If you think your business isn’t affected by your personal life....you are NUTS!  

It is every woman’s FUNKY TO FABULOUS!

As a business coach, I am seeing how intertwined a clients personal and professional life is.  

I went through a break up not too long ago...and want to share some  

Getting Over The Break Up tips      

broken heart

Mending a broken heart requires that you change habits. Recent scientific studies show that you need to change the neuro pathways in your brain in order to forget that past love- and redirect yourself toward your new life.  

One Break Up Is Enough

If it’s over- it’s over.  

You make mending your broken heart tougher if you stay in contact.

Whatever you do- do NOT contact him.

Get Plenty of Vitamin G

Studies show that in times of stress women gain strength, comfort from the company of other women. Girl Time is so important that I call it Vitamin G. (lots of science to back this up!)  

Call girlfriends and fill up ‘couple time’ with Vitamin G "Girl Time"  

Alone time is the toughest time when you are mending. (It’s natural to start thinking of Mr. Almost Right) Here are some Turnaround Techniques to use to stop from sliding into a pit  

Mend Through Giving

Get busy-giving to others. Studies show that there is a "Helpers High" (with the same endorphin lift that runners get from exercise) that comes when you volunteer and help others less fortunate. Volunteering will help you:

        

  • fill up with self esteem and be

        

  •     

  • reminded of how valuable you are

        

  •     

  • see that others have challenges bigger than yours

        

  •     

  • have a more positive attitude

    • I always felt like when/if it ever happened to me, i would be just fine. But when it did, it was the most difficult thing for me to live through.

      I felt like my world came to an end, but soon I realized that I lead my life and i can change/advance myself. So I did, and I overcame this obstacle in my life.

    • Just got dumped while driving through rush hour traffic on my way to work this morning.  I was so worried about crying at work I left after 2 hours.  I have a huge hole in my heart right now.

    • It’s been two weeks since the break up. The first was hard, especially sinc this was the first relationship since my divorce. I have not been in a relationship since 2006. But since I try my best to see the cup half full, I looked at all his positives, and the negatives.  There was room for improvement and I have decided that just setteling to have a man and be in a relationship would be more harmful to me.

      I try to see the bright side of this also, I still have work and healing to do on my side of being a partner in a relationship also. He is a widower who still needs time to heal and I am a divorcee who also needs time to heal.

      I see this relationship as a stepping stone to the next relationship and that this time alone, helps me to reflect and really see and decided what if anything I want in my next relationship or if I choose to stay single for awhile longer. Either way I know a way is being made for my happiness.

    • I feel as if I have done something wrong but I know I have not.  It will be very hard to get through and it has been so hard for me not to try to contact him.  I need to focus on myself now and not worry about him.  I could not give him the time that he needed.  As a single parent of a 5 year old my time is limited.  He could not handle that.  I deserve better and my child deserves much better
