Accompanied by powerful songs to lift your spirits!

Move over, Adele! When the time has come to really move on, you stop wallowing in despair and you let go of the void. Gone are the days where you lie down in your bed, tucked under the sheets, and listening to songs that make you dwell on sad feelings.

Think of this as the soundtrack in your own drama film where a song plays while you pick yourself up from pieces — trying new clothes on, getting a makeover, hitting the gym, or just turning your life around. Here are the post-breakup makeovers you need to do and the songs to listen to.

Make a statement

If you feel you’re ready to move on, find a new mantra and make a statement. Show the world that you’re moving forward and ready to face new challenges once again. You can get a tattoo, a new hair color, or completely different hairstyle.

Song to listen to: “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift

We are never ever, ever getting back together
We! Are never ever, ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Pamper yourself

When was the last time you took time for yourself without feeling selfish and guilty? Now’s the time to book a spa treatment and get that much-needed mani-pedi session. Savor the opportunity to wear just a robe at night while you apply a face mask or some cucumber slices on those eyebags caused by the late nights you spent crying over your ex.

Song to listen to: “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfield

I’m gonna put my body first
And love me so hard ’til it hurts
I know how to scream out the words
Scream the words

Change your makeup routine

Sport a new look by being more adventurous with your makeup. Try something new for the first time, perhaps a vibrant lippie and pop liner aside from the usual blush, pink, and red. Get out of the beauty rut so you regain any lost confidence. Giving ourselves a new look gives us a chance to be someone new.

Song to listen to: “no tears left to cry” by Ariana Grande

Right now, I’m in a state of mind
I wanna be in, like, all the time
Ain’t got no tears left to cry
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up (oh yeah)
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up

Sweat all the toxins out

If there’s one thing you can truly enjoy post-breakup, it’s breaking a sweat. You get endorphins from working out which makes you happy, and you’ll feel refreshed and alive after! Being healthier and getting abs are just a bonus.

Song to listen to: “The Greatest” by Sia

Well, uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
Oh, I, I got stamina
Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
But, oh oh, I got stamina

Purge and redecorate

Start letting go of the past and purge your closet. Throw away (or donate) the stuff that reminds you of your ex. Keeping it in won’t let you move on and next thing you know, you’re eating a tub of ice cream late at midnight.

While you’re at it, take the chance to redecorate your room. Paint your walls with new colors or rearrange your furniture. Make a new sanctuary for yourself.

Song to listen to: “Irreplaceable” by Beyoncé

Everything you own in the box to the left
In the closet that’s my stuff, yes
If I bought it please don’t touch

Treat yourself out

When you’ve finally let things go and made some space for something new, it’s time for retail therapy! Splurge on fashion and accessories, and look fabulous again. Buy that gorgeous handbag and that killer pair of stilettos. Don’t bother feeling guilty, you deserve all of it!

Song to listen to: “Material Girl” by Madonna

‘Cause we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Start doing things alone

I know you’ve been used to doing things with someone else, but let’s face it: you’re now alone. Don’t think of it as a bad thing. Shift your perspective and think of it as an opportunity to learn new things or try activities you’ve always wanted to do but your ex didn’t want to.

Song to listen to: “Party For One” by Carly Rae Jepsen

Party for one
If you don’t care about me
I’ll just dance for myself
Back on my beat
I’ll be the one
If you don’t care about me
Making love to myself
Back on my beat

Slay in work and propel your career

Remind yourself of the great talents you possess. You’re strong and independent and you can get anything you want as long as you work for it.

Song to listen to: “Work B*tch” by Britney Spears

You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti?
You want a Maserati? You better work bitch
You want a Lamborghini? Sippin’ martinis?
Look hot in a bikini? You better work bitch

Show the world you’re ready

Update your social media accounts and show the world the new you. Socialize and let people see you’re doing well, even if your heart breaks from the memories of the past from time to time. Take the crown because the world is yours.

Song to listen to: “Sit Still, Look Pretty” by Daya

Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty

Bonus: If the sadness creeps back in, embrace it

Just because you look well both in and out doesn’t mean you’re not vulnerable from heartbreaking memories and the sadness that comes after every breakup. Embrace it, but don’t sulk for too long. Just let yourself feel because this is going to pass. You’ll get through this.

Song to listen to: “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn

I’m in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I’m right over here, why can’t you see me, ohh
I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the girl you’re taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

Netflix confirms One Piece adaptation coming this year

Plus a new poster

Published

on

Netflix continues its huge gamble on anime adaptations. Over the past several years, the platform produced a couple of live-action versions of classic anime shows. To the company’s dismay, neither of the adaptations were received well. Still, the gamble continues to truck on. Netflix has confirmed that the upcoming One Piece adaptation is coming this year.

The live-action adaptation isn’t exactly new. Netflix first announced the title back in 2020 but offered only a few developments concerning the show’s production. Now, we have a release window and a poster.

To be fair, the new poster doesn’t show much except for Luffy’s back. A wider shot shows a bit more including the rears of all the Straw Hat Pirates and a shot of the Thousand Sunny in the distance.

Likewise, Netflix has not shared what the synopsis of the One Piece adaptation will be. Historically, the platform’s live-action adaptations start from the very beginning, taking viewers on a compressed tour through the original anime show’s plot.

That said, the company has a long uphill climb to legitimize its live-action anime adaptations. Despite featuring Willem Dafoe as Ryuk, Netflix’s previous Death Note adaptation quickly receded into a forgettable title. Additionally, Cowboy Bebop was canceled after only one season.
