Mending A Broken Heart with Exercise: How to Look and Feel Lovely After Heartbreak


Heartbreak is an emotional problem, so how will exercise help you? Most people do not recognize the mind-body connection. Our minds and bodies are connected in the way we respond to stress and emotional pain. Any stress you feel in your mind, you also will feel in your body. Any stress you feel in your body, you will definitely feel in your mind. No doubt about it.

Exercise is one of the simplest ways to help in mending a broken heart. Exercise allows you to release all of that tension in your body and pumps your brain with endorphins. Besides that, exercise also allows you to shed any unwanted pounds and helps with your physical appearance. This allows you to boost your confidence and makes you feel good about yourself.

What Exercise Can Do For Your Heartbreak

You’re hurting emotionally and most likely don’t want to leave your bedroom. What can exercise really do to relieve the pain you feel right now?

How Exercise Helps Mend Your Broken Heart:

  • Exercise helps you fight depression
  • Exercise gives you energy
  • Exercise helps your brain produce those “feel-good” hormones
  • Exercise allows you to be more social
  • Exercise boosts your confidence
  • Exercise allows your brain to deal with stress better

These benefits of exercise are good for your overall health and emotional well-being. The best benefit of exercise is that it makes you look better.  When you look better, you feel better. When you feel better, you do better.  Exercise is one of the fastest ways to improve your looks, overall health and spirit. Your clothes will fit better.  Your confidence will skyrocket. People in your inner circle will start to notice the improvement in your body and compliment you.  Your heartbreak will seem insignificant and you will begin to move on.

My Experience with Exercise After A Broken Heart

After my break up, exercising was the last thing on my mind. I really wanted to stay in bed as much as I possibly could.  Eventually, I started to get back into my routine and workout regularly again. I also started eating better, not really over doing it, but just watching what I ate and taking better care of myself. Before I knew it, I had lost about 20 lbs in a little less than 2 months.

I will never forget when I first saw my ex some months after our break up. The expression on his face said it all. He was shocked to see how good I looked. 20 lbs is a lot of weight to lose and makes a great difference in your appearance. I felt so powerful and confident knowing that I had improved myself and made my ex-boyfriend feel like a fool for dumping me. I also felt great when all of a sudden men were approaching me left and right. My confidence shined through and that really helped me move on after my break up.

Final Thoughts

Mending a broken heart can be taxing on your body. Exercise is one of the best ways to fight that stress and release all of those unwanted emotions that have been building up since your break up.

You don’t have to start off with strenuous exercise. You can start off by taking a walk around the block for 20 minutes. Start with something small and build your way up. No one said that you had to mend your broken heart in one exercise session.

Remember, this about making you feel good as fast as possible. Trust me, just the sheer feeling of getting out and moving around will make a huge difference in the way you feel right now. So, get up and get moving!

~Here’s to your healing!
