11 Ways to Keep Your Mind off a Breakup ...


If you’ve been through a breakup recently or maybe even not so recently, you might be looking for ways to keep your mind off a breakup. We all know breakups are awful and hard to get through. You feel like you’re missing a piece of you and it can seem like nothing or no one can help you get through this horrible time. While you want to allow yourself time to grieve, you don’t want to spend endless hours fixating on the past and trying to figure out what went wrong. Keep reading below for some helpful ways to keep your mind off a breakup and cope.

Cut off Contact

One of the best ways to keep your mind off a breakup is to avoid any contact with your ex. Calling, texting, emailing or checking for updates on social media outlets isn’t likely going to change anything, and holding on to the hope that there could possibly be a reconciliation won’t allow you to live your life and move forward. Don’t tempt or torture yourself by trying to keep in contact with your ex. It’ll only make recovery harder and it’ll make artificially idealizing your ex and the relationship easier.
