.
Indulge in productive hobbies
Nothing works better than keeping the mind and body busy with new activities. Rediscover old hobbies and talents. Try your hand at new things. Or simply immerse yourself in your work and any activity you were already involved in. Try and steer clear of any activities that may remind you of her.
Right after a breakup, your mind will be completely occupied by old memories. It is important to break out of this cycle to function normally once more. This is only possible when you engage your mind in something else that you enjoy.
Get some sexual action
More often than not, the heartbreak lingers when you keep missing the sex. Now, it is quite difficult to meet new people and built a connection that culminates in sex when you are depressed. In some extreme situation, you can consider getting a premium sex doll to let out some of the steam. It is a healthy way to get relieved from the sexual frustration that accompanies a heartbreak.
Don’t look for rebounds
One very common tendency we have is seeking solace in another new person right after the breakup. It is human to look for the same connection, bonding and company because that is what we miss the most, sometimes, even more than the person. As a result, we get involved in rebound relationships. Avoid giving into this temptation. They may seem like a relief but only temporarily. Soon it can get frustrating when you cannot find the same solace in the new person. Before you know it, the new relationship gets bitter too and now you end up hurt even more.
Go on a solo trip
Loving yourself and enjoying your own company is the key to recover from a heartbreak. A solo trip is the perfect beginning to do that. Plan a trip to a quiet place or anywhere you always wanted to visit. From planning to all activities- do things alone. It can be a learning experience too which help you discover a lot about yourself. Moreover, you get a break from your hectic lifestyle and get more time to retrospect and deal with your feelings.
Heartbreak is a temporary phase and eventually you have to move on in life. But it calls for some effort on your part as well. You can only get over a heartbreak when you heart truly wants to.
