That is exactly when you should tell yourself, "I feel great. Life is terrific. Life is full of the unexpected!" and in minutes you start shedding off your blues!

A picture of a sad Dog - This is a picture of a sad dog.
When you repeat this several times without thinking about the meaning of the words, you feel an inner change and your depression starts to reduce in intensity. The trick is "not to consider the meaning of the words you say to yourself". Here's a sad looking dog! Happy company! Sincerely, surya

Hi, I do that sometimes when I get blue. Listening to oldies seems to bring back fond memories and often brings a smile to my face. But mostly I reach out when I get blue. Call one of my siblings that i have not spoken to for a while or one of my good friends. I also treat myself sometimes when i can afford to. A slice of pizza, or a nice shirt, or some ice cream. Really works for me.

When I get down, I like to go for a walk and listen to some lovely upbeat music. It always makes me feel much better, and it is a well known fact that exercise can improve your mood, especially if you're walking in a pretty place somewhere. Eating healthily always improves my health as well. Even though you might feel like eating junk food when you're in a bad mood, it is much better for you to eat healthily, as junk food only makes you feel even worse later on.

I like listening to music too to cheer me up. I often get that feeling too, especially after I get back home from work in the evening, tored, exhausted, and blue. Lively music cheers me up and gets rid of the blues. I have to keep a collection of those lively songs !

I tend to listen to journey. They are a great band. And sometimes I write poetry.. very rarely though. But I like to just hang out with friends to get out of that phase.
