Exercise: Stop eating those chocolates. Sure they help you ease your pain away but in the long run... whoo boy, those pounds sure add up. Instead of snacking, start exercising. One, it helps create a better image. Two, better confidence. Three, it's scientifically proven to make people happier. Those three reasons should be more than enough to make you start moving, but if they don't, this might: exercising doesn't have to be limited to your house or the gym. Go attend a class, do something you've never done before, have fun (and you might find yourself another guy to ease the memories of the ex away).
Makeover: There's nothing like a good pampering to ease all the troubles away, so splurge! While you're at the spa, stop by the salon and get a new haircut (a new hairstyle, not just a trim). Oh, it's too expensive? Go ask around some hair salons for their training days for their interns or buy a home coloring kit and redo your own hair. Even better, get a group of friends and host a home spa. All you have to do is go online, find some recipes, go grocery shopping (hint: more singles to interact with) and have a fun bonding moment with your friends (if you didn't dump them all when you got a boyfriend).
Wardrobe: Ugh, those outdated outfits… yeah, they have to go. If you like some of them then great, keep them, but if they remind you of your ex or don’t really compliment you…donate them to goodwill. Go shopping (hint: another opportunity) and splurge.. after all that’s what women do best. Once again, if things are too expensive, go to the outlet, sales at the mall, or thrift stores, where you can find one-of-a-kind gems for a one-of-a-kind price.
Scent: If you’ve been wearing that same-old tired perfume, maybe it’s time to give it a proper burial. Splurge (and there is no scrimping on this) on a really nice perfume like Chanel or Gucci, but stay away from garbage or fakes! Go for something more exotic or elegant than the one you used to wear.
Always carry a positive attitude with you. The old cliche: "Beauty comes from within". Yeah, that's a true saying
You might attract a bit more attention from the opposite sex.
Do this for YOU and no one else. If you do this because you want to get your ex back, you will be more heartbroken than before. Trust me.
