10 Ways to Get Over Breakups Without Drinking

Getting over breakups can be rough. Instead of dealing with it in a healthy way, some people numb themselves with alcohol consumption. There may be a break up remedy out there, but its not found in a bottle of liquor. Here are things you can do instead.

1. Friends
Having fun with friends could be the ticket to feeling better post breakup. You are free to do whatever you want. Enjoy it.

2. Family
Family’s always there for a shoulder to cry on. Do not hesitate to call or stop by in your time of need.

3. Exercise
Exercising releases endorphins, which make you happy. Plus you will get in shape.

4. Find a Hobby
Have you ever wanted to play guitar or woodcraft? Now’s the time. Not only will it take your mind off the breakup, but you’ll be learning a new skill.

5. Take a Trip
A change of scenery is good to take your mind off a breakup. Even something like going camping can be enough to clear your head.

6. Work On Your To-Do List
Do you have a lot of unfinished business? Now is the time to finish these projects.

7. Move Away
If you’re still living in a home shared with your ex, it can be hard to escape those memories. Finding a new place to live is a good way to start fresh and move on.

8. Join a Club
Being alone at this time can be terrible. Joining a book club or bowling league will keep you busy, and take your mind off the breakup.

9. Get a Pet
You may miss the companionship you had in your relationship, but a cat or dog may fill that void.

10. See Other People
Maybe you are not ready to date, but meeting new people may take your mind off your ex. It could also lead to something more down the line.
