Going to the city and walking long distances
A good, long sleep. Restful sleep is like a long, hot, soapy shower. Everything seems better and brighter afterwards.
I agree, a nice hot bath, fresh sheets and a good long sleep to recharge those batteries . You can definitely think a lot better and everything else doesnt looks so sombre
A long hot shower, crisp clean sheets, a good book to read as you get sleepy, and then a long, sweet sleep. The perfect storm for feeling better
Works for me
music usually works to distract me from how depressed i am and from reality. but not always.
This has to be one of the most awesome feelings ever! As amazing as going to bed is, when those sheets are clean, crisp and smell o' so fresh, you can't help but feel sooo relaxed! Need to have a shower or bath just before. Why does feeling clean make us so happy? Hmmm
A nice cuppa tea.
Sleep, Video games, and my dogs. Sometimes my girlfriend, but she typically gets sad when I’m sad, so that doesn’t help.
Improving my physical appearance. Music for sure. Chatting with my friends on here.
Jogging, I feel like physical exercise helps. Also eating in an healthy way, things like broccoli, spinach, fruit I feel like it helps a lot.
Sadly for me is alcohol.
Sun lamp for these winter months.
Also playing outside, hanging out with my cat, reading books, working, cooking with some good music on.
A positive environment where you are able to heal and help you to design a life worth living. Regular exercise , a healthy nutritional plan, along with meditation and group activities help you to overcome depression and feel you better.
This community of amazing people who have all found each other through the worst times in our lives but have (hopefully) realised that we are not alone. Love to all. X
I'm learning to play electric guitar, it's fun & very meditative. Also running, watching some old series(by the sword divided ,atm youtube), visiting my mom to play some games works wonders
I am hoping can be a distraction but I enjoy colouring books, card making, general crafts, drawing, designing on laptop. Board games with my son, wood work with him too and cookig and baking and if nothing distracts I try cleaning the house.
Drinking coffee, spending time with friends, watching anime or reading manga, playing games, going to work, music (sometimes), outdoor activities (most of the time)
When I'm in a tight spot, only things that harm me work to make me "normal" again.
