How Do You Get Over Heartbreak? We Talk Breakups and True Love with Our Girl Tenley
When you’re struggling with a tough breakup, looking to vent about a disastrous date, or just need a little advice about your bae, your girlfriends are always there to listen…and open up the wine. Our girl Tenley, creator of the blog Sweet & Free Life, is the best at giving relationship advice. She’s learned so much from her “love career,” as she teasingly calls it, and she’s sharing her wisdom with all of us in this Wine Not Wednesday chat.
After a divorce, Tenley opened herself up to a new experience and went on The Bachelor. (Karena’s fave show!! 🌹) Through that journey, she learned more about what she was looking for in a relationship. Now, she’s found the love of her life, Taylor! She calls him the dreamiest man ever (aww). Through all of this, even her tough times, Tenley has always kept such a positive, inspiring attitude.
For all you girls who may be going through a heartbreak, just know that we’re here for you. We’re sharing some of our best advice for coming out stronger!
Take care of yourself
This is the perfect time to prioritize YOU! After a breakup, it can be tempting to go right for the ice cream and Netflix! But sticking to a health and wellness routine will help you feel confident and in control during a difficult time. Journal about your feelings, what you learned from the relationship, and what you want re-focus on now. Visualize yourself in a few months after the breakup and write down what you see. Putting words on paper is so powerful! Throw your energy into your fave HIIT workouts. Exercise will release those feel-good endorphins. And sticking to the body-loving recipes in the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan will also keep you feeling energized and happy.
