If you don’t want to say and it’s just a general feeling of blah… Sometimes a strenuous workout kickstarts things for me. Seems like it just clears out all the cobwebs and stuff. Usually I like taking classes though like spin classes or kickboxing classes because they make me push through and not just give up. Each track I just try and push my hardest until it’s over. Later I realize I just feel better. haha. Honestly I think getting out and doing something helps the most. If you can go out with some friends for a dinner and drinks and enjoy yourself? Or walk around and shop, if you like shopping? Get in your car, blare some music, go get a milkshake, and drive somewhere nice or interesting or new? Anything like this maybe. haha. 

My fiance usually takes me to some nice dinner place if I’ve been down for a few days and stuff just keeps going wrong. He knows good food makes me feel better, but it’s not the same for me unless I go out. I’ll get dressed and put on makeup and it helps me break out of a mental rut, and good food always helps me. But I’m a foodie and I don’t indulge too much. haha. Plus, honestly, the effort coming from his side and his extra-attentiveness/concern really helps me feel better.

Trying to think of something besides the other suggestions…

If you’re wiped out or exhausted and going out sounds terrible and nobody is around, then I’d suggest do something sort of out-of-the-ordinary. Order delivery from somewhere unique, put on some makeup you’ve been wanting to try and answer the door all glammed-up (or totally just in your PJs and casual-like), watch a new but interesting movie or show while you eat, make something you’ve been interested in making… heck, make some cookies. haha.

Or do some cleaning. I know that might sound terrible, but if you have somewhere you’ve been wanting to organize, you feel much more accomplished after it’s done and looks all nice and neat… plus it gets you moving, which really helps make you feel better.  

Sorta depends on if you have friends/family/fiance around also?

Taking a walk. Walking has always lifted my spirits.

I hope you feel better!

I snuggle my puppies, watch some NCIS, and have some comfort food.

When I really feel awful I spend time with my pets, who don’t know about tough things in the world. They remind me to take it one step at a time. Alternatively, watching cute animals on netflix or nature docs always makes me feel better. If it’s a really terrible day, retail therapy via thrift shopping is pretty great and cheap. I hope your day gets better OP!

A big wonderful hug from my FH works in addition to my Rottie, one of my favorite animated movies, and/or a delicious piece of cake usually do it for me.
