Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift
Selena turned to her bff Taylor for comfort after breaking up with Justin Bieber. Excellent idea! Hanging out with your best buds is pretty much a fool-proof way of feeling better immediately after a bad breakup... at least for a few hours.
Indulge! Not the healthiest thing, we admit. Still, there is something super satisfying about indulging in snacks you don't let yourself have on a regular basis. Here, Amanda Seyfried enjoys a simple vanilla ice cream cone, but we prefer a variety of sweet and salty snacks, our sofa and the remote control within reach. Plus, the inevitable stomachache gives you something else to focus on.
Spend time with your furry friends! After a bad breakup (or anything bad, really) the most comforting thing can be hanging out with your pet, who provides unconditional love! Here, Olivia Palermo goes for a walk with her adorable pooch in NYC.
Go shopping! Your body's in shape, you're feeling better than ever, and you want to celebrate, right? Treat yourself to some new clothes, girl! Here, Eva Longoria looks mighty happy with her purchase from Zadig and Voltaire, but rest assured that no matter what your budget or guilty pleasure might be, retail therapy works every time.
Hit the gym! You can only veg out for so long, right? You eventually get to the point where you crave killer legs and abs (like Vanessa Hudgens') more than Doritos and cheesecake. Besides, getting some exercise is a way to focus on yourself, something you might not have been doing a lot of in that pesky relationship you were having.
Get a new look! Just do it. Be daring. Women have been changing up their hairstyle after breakups since practically the beginning of time (we venture to guess). Snooki recently traded her dark tresses for this look-at-me red, and we love it! It looks good and it tells everyone that Snooki still has the same fun personality she had before becoming a mom. Not that we ever doubted it.
