  2. List at least 3-4 reasons why working out can be helpful after a breakup, and explain each. (For example, if you say exercise increases endorphins, explain what endorphins do for your mood — or if you say working out will boost your confidence, explain why it’s important to build up confidence after a breakup).
  3. Any tips for getting the most out of your exercise after a breakup? (For example, working out with friends to make it a social activity, or maybe finding a personal trainer who can help you reach your goals?)
  4. Are there specific types of exercise you recommend trying after a breakup? Why those? (Or any you advise against trying?)
  5. Can exercise after a breakup ever become unhealthy? (Say, if someone becomes obsessive with working out, or uses it solely to try and win their ex back?)
