Whenever I feel mad, stressed, tired or bored,eating ice cream is my best way to relieve me from these negative feelings. I don't exactly know what' in the ice cream that makes me feel relaxed and forget the negative feeling.Could it be because the ice cream is cold and it lessens the heat of our body or its taste.

I thought it was just only me who likes ice cream specially when I am stress from work. Soft ice creams are everywhere and while eating you feel your head is cooling down and it relaxes you. It seems that ice cream is bad because it could be a junk food? and fattening. I just want to have ice cream everyday but it can also make you feel guilty if eating everyday...

Yeah it works for me too. I guess it comes down to it being a comfort food. It's very tasty but remember that it is really high in fat! So yeah treat yourself every now and then but remember to have anything in moderation, even ice cream!

I am very much addicted to ice cream too. I keep a bucket of ice cream in the refrigerator at home always, and I would have ive cream every evening after I get back home from work. Yes, that relieves me of all the stresses of the day, and makes me feel refreshed. In fact, ice cream is also my favorite dessert, after lunch and dinner.

ice cream does not only relives stress but also makes you feel so happy because of the icy feelings it gave you. sometimes when i am sad, i tend to eat my favourite snacks so maybe you are just in the same situation as i am, when we are stress or depress we tend to find our favourite food or snacks like ice cream. :)

Love ice cream Well, its sweet, soft and delicious. It also reminds me of my stree-free happy childhood so it never fails to cheer me up. It may be a little unhealthy but I do not care. Welcome to Mylot, babyjc1229!

I really don't know what's with cream taht can make you feel that way. But yes, I do use ice cream to comfort my friends during their troubled times. I also have the notion that treating a sorrowful friend with ice cream will eventually move their troubles away. Well maybe because ice cream is a well know comfort food.

I believe it is purely psychological. Ice cream is soft, sweet and has a great taste and pleasing colors. We rate those qualities as positive. Positive things put us in a good mood. On a less logical level, ice cream is just magical! It's a cure for heat, depression and stress! It's chilliness feels good all the way down. I just wish is was friendlier to the body. The fat parts makes me cry.
