Someone recently told me how they hated feeling “down” /sad. And they needed some quick fixes.
-listen to some sad songs/watch sad videos. Cry it out. I usually do that.
-talk to friends/anybody.
-watch a rom-com.I feel like they are made for nights like these.
-dance around for a bit. Works every time.
– have a talk with yourself. You should be your own best friend. Vv important.
-embrace your ‘sad feeling.’ don’t shun it away in pretense of being a “strong” person. Been there, done that. Doesn’t end well.
-take a shower. Cold/hot whatevz. Just make yourself clean. Cleaning your body helps cleansing your mind.
-sometimes i make myself look nice by trying out different hairstyles etc and that distracts me and it works. (narcissism! It works!)
-write about it. Vent it out.
-hugs. I used to be a person who hated hugs. Now i want one on a regular basis. Hugs are #1 stress relievers.
-read your old facebook statuses/captions. Will make you cringe and happy that you’ve grown a lot from then.
-sleep it off.
Of course there isn’t a specific way to make yourself feel better. Some days, you won’t be able to feel better. Some days you wouldn’t WANT to feel better(been there). That’s okay. As long as you keep trying, the next day. Being sad is not a disease. It isn’t a sign of weakness. Don’t treat it like one.
