A pleasant day to all, I just want to find out what measures do you consider in order for you to relax and forgot the pain of having a broken heart. Hence, it is really hard to be in this situation. Wherein, you will gonna experienced almost all the pain, heartaches and somehow feel pity to yourself because of the pride that you have swallowed during your relationship with him. Nevertheless, as they say, this is not the end of the world. However, for me, it is not as simple as it is. But, what shall I do. Is there any quick way of relaxation to forget the pain of having a broken heart?

Hi there.:) Honestly speaking, when you are heart broken it is difficlut to relax or even think of wanting to relax. You just want to be left alone and it will take a lot of courage to get up and go out to relax. But often times, since it isn't indeed the end of the world we muster the courage to find a way to relax. As for me, I'd go malling, enjoy my favorite movie and enjoy a favorite dish. I'd also buy magazines and reading materials i am so interested of reading. This will help my mind occupied and avoid thinking how heart broken I am. This works and it will surely help make you fell a lot better. :) Go to church, too and cry your heart's out to God....

Heal of a broken heart should be loved more..heart has to be given an heal, a peace and support. To focus on a different activity, work and giving heart a time to rest itself out of all sorrows.

Usually right now my best divertion would be singing, playing guitar and recording. I played guitar and sing whole heartedly basing from the experiences I have and at the end of the day, I end up really enjoying myself and kind of forgetting I`m hurt from time to time. Music replenishes my soul and heals my wounds at some point. It makes me realize I`m worth of a person than being on the position that I pity myself because of the hurt cause by my breakups.

Well for relaxness from a tension or any hard situaion one must first leave that place in my opinion. then try to forget whatever happend. remember the god. meet to friends and share a light party. if someone ur close friend then share the topic with hhim/her. it is also a good idea. overall try to make ur self busy in some other works. and forget the accident. and enjoy.

breaking up from a relationship is hurting. it is so painful. but, life is like that. we are in pain because we love. we have to move on.. right? but, how can we move on? how can we relax? what i did, i let the pain out! i cried hard and cried and cried. it's about 4-5 hours (well, that's my coping mechanism on how to let go of hurt). then after, i made myself busy either in work or at home. i always have companions with me everywhere i go, my friends, my mother, my sisters.

I think if you keep yourself busy in some activities and do not allow your mind to remain ideal, you can forget about broken heart or its related pain. It takes time to overcome some sad experiences in our lives and it is said that 'time is a great heeler'. All the best.

Instead of spending your time eating junk food and things like that, I would advise that you try to shape up and start eating more healthily. You would feel much, much better if you turned the end of a relationship into something positive rather than sinking down and admitting defeat.

I have been a brokenhearted too...and I know it's way easier giving advices than do it to on your own when the situation calls for it.. But the only thing that can help you my friend is time.., Time heals everything..,and it takes a lot of time.. You will have to live with the pain everyday.., The pain is not going to be easy to deal wiht.., so do your best to divert your attention.., go out and spend time with friends.., enjoy life.., avoid reminiscing.., especially when you're along.., avoid going to places that will remind you of him.., and don't listen to songs that will refresh memories..=)

For me to have a vacation in another place and talk to a friend about your matter so that your heart is exert time and the effort to forgive and proceed you life ahead.

First, I believe you should let yourself feel the pain for a while. Of course this is not the end of the world and you forget this soon. Life goes on and you'll go on, too. You just need some time to get over it, that's the case :)

If you're broken hearted, it would be nice to clean out the closet and get rid of the clothes that you think are out of fashion. Go shopping and have a full-body massage. Upgrade yourself from beautiful to fabulously beautiful and to reconnect with your own self without any distractions.

I would take as much time as you need to scream, cry and vent. Then do some activities with others that would allow you to keep your mind off the person. Tell yourself everyday that you made it through another day. Outside of that time is all that truly rids of such pain.

getting over a failed relationship would be hard and will definitely needs time. However, you can seek company of your trusted friends, talk about how you feel with them and then find time to go out with them. Take a vacation out of town, see places you haven't been before. Most of all have time for prayers, ask that the Lord will give you strength to face the ongoing pain until the pain is alleviated completely
