The holiday season can make people wish they were in a relationship. That's why it's important to stay away from your ex during this time when you may be feeling vulnerable. Here are just a few ideas on how to keep yourself from getting in touch with your ex.

No phone or Facebook. At least make him invisible on Facebook and delete his phone number.

Work out. That will make you happy and distracted.

Give in to what you want. We're talking food and drink, here. Don't go overboard, but enjoy yourself -- eating a little more will be less harmful than contacting an ex.

Do something for someone else. If you donate, volunteer, or do some other good deed over the holidays, you will feel good about yourself.

Get a treat. You should get yourself a nice present -- one that will help you feel like you're a total hottie.

Hang out with single friends. Focus on having fun.

Stay busy. Don't let yourself have time to think of your ex.
