No matter how amicable a breakup is, people still hurt. So how do you survive this hurtful experience? Well, as a regular girl, below are 8 things you HAVE to do to help you with the moving on process:

1. Get rid of the bad bedroom vibe.

Buying yourself some new beddings will help you get that well needed fresh start faster.

2. Get in shape.

Hit the gym, enroll in Zumba, Yoga or Piates. Great exercise in known to improve mood and depression after a single 30-minute moderate intensity exercise session. Done in the evening, this can be very relaxing. Let’s also not forget the amazing body you will have in a few weeks.

3. Update your makeup.

Much as this may not heal your broken heart instantly, it will lift your spirits by making you look sexier.

4. Confront your feelings about the breakup.

Allowing yourself to feel the hurt is a great and most healthy way of dealing with breakups. So whenever the bad feeling arises, allow yourself to mourn. This will help you accept the situation and regain control.

5. Avoid all contact with your ex for at least 30 days.

Relationship therapist Rachel A. Sussman, author of The Breakup Bible believes kind of boyfriend cleanse will help you move on faster because “you’re proving to yourself that you can survive without him”.

6. Stop cyber-stalking your ex.

Spying on him will make it harder for you to get on with your life. Delete his number, unfriend him, remove him from your chats. You don’t want to be reminded of him every time you accidentally see his profile.

7. Talk to your friends about what you need.

If you want to go dancing, have cocktails or just talk, your girls will always have your back. State clearly what you want in your life as you deal with it.

8. Take a vacation.

Taking a trip can be great once you give yourself a bit of time to feel like crap about the breakup. Once the mourning is done, you will truly enjoy the getaway.

Whatever you decide to do, whatever works for you, always know that its never that serious. When all is said and done, you will eventually move on. Its only a matter of time…
