I will usually find something to do around the house. Either clean something or work in my garden. Or sometimes I will cook something good. Eating it is alot of fun.

I have lots of things to do when I'm feeling down. I play my favorite pc games Sims I really enjoy playing that game, and sometimes I played to my pet dog who used to cheer me up when I'm down. My daughters cheers me up too we played and tickles me. I don't let my feeling ruin my day thats why I already starts to feel it I ignore it and think possitive and do my best to be happy.

there are allot of things that cheer me up. i am a movie lover, so i usually pick a movie and a ton of snacks (including th most important: chocolate). sometimes i listen to music, sometimes take a bubble bath. then again when i fell really really down there is no other cure than sleep for me. But i like the first cure the best :D

When I am down and troubled and I need a helping a hand, all I do is take refuge in the company of my good friends. Its not to seek their advice or whatever but just to be with people who would help me not to feel bored. I never indulge in sadness. I am the type of person who is very good in shaking away sadness.

Hi angel_of_charm! Whenever I feel so down, I would rather be left alone because I really don't feel like talking or having some company. I read all my inspirational books again, then I try to have personal reflection, then I sleep, and eat and the most important one is, I Pray really hard.

When I'm feeling down I usually call my mom or sister. Just the sound of their voices usually gets me out of my bad mood. If they're not around I turn on the radio or my IPod and start dancing around the house.

I sing, I may take a bubble bath, have a self talk, listen to some music, read, make something nice to eat.

When I'm feeling down I try to go for walks. There are times when I talk to my hubby and he helps me feel better by just listening to me. The best way I join my kids in their games and end up laughing so much that I forget why I was sad in the first place.

its true that children can take away the down feeling..specially when you see them laugh..i wish i had children too to make me feel better at times.

Usually I'll just go for a long walk or bike ride. If I can't, then I find other ways to occupy my mind so I don't feel down any more.
