GL is here to say yes, we
totes believe you can banish that boy from your brain. Ready to be so over it? Let's get started.
Sometimes all you
can think about is a certain cutie and it's the greatest thing ever.
But other times it's like, dude, get out of my head! How's a girl
supposed to just stop thinking about an ex or a crush who doesn't feel
the same way? Well, it can be tough, but
Go on a run, crank
up your fave jams and dance, or follow a yoga tutorial video. A little
exercise can go a long way to making you feel a whole lot better. Get
your blood flowing and re-energize with some bod-loving workouts. After
all, isn't the key to a healthy heart... exercise?
Find a page-turner
Ask your friends,
check in with your school librarian, or hit up the GL Book Club
recommendations. Delve into an awesome novel that distracts you with
adventures, mysteries and romances from other realms. If you love what
you're reading, encourage your friends to read it too so you have book
Be a crafty queen
Get creative and
find a DIY activity to complete. Let your inner artist shine and make
something you're proud of. The satisfaction of completing a project,
even a small one, is an instant mood-booster. Do something you love to
do, whether it's painting, practicing your future architecture skills,
baking or trying out a new mani.
Chillax with friends
Go on a hike,
organize a movie night, hit up the bowling lanes, or meet at a coffee
shop with a group of guys and girls who make you smile. Don't let the
one boy bummin' you out make you forget about all the fab friends you
have. Start texting everyone, hangout sesh tonight!
Make some music
To avoid hearing
songs on the radio that remind you of you-know-who (and we're not
talkin' about Voldemort), create your own, selective playlist. Choose
tunes that you associate with fun times and not with Mr. Ex. Include
that song you sang at the top of your lungs at your bestie's sleepover
last weekend or the song your Dad plays when he's making his famous
All sorts of hotties
live in TV-land. Enjoy episodes of the best dramas and comedies that
are chalk-full of eye candy. Take your mind off your real world for a
few minutes and say hello to your celeb, television crushes.
