After a breakup one of the best things to do is to get in touch with yourself and remove the reminders of your relationship to be able to move on. Getting a fresh start may not be easy, but will make you feel better.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Your bedroom is not only the place where you recharge every day. It can hold a lot of memories, good or bad, of the former relationship. The biggest step is to get in there and freshen it up! Clear out any reminders and move things around. Maybe switch your bed from one side of the room to the other. Get some new bedding. Add a beautiful picture. Pick out a new air freshener that is calming, like lavender. You will be amazed at how much it can impact your vibe!
The Rest of House
The rest of the house may not need too much, but I would encourage you to pay attention to any rooms that hold memories for you and apply some of the bedroom tips to those areas. Did you always brush your teeth next to each other in the bathroom? Get new towels and a new shower curtain. Move some things around. Paint. Clean from top to bottom. The key for the home is to reclaim your space. Make it your own again.
There are so many ways to refresh yourself after going through a breakup. Tired and rundown? Plan a spa day. Did you hold onto the same style of hair and makeup because they liked it? Get that cute cut. Experiment with your look. Join a gym. Take that Zumba class. Get a killer new outfit. Treat yourself well. You get the idea.
Your Well Being
Get out of town! No, really…take a weekend trip! Getting away can bring clarity and peace, especially if the clips are playing over and over in your mind. Spend time with your friends. Make a list of things you would like to try. Maybe a painting party, or hiking, whatever calls to you. Then get out there and do some of them!
When you are not “we” anymore, it’s so important to become you again. Because you are awesome.
