Shopping for sure …. with spending money 

If you have been down for a significant amount of time, you may be a candidate for depression, you can be assessed by your GP

mrs2014:  I like to read – I find it helps to distract me and transport me when I’m feeling low. I also try to remind myself of all the good things in my life – my partner, friends, family, pets…even things like a roof over my head and a full fridge. It sounds cheesy, and sometimes it’s hard to remember the good when you’re feeling so bad, but I really try to.

I know what you mean about the gray, rainy weather – that brings me down big time, too. Do you exercise? I find that when I’m feeling like I’m in a funk, keeping up a regular exercise routine really helps. The endorphins can work wonders.

Lots of sleep and major spa treatment, at least for 2 hours including major work on the head

Laying out by the pool, music (blasting it & singing & dancing around the house), & relaxing to a good movie & then taking a nap.

I know how you feel. It been a really tough year or so for my partner and I due to my FI battling some health issues. It’s also been cold and rainy here for weeks (Melbourne) ,Im under pressure at work and the weekends seem to fly right by me. It’s tough to keep positive sometimes.

I have found accepting it’s ok to be sad sometimes helps. Try to get a couple of really good nights sleep in a row (try chamomile tea befor bed), eat healthy and take 10 mins to do some simple yoga poses. I find the yoga helps my mood if I feel really down. Just do them slowly and focus on your breathing. I have attached a pic below for you 🙂

Superficially: A trip to the blowdry bar

Non-Superficially: meditation

I love a good tv show marathon when I’m feeling flat or down. My show of choice is usually Charmed, but anything that I can watch one after the other of usually cheers me. It’s a good comfort thing.

Put on your “happy songs”! If you don’t have any yet- you need to make a playlist! Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack for some inspiration!

good music, good friends, good chocolate

ETA: I have a history of clinical depression, and that’s different from the blahs. You say it’s been raining for 2 weeks. Have you felt this way that long? Are you eating? Sleeping?
