Ultimate Breakup Playlist

After a breakup, the first thing girls do is head to the ice cream aisle of the grocery store and pick up a pint (or half-gallon) of Ben & Jerry’s. We love chocolate, and for some reason it has magical feel-good powers when mixed with milk and cream. But does it do anything for your self-esteem? Or your waistline? Not a chance.

Guys on the other hand, often head to the gym post-breakup. They like to grunt and sweat out their frustrations. Even though this may seem intimidating at first sight, they’re on to something.  Not only does working out release endorphins and trigger serotonin in your brain, which elevate your overall mood, but you’re also making yourself look hotter! So if you’re suffering from a heart-break, put down the ice cream, walk out of the store and sprint to the closest gym.

Once you’re there, you’re going to want some tunes to keep you pumping. After all, music makes you lose control. My suggestion: add a playlist to your iPod and name it something like “Badass Moves” or “Sweating My Way Sexy.” Here are some songs that will keep you moving through your workout, whether you’re running, spinning, or lifting weights.

“Hot N Cold” — Katy Perry

“Bulletproof” — La Roux

“Since U Been Gone” — Kelly Clarkson

“Ridin’ Solo” — Jason DeRulo

“Gives You Hell” — The All-American Rejects

“Take it Off” — Ke$ha

“Fighter” — Christina Aguilera

“Love the Way You Lie” — Eminem featuring Rihanna

“Not Afraid” — Eminem

“Picture to Burn” — Taylor Swift (For my country fans!)

“Best Days of Your Life” — Kellie Pickler (Again, for my country lovers!)

Enjoy these songs and watch your ex eat his (or her!) heart out next time he sees you.
