Unfriend him, unfollow him, and delete him from your chat list. You don’t want a pop-up reminder of your relationship every time you sign on.
According to reports, Taylor Swift has split from her bf Conor Kennedy. Apparently distance played a role and they’re both “fine” about it. But no matter how it goes down, breakups are no joke. We spoke with relationship therapist Rachel A. Sussman, author of The Breakup Bible, for her tips on how regular girls can survive a split like an A-lister.
Strip Your Sheets.
Buying all new bedding gets rid of bad bedroom energy from your room and helps you start fresh, says Sussman.
Pump your mood with a Zumba or boot camp class at your gym, then switch to yoga or Pilates at night to help you relax. And consider the amazing body you’ll have in a few short weeks.
Indulge at the makeup counter.
Obsess over the breakup…for 15 minutes.
Go on a 30-day cleanse.
Let your friends know what you need.
Whether you want to go out for a round of cocktails or are swearing off men until 2013, make sure your friends are clear on how they can help you deal. (Because if you really just want to chill solo, that Single Girls Night Out they’re planning to revive your spirit is really gonna suck.)
Boost your ego.
Have face time with a furry friend.
Take a fabulous trip.
