A Broken Heart Hurts. How to Get Over it Quickly

Getting your heart broken hurts. A lot. Right now it may seem like you will never get over this terrible feeling. Your confidence is low, your stomach feels sick, and there’s a tight feeling in your chest. I promise you – it will end. Here are some tips for getting over a broken heart faster.

1. Grieve

While it’s appropriate to act like you’re fine at work or other big events, make sure you do take the time to grieve properly. It’s okay to break down. Write in your journal, look at the things that remind you of him and just let out a good cry. People who let themselves grieve get over the grief faster.

2. Surround Yourself With Friends

One of the most important parts of getting over a broken heart is to surround yourself with people who love you. Almost everyone has been there at one point in their lives, and it will help you to hear some of their stories. Being around your friends and family will also help to bring your spirits up and take your mind off of what has happened.

3. Fill Your Together Time

You will find yourself thinking things like ‘right now we would normally be watching our favourite show together’, or ‘right now he would normally be calling me on his way home from work’. Specific times of the day where you would normally be together are definitely some of the hardest times to deal with. Make a date with your friends, or go window shopping at the mall. Distract yourself until that time is over and you will feel less lonely.

4. Do Something For You

Getting out of a relationship is the perfect time to do something just for you. Is there something you’ve always thought of doing but have never gotten around to it? Join a cooking class, or take up a new hobby. Focusing time on yourself will build your confidence up and also get you out meeting new people and enjoying yourself.

5. Be Active

Take up yoga, go jogging, or join a pick-up volleyball team in the evenings. One of the best ways to relieve mental stress is with physical activity. Physical activity releases endorphins in your body which elevate both mood and energy. Plus, it won’t hurt to have your body in top form when you do go back out on the dating scene. ;)


Right now I would normally be watching his street hockey game. :(
