How to Stay Happy and Healthy After a Breakup

Don’t let some douche get you down. Here are four ways to seize the (happy) days ahead.


When I caught my last boyfriend cheating on me (with a Hooters waitress, no less!), I was crushed. How could he do this? Doesn’t he value my feelings more than a tawdry fling with some tramp? Clearly not. What a dolt. Anyhow, I soon learned that there’s no sense trying to make sense of crazy. Let crazy be crazy and stay far, far away.

I didn’t come to that conclusion quickly though. After that breakup, I stayed indoors for way too long wondering about my own worth in the eyes of men. What a waste of time.

Whether you’ve parted with a partner of several years or several months, it’s likely you’ve been feeling blue and rather uninspired.

    Having a positive mental attitude will help on being healthy after a break-up. Along with exercise and a gallon of french vanilla ice-cream. It may look unhealthy but trust me. Your body needs it to recover.

    Yay! Now I’m booking a trip going to South Korea! Let’s go far away from here. Lol.

    Oh, really? Where can I enroll for a Yoga class? I definitely want to try that one! I gained too much for stress eating.

  4. Just accept the fact that you’re not for each other. It will help you to live a happy life after your break up. Acceptance is the key to moving on.

    Thanks, Urbanette! Can you give me some tips about where to buy or adopt a puppy here in NJ?

    This is crap. It doesn’t even make sense. If a person really wants to move on, they will.

    Go out, go to a bar to meet some new people. Going out alone is not sad. Believe me, I tried to go out alone, I met wonderful people.

    Oh, I remember when I had my first heartbreak. Dang! It was indeed painful. I felt like, I’m want to die because he left me. Break-ups are really painful ya know.

    It is really hard to start a new life without him. But always remember, you are worth it, you deserve someone better. Breaking up is not the end of the world, it is just a new beginning to start with all by yourself.
