Effective Ways to Moving On after a Break Up

Breakups can be quite difficult especially getting over an ex. Little wonder why it seems hard to start a new relationship. We've heard or seen or even experience first hand the harsh reality of moving on.
 If this period is not well handled there is a large possibility of an individual being emotionally unstable for an extended period.
Therefore, here are practical ways to move on after a breakup.
1.    Accept what happened
Acceptance is the first step to moving ahead, don't try to pick up the broken pieces because you will only get hurt. Also, don't dwell, in the past, this will prevent you from making any form of progress, and it will hurt you more.
2.    Stop communicating with your ex
If you want to get over your ex, then you need to stop talking with him/her. Communication can bring up the old memories which will get you trapped wishing things didn't end. Therefore, it is important you stop any form of communication and stop tracking down your ex through any social media platform. 
3.    Be active
I understand you only want to stay locked in the room. However, this won't help you to forget, so, go out and meet people, stay active by exercising.
4.    Improve yourself
You are now single; this is the best time to do things you wish to do. You can now travel around the world, go for the extra course which will help build you career and also will help build your self-confidence that has been bruised in your previous relationship. You can change your look if you want to, go to a spa, the bottom line is that you should have fun and enjoy life.
5.    Learn to love again
Yes, your previous relationship left you really hurt, and you don't believe in love again. However, this should not be the case; you should learn to love because this is the effective way to get over your ex. Try not to prevent your heart from loving again. Always know that there is someone who is right for you, someone who will be thankful to have you, someone who will treasure and respect you more than anyone else.
