chocolate

hug from FI

feel-good movie

making myself pretty for no reason

Did I say “chocolate” yet?

 

 

Whatever it is just try to stay positive.  Life goes up and down but there is always something worth a smile.  You just have to look for it a little deeper sometimes.  Keep on searching for that.

I watch comedy routines, talk to someone who makes me laugh.  Get outside and people watch.  Take my dogs to the dog park and watch them play. 

Just taking joy in the simple things.  I’ll get some comfort food, but I try not to over do it! Since that would make me feel bad.

I’ll watch movies I love, or read a book (or reread a book.)

Things that produce endorphins help too like exercise, and sex.  I stay away from any and all depressants, alcohol especially.  I also try not to get too much caffeine and try to get enough sleep because if I don’t that will really take its toll.

When I am ready I will talk with someone I trust to kinda let it all out and let it go or at least start the healing process.

Hope things get better for you. :/

Chocolate ice cream! 

I’m sorry you’re feeling down. I’ve defnitiely had some times like that throughout my wedding planning time. 

For me what really made me feel better was just putting aside wedding stuff. Taking a day or two break from doing anything wedding related. It alwasy made me feel better to focus a little bit more on real life then this silly wedding bubble I’ve been in.

I hope whatever it is you feel better soon. I like to go get my pedicure with a good friend maybe a little shopping with a nice lunch. Sounds weird but I like to clean when I am down.

@MusiqueEstVie:  I actually calm down by cleaning and throwing stuff away. I find it theraputic . Then I sit down in a clean nice smelling house with choclate and a good book!

Go shopping, go to the movies… but if you’re REALLY sad – since you said “heartbreaking” – I would cry it out. Have a good ol’ cry, with tissues and comfort from FI.

I spoil myself to cheer myself up. I’m a usually pretty frugal person so when I’m really upset I like to splurge a little on myself. I either go shopping, make a spa date, or go out to a fancy restaurant. It’s a bonus if I do any of the above with a friend.

I like going to thrift stores and looking for “treasure.” Also, snuggles with my cat, and my DH. Sometimes I like repetetive physical activity to get my mind into a cadence. Like scrubbing for example, or walking aimlessly around the neighborhood. 

Sometimes a nap is in order. Watching Looney Tunes helps, as does old movies from my childhood that I loved.

Bubble bath, glass of wine, chocolate. Clean bedsheets & PJ’s. I paint my nails too, which I can’t do for work so it feels like a treat 🙂

@AlwaysSunny:  OMG… The Black Goat of the family…. too awesome!  I know I feel better.  At the expense of a goat, though, so that’s not good.
