Ever heard the phrase “An Idle Mind is The Devil’s Workshop?” At this point of time, an idle mind is your biggest enemy.
In all practicality, it will be impossible for you to sit somewhere and not think about your ex. At the moment, it might feel like the heartache is just too much to bear and thinking about what your ex is doing will just make it worse.
What if they are with someone else?
What if they are over the breakup?
These “what if” questions are as useless as a used condom. They will only make you feel worse. And if you just sit around your house, doing nothing, then you are bound to fall into this endless loop of “what if” questions.
So, in short, you need to go out and do something. If you don’t feel like going out, then do something at home. There are tons of things you can do if you just try to find something to do. Play video games, go jogging, hang out with friends, play an instrument, play golf, go to the gym.
But beware; there are some activities that will make you more prone to thinking about your ex. These activities include drinking too much, eating ice cream and watching a sad romantic movie, eating unhealthy food etc.
It is quite possible that you might have that gut crunching feeling at the moment and don’t feel like doing anything else other than just sitting and thinking about your ex. I know what it feels like. But you have to understand that gut crunching feeling is only going to get worse if you don’t do something to keep your mind off your ex. I know how hard it can be to get yourself out of the sofa and do something that you have no interest in doing at the moment. But trust me, once you get to doing something creative, fun or exciting, you will forget about your ex very quickly and you will be glad you took the effort to do it.
