Getting over someone after we dated for awhile used to be such an ordeal for me. I'd stay hold up in my small studio apartment playing these sad ass love songs, listening to their voice on my answering machine over and over, then either looking at a picture or some cheap trinket that they brought me. I was pathetic. Thank goodness I moved on from that.
Making some changes in your life is a good way to get over a long relationship; and I don't mean immediately jumping into the dating pool, although some think that's the best cure. I do however believe in huge makeovers after any major breakup and what better place to get over someone then in sunny Los Angeles.
Healing from a broken heart should start from the inside out, so the first activity I would suggest is yoga. From the Valley to the beaches yoga centers are popping up all over the area and can offer meditation and relaxation methods that can sooth anyones weary mind.
If you feel that yoga might be a little to tame for you and you need to work it out, why not try some boxing, martial arts, or self defense classes and if you want to kick them up a notch, go ahead and take one of those photos with you and paste it on one of those bags and go crazy.
Still feel that you have a lot of tension? Why not try a spa. Burke Williams Day Spa is a great place for those deep tissue massages and those muscle relaxing facials. Or if you don't want to spend the money, then buy some helpful tonic items like; scrubs, lotions and elixirs at Sephora or Carol's Daughter and create your own relaxing atmosphere right at home.
Once your insides are taken care of then it's time for a little work on the outside. I would suggest a nice new hair doo, but nothing too drastic and of course shopping is always a winner for me when it comes to healing the broken heart. After all, you might want to stay away from those little outfits that they seemed to love you in so much.
These things are not meant for you to bury or forget your troubles. I believe that in order for us to move on, we need to reevaluate, but after that's done then by all means try these other suggested remedies. Because remember, it's a small world out there and there is nothing more gratifying then bumping into an ex while you're looking fabulous and nothing worse then when you're not!
