You don’t have to work out for an hour.  Take a quick walk around the block – or work out for 10 minutes.  Anything that gets the blood flowing will make you feel better

Aww, I’m sorry. Sending big hugs your way.

Is there ANY way you can fit in a twenty-minute brisk walk? Even that much exercise can really help your mood, particularly if you can do it most days of the week.

Other than that – my go-to mood-boosters are talking to close friends or family, watching cute videos on the internet, trying to make a mental list of things I’m grateful for (I know, cheesy, but it works sometimes), trying to be extra nice to strangers (cheesy x 2), and reading really sarcastic writers whose sense of humor/politics I share.

You know, that, and the cocaine.

I bet you would feel a hell of a lot better if you could squeeze in that work out. It will release feel good endorphins, especially since that is when you feel good. No matter how tired, exericse. Don’t give up things you enjoy and that make you feel good especially when you have all this crap going on.

I go horseback riding.

 

Always jolts me back to reality.

When I’m feeling blue, I eat Chipotle. This is a fact. It works 100% of the time — even the day I got stung by a bunch of bees and had a horrible allergic reaction and spent an entire glorious Saturday in bed in a Benadryl haze, DH brought me Chipotle and everything was okay again!

Is there some go-to treat that’s sure to put a smile on your face, even if it’s totally extravagant? Some expensive chocolate, a pound of strawberries or something? If it works, go for it!

How about watching a funny movie or TV show? Laughing can really help.

I also find making lists helps me when I am overwhelmed. Break everything you need to do into manageable tasks. Crossing things off is fun!

Try to exercise. You must be able to fit 30 min in somewhere. That helps me a lot. I have to drag my butt out but I never regret exercising and need to do it more regularly.

Do something you enjoy. Whether it’s shopping, having a night doing nothing, dinner w. friends etc… do something totally ‘selfish’.

If all else fails, you WILL snap out of it, trust me. This happens to me sometimes. One day it just passes.

I like to put old-school NSYNC on and dance until I’m laughing, singing, and tired.

@serendipity9.8:  Thought of something else – what about a bubble bath with candles and a good book?  Or whatever makes you feel pampered?

@serendipity9.8:  Painting my fingers and toes always makes me feel happy, too.  I love pretty colors.  I think I have about 100 bottles of nail polish, lol.

Girlfriends. Shopping.  Both preferred at the same time!
