Best Ways to Overcome the Breakup Blues

Breakups are never fun but they are often necessary to get to the place in life where you belong. Although you may believe that there are brighter days in your future, it does not make the present any less painful. You do not have to spend weeks locked in a dark room in order to overcome this obstacle. Here are ten baby steps to assist you out of your breakup rut.

1. Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia - Ok, so you don't want to go overboard with the indulgences, but go ahead and enjoy some good old fashion comfort foods.

2. Cry - There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a good cry. Let it out, scream at the universe, whatever gets it off your chest.

3. Treat Yourself - Go shopping, get a manicure, visit your favorite restaurant. Now is the ideal time to treat yourself well.

4. Bury the Nostalgia - It is not necessary to burn everything associated with your ended relationship, but tuck it away. Out of site and out of mind.

5. Rekindle Relationships - Call up some friends you may not have spoken with for a while. Sometimes friendships get neglected in these situations. Let your friends be there for you, both to lean on and as a distraction.

6. Avoid the Rebound - It is never a good idea to try and substitute one relationship with another. It is unfair to all parties involved.

7. Look for the Silver Lining - Focus on the good things. Look for any good thing, even the smallest will make a difference.

8. Volunteer - Move you focus outside of yourself. Doing good for others will boost your self-esteem and give you a good perspective on life. There is always someone out there that is going through something far tougher that what you are facing at the moment.

9. Be optimistic - Approaching life with a good attitude will radically alter the course of your life. Truly believing life will get better is a self-fulfilling prophesy.

10. Give yourself a Pep Talk - There is no person's voice you hear more often than your own. Talk your self through the hard times and you will be just fine.
