Cut all the contact

Keep your distance and don’t text, email, meet in person or call.

Cutting the ties for good when it’s over puts you on a faster path to healing.

  • Set up an “Emergency Contact List” that contains all your BFFs’ phone number, when you are tempted to call your Ex, call and talk to your friends instead.
  • Pick an activity that you can do to replace the desire of texting/calling/stalking your ex.

Let Your Emotions Out

Let Your Emotions Out

Cry, sob your eyes out, scream and yell. As long as it doesn’t hurt yourself or anybody else, find ways to release and let go of the pain you may be feeling. 

Listen to sad songs. Listening to sad songs can regulate negative emotion and mood as well as consolation.

Accept the fact that it’s over

Coping with the end of a relationship is a little bit like a 12 step program. You will reach acceptance far sooner by staying away from that person.

Don’t over-analyze what could have been different. Your mission now is to get to the place where you aren’t battling with yourself about the way things are. Do this with compassion and don’t beat yourself up.

Find Yourself

There are a lot of personal things that made you special, you just have to find them again and get the feeling back. 

  • How was your life before the relationship?
  • What do you want to achieve in your life and how should you start?
  • What is the most important thing you should improve?

Pay attention to your thoughts

As you look to move forward in your life, don’t deny or grasp on to your ex’s memory. Acknowledge it, smile or cry. Let the memory go instead of clinging onto it. 

  • CLEAR OUT all the things that stimulate memories
  • Don’t try to escape from your feelings. Face them. Write down how you feel to help you declutter your mind.

Don’t rush into another relationship

Don’t bounce into another relationship too quickly, thinking that you’re okay.

  • Ask yourself what kind of relationship you want. Understanding your need before entering a relationship is key because this can save you from another heartbreak.
  • Explore and meet new people when you are ready. Make sure you talk to them, take your time to get to know them before making the move to start a new relationship.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
