The first thing you probably have to do is not to blame yourself. It takes two to tango and the reason why your relationship did not work is because of the two of you, partners in a relationship.

A breakup is a stressful time and even nerve-wracking. Relax and take a hot bath. Like being outdoors it can also help you clear the cobwebs in your head.

It would also be beneficial for you to surround yourself with friends after a breakup. Do not be alone. Thus, if you want to get drunk and forget all your troubles, there is someone who could look out for you when the going gets too tough.

Get active, too. At this time, meditation might not be the best activity for you. Try high energy sports such as kick boxing or do a self-defense course.

Let out all your emotions and frustrations. Cry or shout if you have to. Bottling all the emotions inside you is not going to do you any good. At one point, it will all come out bursting like a dam of emotions.

Remove physical objects or any other memory triggers in your home. It's probably one of the first things you have to do so the process of healing is quicker. If there are no reminders of your past, it will be faster to move on.

Other things you can do include letting go of negative emotions you have of the break-up and keeping yourself occupied.
