Well, it’s time to get out of this self deprecating rut and change your life.
The best post breakup advice, regardless if you’re the ‘dumpee’ or ‘dumper’, is to focus on you; your mind, body and soul! One of the best ways to do this is to set regular gym dates! The gym won’t turn you away, it is always willing to ‘have’ you, and most importantly it won’t ever disappoint you.
Still need more convincing as to why you should go to the gym? Read on.

This will lead to gaining more confidence and comfort in your body, while improving your body and mind connection.
2. It Will Help you Feel Happier and More Energetic
Physical activity triggers the brain to produce more “feel good” hormones, which lead to feeling more positive and happy in your everyday life. This will boost your confidence and self esteem. Having more energy and feeling good overall will give you a natural “high on life” feeling. You’ll want to rid your life of unhealthy relationships.
