My best advice is to physically move. When I'm sad or depressed I often don't want to do anything, but if I force myself to take a walk, play Just Dance (or dance by myself in my room), or move my body somehow, it always helps improve my mood.

I know sometimes people want to stay friends after a romantic or sexual relationship ends, but I've found that I need at least some time (could be a couple of weeks to several months) of not talking to or seeing my ex (if possible) for a while so that I can get back into doing my own thing and have a chance to heal.

I also love watching my favorite movies and spending more time with my friends -- that helped me recover from breakups in the past. And don't be afraid to ask a close friend to just listen and not give advice...
