Distract them: Figure out ways to keep them from laying in bed all day wondering where they went wrong. Find things to do together so they can keep their head clean.
Encourage Them To Spend Quality Time Alone: Make sure they are spending quality time alone with themselves. If they are not ready to face the world, spending time alone is beneficial.
Offer them to reinvent: Offer to help your friend redecorate their space, clear out their closet, get a haircut, or otherwise get their fresh start.
Encourage Them To Talk To You: You should encourage them to talk to you, cry to you, laugh with you or any other way they may want to express themselves to you. When going through a breakup, it often feels totally isolating and just talking to someone helps.
Let Them Find Their Own Path: Your friend is going to have to take their own time to heal and work through things, and they’re going to have to do it in their own way. Let them find their own way and make sure you let them know you are there for them.
Take them for occasional night outs: Take them out occasionally on night outs to the clubs or try out a new restaurant. They will enjoy the vibe and feel refreshed after a long time of feeling sad.
Text them: It is important to make sure your friend knows that they are not alone in the process of heartbreak and healing. Sending an extra few texts during the day or sending them a funny meme will show you care about them.
Give advice, but don’t lecture: They may ask for your insight or advice on how to cope or heal from the break up. It is important not to lecture them about what they’re doing wrong and just give advice.
