What always makes you feel better when you’re upset?

I'm sure there's always one thing that makes us feel better when we're upset. For me, it's eating chocolates and when my very close friend is telling me a joke, even if it's corny; so far, it never fails. How about you guys?

Hi dutchess. For me, a tight hug from my daughter and my husband always works. It just takes away the load and makes me feel so much better. As for food, it's either ice cream or chocolate...much better if I can have both.LOL Thanks. Have a great weekend!

I have an Emergency Kitten Folder full of pictures of cute kittens and baby bunnies. Whenever I'm upset, I scroll through the folder. No matter how sad I am, it doesn't fail to help at least a little. It doesn't necessarily make me super happy and cheerful, but it is at least soothing.

I think of ways o things I can do to learn how to make whatever I am upset about better and how to avoid the pain again. Then I visualize myself happy and proud that I found a solution to the problem that was upsettin me. And if that does not work - I get a 6 pack - lol

that's right, always think positive 'cause it won't do any good if we're always pessimistic on things. Always cheer up 'cause life may get a bit harder but it's still good

Hey Dutchess!! My niece and my dogs can always make me laugh, no matter what. Or some times I will put on a song that I like and that will put me in a better mood. Sometimes if I'm really grumpy I'll put on a silly song and do funny dances with my niece and dog. That always makes me laugh

Hey corty! Thanks for the response. Dogs and your niece? Sounds like trouble and fun, lol Speaking of dog, I was planning to have a siberian husky and yeah, listening to music always makes us feel better when we're upset, no doubt about it.

Usually when I speak to someone close to me, such as my partner and we have lighthearted conversation I do tend to feel a lot better. A warm loving hug tends to help me feel better too! Oh and some really cheesy pizza usually does the trick too

Nothing like a warm big hug, it makes me feel better too Knowing that there's someone you could always lean on. I love pizza! I suddenly feel like eating

Usually, when I am upset I have to come out of it by myself. Actually, I am upset now, and food is the last thing on my mind. I usually rather be left alone, and eventually I will come out of it. My husband is trying to make me feel better, but he knows that I rather be alone at distressing times.

Hey sudalunts! Thanks for your response! I agree that we really need time for ourselves to be alone.

I used to eat a full bar of chocolate with the coffee but now I deliberately avoid indulging in that, infact now I sit alone with myself and think over things and try and find something positive in the whole affaire that is upsetting to me and with some time of meditationa dn listening to songs I do get over my emotional turmoil and start the day afresh.

Yeah, it's a bit unhealthy to eat chocolates and drink healthy, specially for the heart, but, it doesn't heart when it's just in moderation Very nice response, it always helps to stay positive

What makes me feel better when I'm upset? well, I just watch comedy of my favorite shoe on TV and I will forget my being upset. It makes me feel better when I started to laugh watching the show. I forget that I am upset. hahaha...

Yeah, watching helps a great deal when we're not in the mood and comedy shows are simply the best

If there's a food that makes me feel better its Ice Cream.I guess I would have to say talking to anyone of our children or grandchildren.Even if one is down the others are always there to pull the spirits up

I love your question and it won't take me long to answer because No thought at all needs to go into this question. When I'm upset all I need is people like you on my friends list here at myLot to say things like,"It's OK Grandma, we still love you." I would be like a fish out of water without myLot, I'm SERIOUS!!!

Getting a bone-crushing hug from a friend unexpectedly, then dancing in the rain with said friend. Later, go watch cheesy horror movies with them. (Thanks, DeVante'!

If I'm feeling upset about something I like to be really busy . Doing things helps me to get my mind off of problems . I can do some major house cleaning when I'm upset about something . It's when I sit around that I think about what's upsetting me . If I get up and get busy doing something it clears my mind .

Chocolate, hands down that is the best stuff and top it off with a little boose. that will chinch the deal as far as I'm concerned. A friendly smile and a good laugh are almost as good.
