When you're sad…

Sometimes I craft. I have a home office filled with crafting supplies- sometimes when I am feeling sad I wander in there and start making the next family member’s birthday card, or I paint something. I also read- can’t wait for it to get warmer out to use my sunroom again!

Go for a walk by myself. Soemthing about fresh air and your favorate tunes in your ears. 

Call my grama, she is always the sweetest person to talk to when your not having a good day. Or spend time with my neices and nephew.

If I am alone, I put on a funny show. Friends is always my happy show. I just watched 2 episodes…I was sad. 

Or I listen to happy songs, happy old songs that take me down good memory lane.

Go for a run, hang out with a friend, watch a movie.

Well, sometimes I just let myself be sad. Sometimes that’s good for you. But then it’s time to get over it and move on. Good, happy music usually helps. Or a funny show. Or a cuddle with my kitten. Or talking to a friend. Or making dinner with my husband…

I go to bed.  Being still and quiet helps me relax.

Other times, I distract myself with TV, shopping or going out for a meal with a friend.

I wallow. A bath, a glass of wine, and Bonnie Raitt.

Hole up in my craft room with a project, take a bath and try to relax, have dinner with a friend, get a pedicure by myself and just enjoy the “solitude”

If it’s warm enough I go for a walk in a certain park. If it’s not, I just park my car there and sit inside huddled up in a blanket. I listen to music either way.

Bath and wine–yes!  Can’t tell you how many times I’ve cried in the tub.  Unfortunately, retail therapy is a go-to for sadness, and I’m trying to get away from that.

southsun:  I haven’t been in a while – but in a time where i had a lot going on, I would stop by my childhood home. The exit is on my way home from work. Sometimes I would just sit in front of it in my car and cry. I have a big attachment to that house and happy memories in it. 

I also like to put on my ipod and walk around in the rain (weather permitting). Maybe visit the beach alone? 

If i am at home i like to run a big bubble bath and play music or set up a movie on my lap top

southsun:  Ice cream and chocolate…

Just kidding (partially). I like to do an activity. Running really helps to clear my mind 🙂
