How To Heal A Broken Heart

Breaking up is never easy and healing a broken heart takes time, space and most important of all self‑compassion. To help you navigate through it we put together a guide to help you cope with tips on how to get over heartbreak that have worked for us in the past.

Take time to grieve
Losing someone always results in a grieving process, there’s no specific amount of time for this to happen and it’s different for everyone. Taking time to process your feelings and grieve the loss properly will allow you to feel better sooner without regressions. Since your feelings have all been properly felt and processed, chances are you won’t find yourself falling back down once you feel like you’re done grieving.

Allow yourself to flow
Talking about what’s on your mind is a basic step when it comes to healing a broken heart. You might find it helpful to talk about your feelings with a friend, a family member or even a therapist. If you’re not comfortable talking about your feelings, you can always write them down or meditate on them. Painting also works to help you release whatever’s on your mind.

Get busy
Finding joy in new things will do wonders for you. And we know it’s easier said than done, but any little thing can help immensely. Coffee or lunch with a friend, a good book, a good workout, a walk with your favorite music; the options are endless and they will for sure lift you up a little bit higher than where you were before. Get busy and get moving, we know it might not be what you want to do but it will help. A lot.

Acknowledge your feelings
Acknowledging what you’re feeling and taking time to process them correctly is something you owe to yourself. It’s normal for feelings and thoughts about your ex to come back and flow, don’t block them out. Take a step back and acknowledge what you’re feeling, process through the thoughts and feelings and let it flow. You need to cry? Do it. Need to talk about it? Do it. Grief commands to be felt, so instead of fighting it embrace it and that will help you process through it faster.

Find meaning in the end
If at all possible‑ and this might come at the end‑ try and make sense of or find a meaning of why your relationship ended. Over time and after grieving you might come to discover that it was in your best interest for this relationship to end. Make peace with the thoughts that it’s what’s best for the biggest picture. This is a final closure step that will come naturally for you.
