Breakups can bring on intense heartache and stress and nobody really wants to go through them.
But if you’re trying to get over it and want some suggestions about how to make it a little easier, help is at hand.
ABC News has provided six steps to handling a break-up like a celebrity.
First the channel suggests to immediately date someone else. It would be a plus point if it’s someone hotter than your ex.
Finding someone new when you’d otherwise be feeling all icky and vulnerable can help to put you in a better emotional place because rather than sulking in Ugg boots and sweats (which are never ever cute by the way) you’re instead bringing your own sexy back and sharing your awesomeness with someone else, it said.
Or go on tour like Katy Perry did. The actress went promoting a movie and on a world tour while going through a divorce with Russell Brand.
You can write a song or a book about it like Alanis Morissette and Rielle Hunter did.
Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” is perhaps one of the most biting break-up songs ever written. Alanis makes it very clear that she’s not quite over things. But she’s letting it out in a constructive way.
Instead of slashing his tires or making out with his best friend, sometimes you need to just say all the mean/sad/crazy stuff you’re thinking and there’s no reason it shouldn’t be set to music for other people to enjoy.
John Edward’s former mistress, Hunter, wrote a tell-all book about her relationship. Chances are good though that you have far more important things to do, so feel free to blog or tweet or tumble about it instead.
Another way is to give interviews, which is what celebs usually do after a break-up.
Call your best friend and spill it everything.
If it does not work then try changing your look.
For example Britney Spears became super hot again after she broke up with Kevin Federline.
A break up is a great time to experiment in a good way with your look. Head to the gym or get some amazing extensions or just treat yourself to a mani-pedi. It’s kinda cliche but if you look good you do tend to feel better, the channel suggested.
