Staying Healthy Through a Difficult Breakup

Yoga Stretch

Romantic relationships have been the twine that holds the world together for so many people at different points in their lives. And as so many people do recall it was usually a time of bliss and such perfection where one could literally do nothing without the other. Relationships do have their effect on almost all ramifications of an individual’s life. They are brighter, smile more, and in fact this physiological state of well-being impacts the psychological outlook of the person. Their brain secretes more dopamine, epinephrine, serotonin, and all the feel-good hormones.

The case is always almost similar when there is a breakup, and that’s why some say there’s no good breakup. As it also tells on your whole being, no matter how mutual the breakup was and for whatever reason. As individuals with different psychological makeup, we react to issues differently. While some people might feel really hurt they eventually pick themselves up and gradually return back to their way of life. While for some people they almost breakdown, and understandably so seeing that they practically shared their best moments with their lovers. 

Irrespective of the time frame, they still hurt as you have opened yourself up, let your defenses down and allow another person to be a part of the whole that completes you. Aftermaths of a breakup are usually heart-wrenching, painful, and the emotional trauma can usually manifest in physiological symptoms like nausea, heart palpitations, and body aches. This often leads people to run to the wrong things for succor. Some eat excessively, drink excessively or just wallow in their self-pity, not eating or drinking for days. 

Importantly, the critical thing to do after a breakup is to get back your life, energy, your routine and most importantly to get you back. Truthfully speaking this is usually hard as we’ve all been there before. But are you going to lock yourself up and isolate yourself from the world? Of course not! It is important you break free of that circle of emotions and here are a couple of things that you can do to get you back. 

Connecting With Friends And Family

One of the fastest ways to get back on track after a breakup is being with your friends and loved ones in general. Being around people automatically prevents you from drowning yourself in thoughts that can be unhelpful. And what more? They understand what you are going through and will want to do everything possible to lighten your burden and cheer your spirit.

Being with people you love helps you realize that people have been through a lot and that this kind of thing is meant to happen. No one knows you better than your family and being with them during this time would surely do you a world of good. But guess what? Life goes on and after a while, you will realize that the breakup was probably best. Or would you prefer a broken marriage to a broken relationship? I thought as much. 

Learning Something You Love

Having realized that your life can’t be on hold cos of a relationship that didn’t work out courtesy your family and friends, what better time to get your brain fixed on a task than engaging in learning something new that you have always loved but for some reasons have never done.

Have you been thinking of learning the guitar, or taking ballet classes or baking classes? Whatever it is just get to it. This helps your brain focus and you realize that you have no time to think about your ex. Plus, you also get to meet new people. See? It’s a total win-win! P.S: It must be an activity you love. 

Going On A Trip

Taking a trip after a breakup does many things for you, it helps you focus on you and rely on yourself. It’s usually a great time to meet people. You may have a place you loved to visit on your bucket list that you usually haven’t got time for? Now is the time to take that trip.

Research has proven that travel makes you healthier, relieves stress and depression, boosts happiness and satisfaction, it also allows your creative juice flow. Are you still contemplating taking that trip? Hit the road! 

Writing In A Journal

Writing has got to be one of the most psychological blessings of this present age. Research has shown that writing in a patterned manner detailing how you are improving helps you redefine your sense of self, and gives clarity to your thought. Writing helps our mind focus and see things not from a myopic point of view but a holistic one.

Writing helps your mind slow down and think about different aspects of the experience and help you make better decisions about moving forward. You can also write about what you have learned, how you have grown during the relationship. This helps you see more positive and appreciate the good times and overlook the bad. 

Avoid Alcohol – Use Cannabis Oil

It is important to note that during this period people would readily run to alcohol to forget their present predicaments but this doesn’t always work cos it instead comes back stronger. Why not face the fact that it is over and use proven items that can improve your mood. And in this case cannabis oil.

Remember how we said that emotional trauma can result in pain? Yes, CBD oil can help with that. It also reduces stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. On your path to healing, a bottle of CBD oil will do you incredible good. You can purchase it in a dispensary close to you.
