Summer gives a lot of play in romantic relationships: beach afternoons, romantic sunsets, nights under the stars, trips, free time and new social circles in more relaxed atmospheres than usual. However, these same points in favor of arrows and romantic love play against many couple relationships, which are affected during the summer, either by separation or by excessive cohabitation. Today we will talk in this blog about health consequences of a sentimental breakupat the same time that the Mental Health specialists of the Ribera health group give us some keys to help us overcome the separation of the couple
Because the breakup of a relationship is not usually easy, but sometimes it can lead to anxiety problems, phobias, tachycardia, sweating, insomnia, nightmares, jealousy crises and, even in more extreme situations, disorders of adaptation
All mental health specialists in hospitals Riverside they compare the process of overcoming a sentimental breakup with grieving the “physical” loss of a loved one. We start with the awareness of the moment, we continue with the handling of the process of change, the absorption, until finally, accepting and learning to live in a new world without the person with whom we maintained a relationship.
Being sad or deeply regretting a breakup “is not a disease”, remembers Dr. Manuel García Mayo, psychiatrist of the University Hospital of Torrejón, and therefore, it is not found in any manual of Medicine. Marisa Escribano, psychologist from Vinalopó University Hospital, remember that being affected and feeling sad is not only normal, but the logical response after an emotional loss. “The pain response is the healthiest we can give in the face of a bereavement situation; otherwise, we would not consider this relationship important or it would be pathological”, he explains.
However, feelings of loss that are disproportionate in terms of intensity, dysfunctionality and duration can affect our mental health and require professional help to overcome it. The Ribera hospitals have Mental Health units with prestigious professionals, but, in addition, the health group has an online psychological therapy, Mindswhich facilitates video consultations with professionals and personalized and specific resources to overcome these types of emotional ups and downs and others such as stress and anxiety.
Undoubtedly, a breakup is a more or less long process, which usually includes ups and downs and sometimes even turns out to be painful. But it is important to give yourself time, accept your own feelings and seek the necessary support from family, friends, sports and hobbies to overcome this emotional loss.
Eight tips to turn over after a relationship (and suffer as little as possible)
These are the practical tips given by the professionals of the Ribera group to turn the page after a romantic relationship and suffer as little as possible:
- Zero contact or set limits in the relationship with the ex-partner
- Blocking contact and information through messages and social networks
- Make essential decisions at the beginning, but leave for later those that can wait.
- Accept the pain of loss. Don’t deny your own feelings and share them if we need to.
- Give us time to feel relief after the breakup and, subsequently, joy and excitement for a new life stage.
- Understand each other and act accordingly: there are those who prefer to be alone to overcome the loss and those who do better in the company of friends and family. There is no single magic recipe.
- Don’t let yourself be consumed by negative thoughts of the past or the future such as “I won’t meet anyone the same” or “he never wanted me”. They lead you to nothing.
- Try to turn the situation around to turn it into a process of learning and personal growth.
