Self-care is alwaysimportant, but it's especially important following a breakup, or during any period of heartsickness. "One of the most important things to remember during a breakup is that heartbreak affects your physiology and your neurochemistry," Elle Huerta, CEO and founder of the breakup app Mend, previously told Elite Daily. "Going through a breakup feels like going through withdrawal, so it's really important in the early days to take extra care of yourself." Whether that's sleeping, eating good food, exercising, or whatever else, take time for yourself.
