Self Care Ideas:
Get a hobby. Take a course at a local college and learn something new. You’ll get out of the house, meet new people, and learn some new information. Or if you enjoy time on your own, take up photography or painting! Hobbies are a great form of self discovery and can boost your mental health!

Work on personal development. If you’re working on reinventing yourself, go all out. Learn to do something new that will enhance your professional or social life.
Update your wardrobe. The clothes you choose to wear say a lot about you and they can make you feel more confident. Maybe you lose a bit of your own personal style sense in your last relationship and need a reboot? Check out Pinterest for some fashion Inspo and have an open mind to try new things! This process is all about self discovery.
Learn to be more assertive. Is it possible to be too assertive? Maybe, but you’re probably not there yet. Being assertive means that you’re willing to share your opinions, wants, and needs. This is attractive to others and will do a lot to enhance your life.
Check out these tips on how to be more assertive to get what you want.
Perfect your listening skills. Listening to people is an art, honestly. Nothing will help your social life and relationships more than perfecting your ability to listen to others rather than just trying to respond. Without these social skills, you could come off as rude, disinterested, and even weird. Stop your brain from searching for the next witty thing to say and learn to pay attention. Social skills can help you land a new job or role, more friends and even a new relationship.
Meet new people. Reinventing yourself requires some new people. What types of people do you admire most? What types of people interest you? Get busy making contact with people you’d like to add to your life. Think about the places you’d find them and use that to your advantage. Get out and be social when you can.
Focus on your daily routine. Break out of your rut. It’s the simple things in your daily routine that can make a big difference in your life. Buy new toothpaste. Take a new route to work. Try a new restaurant for lunch. Get a new hairstyle. Start a journal. Meditate. Drink more water instead of juice or pop. Be friendlier. Change anything you normally do without thinking. New behaviors create a new life. What can you do differently today that you never do?
Check out these healthy daily routine ideas:
Remove the dead weight from your life. Drop the commitments, clothing, items, and people from your life that no longer serve your greater purpose. Everyone gets off course after a few years. Now is the perfect time to clean house. Things that were right for you five years ago may have lost their usefulness.
Get over your breakup by reinventing yourself and focusing on growth. Join a gym and make some new friends. Learn something new. Reinvent yourself into a person you respect and enjoy. Create a life that excites you! Be who you truly want to be.
Use your breakup to your advantage. It might be the best thing that ever happened to you!
