10 Things to do After a Breakup

Breakups are tragic, but rather than mope at home, keep yourself occupied! Here are 10 things you can do post-breakup alone without getting judged. And if you ever feel sad, remember: this might be the last time in your life that you’ll be single. So enjoy singlehood while it lasts! 

1. Smash it out at The Fragment Room

So you have a lot of pent up anger from your previous relationship and want to break things — do it at The Fragment Room, Singapore’s first rage room. For $38, you get a crate of breakables (plates, television sets, anything!), a baseball bat and 30 minutes of smashing good time. A helmet, coveralls and cut-proof gloves provided as well. You may bring your own items as well, but that will cost another $15.

Eating alone may be one of the things you have to deal with after a breakup. While that’s perfectly fine, what’s worse is witnessing a couple at the opposite table feeding each other. You don’t have to deal with that at NOX. Dine in a pitch-black dining room and be prepared for a surprise. At $88++, you get a mystery set menu consisting of 12 unique dishes that spans over three courses, all prepared by Chef Shahrom and team. Cocktails available as well. You will be accompanied by a guide at all times. Make a reservation here

Hypnotherapy sounds scary, but it really isn’t what people think. Instead, it looks into your unconscious mind to resolve emotional issues. You don’t have to go through trauma to undergo hypnosis as well — tons of people go to solve problems like bad habits and procrastination too, according to Lee McKing, founder of Lee McKing Hypnotherapy.
