Post Break-Up Coping Mechanisms

After your done eating pints of Ben & Jerry's while watching rom-coms in your bed for two weeks... it's time to get your a** up and live your best life.


Anyway, you're better off without them.


1. Watch Netflix (but funny feel-good Netflix)

Take your mind off the breakup and watch something that will distract you, something that will make you laugh! Even if it only works for the 125-minute running time; it's better than nothing.

2. Girls Day!


What are friends for if not to remind you that you could do better? Girl's day possibilities are endless...

  • NYC trip

  • Brunch!

  • Self-Care Sleepover

  • Hit the Bars

  • Movie and Wine Night

  • Shopping Spree!



3. Hit The Gym

What better way to get over a breakup than to sprint out your anger and get that revenge bod everyone talks about?


Plus, imagine how crazy that would drive your ex...


4. Spend Time With Family

What better way to remember how amazing you are than spend time with the bada** who raised you?


You think she's gonna let you cry over someone who clearly isn't worth your time?


No.


Any good mom will help you back on your feet and back in the game ASAP.

And if you want to be reminded how you deserve to be treated?


Spend some time with your dad.


He is the first man and best man in your life. And you'll always be his little girl (who no guy deserves).



5. Have a Photoshoot


I wouldn't wanna be this girl's ex after she posts these pictures. Because


DAMN.


Make him regret his entire existence sis.



6. Get to Work

Did Elle Woods give up after Warner broke up with her?


No!


That b*tch got into the law school that he was waitlisted to and solved a murder case in her first year.


AND found her husband.


So go work on yourself and become the best version of yourself.

Don't let a breakup ruin you, let it motivate you.


Of course it's going to take a while to get over it, but you will. And you'll be better off.


They don't call it a post-breakup glow-up for nothing. ;)
