Most people going through a breakup are constantly reliving and thinking about all the negativity in their lives and within themselves, says clinical hypnotherapist and author Colin Christopher. So, instead of giving up on love or lowering your self-esteem, spend 10 minutes a day reciting positive thoughts to yourself. "For example: 'I am strong, confident, attractive and make a great life partner.'"
Don't jump back into the dating pool so soon. Take some time to recover from your breakup before seeing someone new. "This isn’t a race and only you will know when you’re ready," Christopher says.
