7 Things You Can Do Instead Of Texting Your Ex
Breakups suck! No matter how amicable it was or nasty, it’s always hard to walk away from a relationship. You might find yourself looking back at it with rose-tinted glasses. Cue: carefully planned accidental texts and not-so-subtle holiday wishes to your ex. I have been there and it ain’t pretty.
You get used to texting someone constantly when in a relationship. So, it’s natural to feel the urge to text your ex. But there are many things you can do instead of texting your ex. ‘Coz believe me nothing good comes out of it.
Do A Girls’ Night
No one has more patience to hear your rant about your ex than your girlfriends. So, instead of sending ‘I miss you’ to your ex, tell your girls—I love you. Plan a night out, put on your fanciest outfits and paint the town red!
Time To Hit The Gym
Feel like curling up in your bed, type a long text to your ex and tell him you are hurt. There’s another way to let out that anger. It’s time to get up from your couch and hit the gym. It is a proven fact that a workout helps reduce stress levels, gain confidence and makes you feel better instantly. What’s better than posting the revenge bod on the ‘Gram?
Self-Care Sesh FTW
Okay, you have too much time to overthink every thing. Why not put this time to better use and treat yourself? You can do a spa day or put on a hair mask, light some candles and listen to good music. The world is your oyster!
Netflix & Chill (Alone)
The best thing you can do to fight the urge to text your ex is to distract yourself by watching your favourite shows. If you are confused about what to watch, we have the whole list here. There is nothing a good movie sesh can’t fix. Get your chill on, girl!
Cook For Yourself Or Your Loved Ones
Pretty much everyone would agree to the fact that cooking is therapeutic. It occupies your time and makes you feel empowered. Invite your friends and fam for dinner and show off your skills!
Start A DIY Project
Get creative! There are millions of DIY home decor projects that you can try. From making a dream catcher to painting your walls, there is so much you can do. Don’t be afraid of making a mess ‘coz it’s defs better than an emotional mess.
Take A Nap
My mom used to tell me when nothing goes your way, take a nap! This advice has worked well for me especially when I am hatching up a plan to cause chaos. Instead of dropping that unsolicited text to an ex, recharge yourself with a long nap.
Remember, it is okay to check up on someone who was a part of your life. But fight that itch! You’ll thank me later for it.
