One Basic Thing That Will Help You Feel Better After a Breakup

I know it sucks big time right after a breakup. I have been there. In fact, I'm there right now, and it definitely sucks.

The sleepless nights, the depression, the need to drink, overeat, and numb your pain with stuff like music and video games.

I've learned to deal with it better through the use of exercise, but sometimes you can't bring yourself to just run out the door and start jogging 20 miles. Yep - I know.

So when you've just gone through a breakup and you need a way to immediately feel better, try this:

1. Find a quiet place to sit.
2. Tune out as many outside distractions as you can.
3. Concentrate on one object in front of you - say, a lamp.
4. Focus on the texture of the object you're looking at. Put all your conscious thought into looking at that one object.

As you do this object focus exercise, I want you to take deep breaths as well. Slowly in, then out.

When the negative thoughts try to come racing into your mind again, don't let them surface. Instead, picture them in a little box or bubble in your mind - and then let go, slowly, of this image, in your mind.

Picture it getting smaller and smaller.

Until finally, it just pops, and is gone.

Using this little method is a great way to get your thoughts focused after a breakup, when your head is swimming with all the negative stuff after your ex-girlfriend (or boyfriend) has left you.

Getting refocused is the starting point to post-breakup recovery, and if you keep trying this technique for a little bit, you'll eventually be able to use it every time you feel bad - even after things that aren't breakup-related.

But the main thing is that you feel better, and that's what I want for you. So try out this technique if you can, when you're feeling really crappy after a breakup. I think it might help. :)
