Talk to your friends.
Get clear with your ex. If there are a lot of unresolved issues involving money, possessions, etc., clear them up.
Distract yourself. Movies, sightseeing, outdoor activities, games and a good book are all possibilities.
Take up a new hobby or enroll in some classes.
Exercise - put your mind on something new, like training for a marathon, improving your tennis game, or working on those abs.
Work hard. Work can be a great distraction, especially if you feel like you're accomplishing something.
Indulge yourself. Chocolates, massages, facials, shopping sprees - whatever helps make you feel good about yourself.
Date other people.
