5 creative ways to get over a breakup // DNAMAG (ph: @alinevelter)

Breaking up is hard to do, but getting over the breakup is always worse. You walk outside and it seems like everyone's having a better life than you. Suddenly your face breaks out from all the crying that and inhaling pizza and frozen yogurt almost every other night. And then your work suffers. That's no way to live. Get back to the better version of yourself. Sooner the better.

1.  CHANGE YOUR HAIR TO CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE  

Better hair, better day. Take it one step at a time, but start with a new hairstyle, a new color. Get those bangs you've been contemplating over the years, it's time for a change.

2. BRAND NEW MORNING ROUTINE

Part of forgetting the past is not repeating it. So, create a new path to freedom and discovery starting with your morning routine. Start with something small, like instead of your usual milk and cereal, get up 15 minutes earlier to make a plate of eggs and toast. Or change up your coffee order. If you live in a city and walk to work, try to find a new route that offers a different scenery, but will still get you to the office on time. Try new little things that could possibly spark new things for you to like.

3. VOLUNTEER

Figure out the one thing you're truly passionate about and find a way to help out. Volunteering is not only so good for the soul, but a good distraction as you're giving your time to something really worthy.

4. ADOPT A PET AND SAVE A LIFE

Anyone who has adopted a rescue dog knows that you don't actually save the dog, it saves you. A new furry friend to devote your time and attention to could cure any heartache. Just be sure to research what exactly and how much goes into pet adoption.

5. LEARN A NEW SKILL

The key word to post break-up recovery is "new". Everything should be new again, that means it's time to learn new things. Sign up to learn a foreign language or enroll in one of the many cool classes that Brit + Co offer. Take up a dance class. 

So there, make the breakup a time of reinvention and relaunching. Now put down that Haagen Dazs and go wash your face.
