When you have a headache, you take something for it, right? That's just common sense. So it follows that when you have emotional pain, you should take something for it. I prescribe the following painkillers for emotional pain.
Move. Get up and physically move. Start by shaking your body to shake off the pain the way an Olympic swimmer shakes out their muscles before the big swim.. Then walk, jog, run, swim, dance, clean house, bicycle, play fetch with the dog or frisbee with the kids, but get up off of your butt and move. Your brain believes your body before it believes anything else. So operate your body to operate your brain. Shake a leg!
Fun. Have fun! You'll find it extremely hard to stay depressed if you're fast dancing, riding a roller coaster, covered in collie puppies, listening to your favorite comedian or your most entertaining and outrageous friend. Choose to have fun to take a break from emotional pain.
If you're in a lot of pain you'll say,
"but I hurt too much to have fun."
That's not true.
Feel like you hurt to much to have fun? Cover up with those puppies and I dare you to be depressed! You feel like you can't have fun till you're over the hurt but in fact you can make yourself go have fun and that will reduce the pain. You just have to do it. And if you're hurting over somebody, if this is heartache we're looking at, remember, you're about a hundred times more attractive when you're having fun than when you're putting off fun till that person is with you again. Most of us are terrible at pretending. You can't pretend you've been having fun to make yourself more attractive. Having fun changes the way you walk, talk - everything about you. So get up and go have a blast!
Refocus. You must focus on yourself in order to experience emotional pain. Use your head. Focus on someone else's problem's who's got it worse off than you. It is impossible to focus in opposite directions at the same time. Take a break from your own pain by helping someone who has problems. Nothing heals the human spirit more than giving. Nothing heals the heart more than helping others.
An important WARNING about Pain....

I do and I understand.
