It is not easy to handle when any significant relationship ends. No matter whether you wanted it or not, a committed and long-term relationship can turn your whole world upside down if it breaks up. There are all sorts of upsetting and painful feelings that get triggered. But do not worry. There are things that you can be done so that you come out of this difficult time without much damage.

Tips to Cope with Stress after Break Up

Stress is an inseparable part of break ups, fights and all ups and downs in life. Read on to find some helpful tips for coping with stress after break up.

Divert your Mind

The best thing that you can do is to divert your attention and concentrate on your hobbies and try to develop them.

Start new Activities

Try to join a gym or start an exercise routine as that it can help you calm down as well as help you remain fit too. If you will become fit and healthy, it will be beneficial for you in the long run.

Chat with Friends

Hang out with friends that can really help you forget about everything. Choose the friends that care for you and they will do their best to bring a smile on your face. It is also better to prefer the friend whose company makes you happy and you enjoy the most instead of going in the crowd of friends. It can even work in the opposite way and you may feel more depressed and lonely.

Do not Binge

Do not ever binge into drinking or eating a lot. Drinking alcohol will only worsen your condition and if you seek refuge in eating anything and everything you will end up having severe health problems.

Stay Safe

Stay safe always, both physically and emotionally. This is very important because you may find some selfish individuals coming near you if they come to know about your breakup. Do not let them take undue advantage of your condition.

Take your own Time

Take your own time to get recharged. Think positively and practically. Analyze the relationship that ended and try to forget about it.

Build your Self Esteem

Try to build up your self-esteem. Take professional help if needed. There is nothing wrong to consult a specialist if you are not able to cope with the stress of the breakup.

Many think that why a breakup hurts so much even if they wanted or expected it to happen since long time. The main reason is that the breakup represents the loss and leaves you lonely for the time being. You feel that the dreams and commitments that you shared has ended and this triggers the pain. In such situation, if you feel like crying do not stop it. This will help you get out of the stress easily.

Romantic relationships initiate with a high note of excitement and take you to lots of future planning together. When you fail to get these dreams off the ground and the relationship fails, there is profound disappointment, grief and stress experienced. In fact, everything gets disturbed, your routine, your home, your duties, responsibilities, friends and relatives and even your priorities after the breakup.

However, you have to restart your life now. You can learn about relationships and everything related to it by this breakup. You need to be honest when you are going through this heal up process. Do not deny if you feel depressed. Get along in something exciting but never get into any other relationship just because you want a shoulder to cry.

Comments:   It is very difficult to cope with stress after break up. After break up the stress remains for longer time and as such it becomes difficult to cope with stress. Chitchatting with friends or close ones help a lot to overcome the stress. However, some times break from work may also help to overcome the situation and get normal.

Comments:   Overcoming stress after break up is not so easy. If the relationship has lasted for 4 to 5 years, it is very difficult to forget that person and both of them are extremely hurt after break up. It is very difficult to move on when a very close person hurts you. But there is no other way out other than moving on.

Comments:   After a break up you need lot of time to get over it. However, it is not good to get in another relationship if you break up with somebody. It is not correct to take such step and as such the person should give himself or herself lot of time and think about it rather than getting into another relationship.

Comments:   i was came from a painful break up. i felts like im useless. i really loved my boy friend. in every fight that we had i always say sorry even its not my fault, i ate my pride because i want everything to be fixed as soon as possible. but since its always happened, i get tired. although its painful since i loved him, i chose to set him free. not for him but for myself, i just realized life is too short to be miserable. theres other man who deserves my love. its tough and hard to move on, but i believe its mind motivation. i stop thinking about him and avoid seing stuffs that reminds me of him, and the greatest thing i did, i resign since were both working on the same company. i think im starting to be ok. thanks to God.

Comments:   I just recently broke up with my 4year relationship. He broke up with me with just one text message. It was bound to happen anyway, he had so many secrets. I was not able to accept it right away, in fact I had even denied the situation right after. Things went from bad to worst and it stress me a lot. I developed hyperthyroidism just a month after that, so had to undergo radiation therapy. I wished I never met him.

Name: Justin
City:   Chicago
Comments:   I was dumped a month and a half ago and it seems harder now than initially. At first I thought she might come back or that I would get over it quickly but I haven´ t. We were together for almost 6 years and she was my first love. The pain I feel is pure emptiness and heartache. I really miss her because I always put her as my number 1 person in my priorities. She was my best friend even though the relationship had ups and downs. She said that she just doesn´ t feel the same as she used to and she feels like we are more just friends. She has had many boyfriends before me and has broken up with me before and dated someone else during the 1 month breakup we had last time. I´ m sure she´ s out with other guys now and enjoying her freespirited, spontaneous ways. I don´ t know what to do. I haven´ t contacted her since the breakup. I don´ t know if I´ ll find anyone else or that I even want to. I pray for the best for her. I´ m not mad at her, I´ m just so hurt because I loved her and by her being in my life I felt so much more at ease about myself. I have self esteem issues because of my adult acne and thinking of trying to move on is just so stressful. I don´ t think I would take her back even if she came back because I know that she doesn´ t really love me any more. I would only be hurting myself even more by doing so. I hate to speak sadly but maybe I should just try to accept the fact that this was supposed to happen and I am supposed to be alone. I pray the pain will lift soon and I´ ll stop thinking about her all the time. I can´ t seem to stop thinking about her. This is the most painful experience I´ ve had to go through in my life.
