If you have recently broken up with someone you might be feeling sad. Some people feel heartbroken after a break-up and it might feel as if the pain will never go away. One of the reasons some people feel so bad after a break-up is because they feel a sense of loss, rejection, and betrayal. When we feel this way, the stress hormone cortisol is released. This can leave us feeling as if we need to fight or flee.

How to Ease Heart Ache

Accept how you feel – It can be hard to accept how you feel, but it’s important that you do. Once you accept that you are heartbroken you can start to process your feelings. It is ok to feel sad. 

Allow yourself to grieve – While you might be tempted to hold things together, remember that you are allowed to grieve. Ask for support if you need it. You can get help from friends, family, and even support groups in Barlby and the surrounding areas. 

Do some exercise – Exercise can help you to deal with how you’re feeling. You don’t need to do a lot of exercise unless you feel inclined to. When you exercise, your cortisol levels go down and you can begin to feel better. 

Distract yourself – A good way to ease how you’re feeling is by distracting yourself. Try to redirect your thoughts so you don’t dwell on your heartache quite so much.
