A breakup can be a life-altering event and one that triggers feelings of grief and anxiousness.

Here are a few ways to deal with a breakup:

1. Take time to heal: Allow yourself time to feel your emotions. It's OK to cry, to be sensitive, and not be productive.

2. Don't take any drastic steps: Keep an eye on yourself and stay away from any extreme behaviour or anything that doesn't feel like you.

3. Take a break from social media: And resist the temptation to stalk your ex!

4. Engage in a hobby

5. Maintain a schedule

6. And very important, reach out to family and friends
