In life, we often think of mistakes we made and wither a lot of time in regretting it. But instead, try to remember the beautiful things that ever happened in your life. If you just broke up with your girl, think of the good memories you made, things you laughed over and things you learned from that person. Accepting things is the best way of moving on.

4. Create a Happy Place for Yourself
Re-make your room in the best way you like it. Decorate it the way that suits your mood and make you feel attached to your room. Change the old bed sheets with new one of your favorite color, hang the picture of your favorite celebrity, bring a speaker and play the music or whatever you wish.
