How To Stay Productive When Nursing A Breakup

Breakups are painful to navigate and usually, you just don’t want to deal with anything else. Your mind is clouded by a lot of things and it’s hard to find some kind of calm in the storm so you can do whatever work you need to complete everyday. Your emotional distress can cause your priorities to change which usually negatively affects your productivity.

1. Get out of your house

With how you’re feeling, you would be tempted to take a sick leave or work from home which will end up with you sulking and going through your partner’s social media pages and wallowing in self pity and in the end, no real work will be done. If you have work to do, go do it. If you don’t, stay out of your house and force yourself to do other stuff even if they don’t feel fulfilling.

2. Adjust your expectations of your performance

You’re in an emotional turmoil and so you cannot expect yourself to work at full capacity and achieve the goals you would have gotten when you were okay. Set realistic and tangible goals each day while factoring in your emotional situation and make sure you hit those goals. Focusing on them may be one of the ways you’ll get over the pain.

3. Engage in self care

In these times you may forget to eat, you may not feel like taking care of yourself, all you want to do is to be in your room and sulk all day but you need to make an extra effort to care for yourself. It’s going to be hard but you need to do it even if it means setting reminders every now and then to eat or drink water or even bath.

4. Reconnect with others

Not just anyone but people you know who genuinely care for you. Just so they can be there to support you with their presences and make sure you don’t do anything silly. They can support you so you reach your goals at the end of the day.
