A 30 Day Dump the DUDe Cleanse – How To Reclaim Your Super Power Prowess After Heartbreak
I’m no shrink, but I have been through enough relationships to know when it’s time to take a break from break-ups. Whether we’re the one who got ditched or the one doing the dumping, breaking up is Heart to Do, as in here’s a list of suggestions to get your heart’s spirit back up where it belongs, in no particular order…
Get lost! If you aren’t in a position to take a trip to Machu Picchu and do a lengthy hike to the top of a world famous archaeological site, take a road trip the the next town over and do some ‘I’m a tourist in the next town over’ exploring.
Get real! Write yourself a pep talk letter, purge all those second- (and third- and sixteen-) guessing yourself thoughts that are rattling around in your noggin as to why you “miss him already!” Type it out or better yet, get a piece of fancy (preferably recycled) paper and hand cramp the old fashioned way until you’ve made a case for yourself. Save it for a reminder!
Get fresh air! A walk, a bike ride, a motorbike ride (!), a hike–go where there are no exhaust fumes.
Get a motorcycle licence. Seriously, this is so mid-life crisis and worth it! Even if you never get an actual bike, it still works (trust me).
Take yourself on a solo date. Yep, all this so-getting-out-of-my-comfort-zone stuff will pay off in pumped up self-esteem. (Leave the pumps and pearls at home if you don’t want to feel like a dork, go for low key.) (Then again, if you’ve got the cajones-that’s Spanish for balls-then go for it, girl!)
