When you’re feeling down—whether it be the wedding or something else—what cheers you up? Hopefully we can make this thread a resource for pick-me-ups during the stress of wedding planning and married life.
Something that cheers me up without fail is listening to the performances of my all-state choir from high school. It always brings a smile to my face.
What about you?

Playing with my cats, exercise (love those endorphins), going for a ride amongst beautiful scenery and when I am really down – reaching out for support from my fellow bees! Oh and sex, sex always makes me sunny!

Ohh I can already tell I’m going to love this thread! It never fails to cheer me up when I play with my little baby bulldog. She’s so darn cute, I can’t help but cheer up. Also foolproof, Jimmy Fallon’s SNL Greatest Moments. I will laugh endlessly.

My dog, going for a walk, getting a chocolate chip carmel apple and sneaking it into the movies (mainly girly movies), watching an episode of my favorite show on DVD, crafting for my Bridesmaid or Best Man (I get giddy thinking about how much I’m spoiling them!), reading a good book, a bubble bath…wow I have a lot, I guess I should come back here the next time I’m down and actually do these things, I think it’s harder to remember when you are actually down.

My cats, video games, and happy music help. When I’m bummed at work, I go for a walk. I work in DC and smack dab near so many gorgeous monuments and buildings, so that cheers me up a bit.

Chocolate!! Especially dark chocolate covered cherry cordials. Also, buffalo doritos dipped in ranch do the trick. Wait … non-food ….
I love when my fiance gets into his lovey-dovey mood and runs his fingers through my hair and on my cheek and tells me how much he loves me …that’s my favorite time ever and it leaves me so happy for days!
Also, a massage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or man/ped

This sounds absolutely silly but breakfast food make me happy. For whatever reason bacon (and a can of Coke) does the trick for me. Hmmm, there’s just something so wrong with me posting this under the Wellness section of this forum.

Our two adorable canaries! I love playing with them and when they sing it cheers me up instantly. 🙂
Spontaneous dance parties (randomly in the living room, or while we cook or brush our teeth)
Being outside on a nice day.
Ice cream! 🙂

When I’m feeling down (and I was about 30 minutes ago, by the way) I like to put on a pair of Christian Louboutins and dance around to music-I’ll literally be wearing pajamas and 5" heels but it makes me feel so much better!

Things that always make me smile are: my kitties, episodes of my favorite shows (How I Met Your Mother, Friends), a good, strong cup of coffee and listening to music.
