A break-up can literally lead to a mental breakdown for many. From feeling depressed to crying endlessly it is a difficult situation to deal with it. “It is best to remain friends and keep talking to each other as it makes it easier to deal with the void that comes in,” says Sarthak Kaushal, 24, who broke up with his girlfriend of one year, two weeks ago.
For some, indulging in comforting food items makes it easy. “I binged on chocolates as they helped me feel happy. Though I ended up gaining weight, I had stopped torturing myself,” says Manya Sharma, a student of Delhi University.
For some, the key to getting through the difficult patch is to be out of the house, mix with different people and have fun. “After my break up, I used to hangout with my friends, did retail therapy and ensured that I was never idle to think much about him,” says Divya Chugh, 24, a marketing executive.
“Also, listen to your favourite music but nothing that can get you nostalgic, and join dance classes.”
