Find a Hobby
Find a hobby and remain busy. Gardening, swimming, fishing, skiing, hiking and painting can be very helpful to feel good about yourself. It gives an outlet for creativity and a way for the mind to refocus on something that is not your ex. Take a college course, a cooking class, or start volunteering if you don’t have a hobby. The point is to channel energies somewhere else by doing something positive for you or for others. Don’t go overboard and burn yourself out by remaining busy, and then it will be counterproductive. However, it is better to be occupied during this time, just keep it balanced. Maybe you will meet a new spouse when you are out trying new things.
