It's always tragic when the time comes to end a relationship. In your time of healing that broken heart, you never know that you might be resorting to unhealthy fads of moving on, and making your body feel worse. Here’re 4 healthy alternatives that will make your moving-on-stage be for the better:

  1. Let it out.

Stop telling yourself "I’m fine" or "It’s no big deal" you are after all in a moment of grief. Allow yourself to feel what you feel and cry when you need to. Building walls for yourself will only hurt you in the long run so let it out and don't keep it all bottled inside.

  1. Talk to Family.

They are the best persons to run to at this time of need. They are the ones who will love you unconditionally and knows you better than anyone else. They'll be glad to know that you decided to go to them with your problems, and you never know what wisdom they may impart to help you feel better.


  1. Look for a New Creative Outlet.

This could range from writing, pottery, calligraphy, photography, painting, or just simply learning a new instrument. The key is doing something you've never tried before, and to just let all your creative juices out; you might even find something you’re good at! This could also serve as an interesting past time and a change of pace rather than stalking your ex's Facebook or Instagram.

  1. Start a Beast-Mode Workout.

Steer clear from anything meditative such as Yoga. You might want to think about enrolling in fun sessions like boxing, Muay Thai, or even MMA. These are the kind of workouts that clears the mind and lets all your aggression out. Not only will you be learning badass self-defense, you also release endorphins that make you feel happy—all while getting that slim figure you've always wanted.

  1. Volunteer.

Try engaging in your community and do charity works. This teaches us to be selfless and helps us spiritually. It makes you feel better about yourself, knowing that in some way you've helped someone in need.
