3 core tactics to get over a break up really fast? - ARTICLE

The first essential strategy is damage control.

You have 3 essential life areas you must protect when a break up hits you:
  • Your career
  • Your heath
  • Your social life
What does that mean?

It means that a break up can have a devastating snowball effect and negatively impact on these other areas of your life.

Protect yourself!

Realize that your life is under attack and shift to battle mode!

This is a fight for survival and emotional victory!

PROTECT YOUR CAREER
  • Stay 100% professional
  • Don't bring your personal break up issues to work
  • Don't talk about it
  • Stay focused on what you are paid for.
PROTECT YOUR HEALTH
  • Get enough sleep
  • Hit the gym
  • Stay fit
  • Eat healthy
  • Avoid alcohol or drugs 
Your core guidelines for wellness and vitality are always the same but when a break up hits you, the risk of tapping in unhealthy patterns is way higher.

You might feel like you run out of will power and stop fighting.

Don't let that happen!

Wake up and fight back!

POWER UP YOUR SOCIAL LIFE
  • Don't isolate yourself
  • Go out
  • Say yes to invitations
These tactics are essential!

Connecting with others will take your mind off the break up

When you meet new people, don't bring up your break up in conversations.

Focus on fun things instead.

If you need to share about your break up, select a special time with a close friend, a coach or therapist.

This gives you a safe space to dive into it, get fresh perspectives and a solid power kick.
