    Keep yourself busy in daily life so that you do not get time to think about that person. If you are sitting idle, you will find it extremely hard to suppress the thoughts of that person. If you are at home, start doing household chores such as making your bed, rearranging clothes in your closet, doing the dishes. If you are in office, go through the work that you have previously completed.

Playing video games is an excellent way to keep yourself distracted from things that you do not want to think or worry about something.

Staring at the screen can make your eyes hurt.
