Have you been broken-heaterted? How to stop crying over your ex every day

Breaking up is never easy. While crying is a natural and necessary response, you need to learn to live without your partner.

In this particular article, we are going to discuss about ways to stop the urge to cry over your ex partner

1. Remove trigger items.

A trigger is something that will cause an emotional reaction when you see/hear/or smell it and will remind you of your ex.[4] It could be anything from a piece of clothing or a bottle of perfume or cologne, certain music or songs, notes, drawings, ticket stubs, photographs – anything that reminds you of your ex. Put away, donate, or dispose of these things. Removing triggers will help you move forward and heal, as the reaction to a trigger item is often involuntary. You could be feeling great and positive and then smell your ex's perfume and experience the pain anew. While you might want to keep some mementos, put these in a box and out of sight. If you used to live with your ex, consider rearranging your furniture or change out the soft furnishings. Simplify the things in your home and metaphorically make space for the new to come in.

2.Remove the person from your social media and contact lists. Unless you broke up on very good terms, consider “de-friending” your ex on Facebook or putting him/her on limited profile. Seeing constant updates about your ex will not make you feel better and might bring on tears. You also might consider removing his/her contact information from your phone. This will prevent you from texting or calling the person during moments of weakness.

3. Practice deep breathing

When you feel like another bout of crying is coming, try breathing very deeply from your diaphragm. Breathe in for a count of five and then exhale for five seconds, making a “ts” sound. This process will calm your body.See Stop Yourself from Crying for more physical tips on how to stop crying.Try the 4-7-8 breathing technique, where you breathe through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds, and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. Repeat this exercise 3-4 times in a row.

3. Smile

Although this sounds very simple, studies have shown that by making positive facial expressions, people can actually feel happier.Even though you might feel like crying, smile and see if you feel better.
