Whether it's with a tradie on Tinder or the guy who just made your skinny, weak latte - a little flirting, smiling, chat is good for the soul.
Use your friends
They said they would be there for you, to call them if you needed anything and they meant it. Don't be a lonely martyr - call them, tell them how you're feeling, catch up.
Take care of yourself, treat yourself, you are probably feeling a little tense and without sounding too crass, someone is feeling you up for an hour, that's a win.
Get it in the calendar
If you have a night free each week - plan - for example, book a friend in every third Thursday. For something, anything, just get some activities in the calendar.
Whether it is a run, yoga or a regular gym session (get a buddy and a regular date) keep moving. You won't feel like it, you'll be tired and feeling low but it will be worth it. Those endorphins are delicious plus you'll feel great and look amazing.
Work towards a goal
A race, a project, a weight. Something that you can focus on and celebrate when you achieve it.
Try something new
Sailing, paddle boarding, running, crocheting, stand up comedy! Try something new, even if it is to prove to yourself that you are a big, bit special and can do something you never thought you could..... and you are likely to meet new people.
If you get asked, go. Whether it is a blind date or with a group of friends, do it, you'll feel better and its good practice. Practice? Yep, socialising with new people or person takes practice, even if it is working out who buys the next round.
Watch a Ryan Gosling film
For no reason other than he’s really hot. You can also alternate it with a Ryan Reynolds film. This is a perfect example of when ‘two Ryan’s definitely make a right’.
I’m busy crocheting a cover for my paddle board whilst I wait for Ryan to finish my massage...... but in the meantime, I would love to hear some of your suggestions for the MMSL.
