Breaking up is hard to do, so here's the best way to make it as easy as possible.
According to a new study from the University of Colorado, Boulder, there is a scientifically-proven method for getting over your ex: fake it 'til you make it, meaning act like you're over your ex until you actually are.
Until then, live your best life: hit the gym, take a trip, find a new hobby.
Senior study author Tor Wagner explains, "Just the fact that you’re doing something for yourself and engaging in something that gives you hope may have an impact." So after your next breakup, just remember to trick your brain into getting over it until you actually do. Science says it’ll work.
