Happens to me too. The best way is to take a trip somewhere, anywhere, where you can relax and let go of all your worries. Friends come in handy in these times. Listen to music, as it's the greatest healer and a great booster too. Sometimes, having a pet helps as you can concentrate communicating with him/her and by this way, relax a bit more. I've tried that with Funky, my proud little leopard gecko. In case you don't have a pet, try standing before the mirror and talk to yourself.

Don't just sit around feeling down...it tends to make it permanent. If just getting outside and doing something like going to the beach or a park seems dull, then volunteer somewhere and help someone less fortunate. You obviously have access to a computer, just look up local charities that need volunteers in your area.

Tell yourself that life is short and try and live every day like it's the last. Try and make a goal for anything life maybe losing weight, making more money, and just do it. It has got to come from within. If it is really serious you might need to go to the doctor because you might be depressed and they can give you medication for it.

Hi friend. Allow me to argue with you on this. I don't recommend that you go on with this life set-up for long. Assess what's the root cause of this behavior. There might be an underlying problem. Maybe you're not happy with you work anymore. Try chaging work. Maybe you're not happy with your environment, try changing too. But the best is to start from within. We do not have control in our outside world. But we can control how we will react to the world. I understand your situation my friend coz my husband is currently on that situation. But what's good is he recognizes that there's something wrong and he's starting to fight the negative emotions. =)
