How to be happy again after a breakup

Whenever we experience a breakup, it can be hard to believe that there is light on the other side of the tunnel.

But there is. I have been there and made it to the other side.

However, how do you keep afloat when you don’t see the light yet? How do you make yourself feel better again after a break up?

In this post, I’m sharing three tips that will help you feel happy again while you are moving on from an ex.

Look for Feel-Good experiences

Surround yourself with people that embody the joy you are looking for. Rather than locking yourself into a dark room and hoping for the day to pass, gather all your strength and get out of the house.

Find activities, people, and experiences that you know will bring you joy, such as your favorite hobby, working out, or just a good ole dance party.

By engaging in feel-good experienced you allow your body to release endorphins that will give your body a much-needed boost.

Start a manifestation practice

I am an absolute fan of manifestation. I believe that we have the power to co-create our lives with God by being intentional about what we envision, speak, and attract into our lives. From business to vacations, to love.

Because the truth is, if you are not intentional about your life, you will have to take what life gives you. And that is oftentimes lemons.

There are many ways to kickstart manifestation. You can journal, script, visualize, or use other tools to tap into your deepest desires.

But the one thing I wear by to lift your mood instantly is visualization. By visualizing a joyful, happy, and peaceful you, you are instantly releasing the emotions that you need to attain that state.

And you will notice that right after your visualization you start to feel good and happy. Keep practicing visualization and watch your mood get better.

4. Start believing in love again

Can I be honest with you? The main reason why we hold on to ex-boyfriends is that we think they are the only ones that will ever be able to love us. You fear that he was your last shot at love and ask yourself "What if I never find love like that again?"

The funny thing is that the moment you stop thinking that and understand that there is love for you in the world your attachment to him lessens.

So the most effective way to let go of an ex is by taking a step forward. Start envisioning the love you desire and emerge yourself in those feelings.

Remember that if your ex has moved on but you still love him, chances are high that he does not love you anymore. So, you have to break all the ties to him and find someone that loves you back.
