In a funk ....

I know a few people on here find themselves in a funk every now and then. What do you do to get yourself out of it? I have been feeling sad all day today. As soon as my grand daughter left I got back into bed and have been here ever since. I just feel to be alone with my thoughts. I have no desire to do anything. One of my kitties has been laying here beside me all afternoon. It is comforting. I tried to eat but I am just not feeling it. I know it will pass and I will feel better in a few days but for now I just can't get over this feeling of sadness.

I always redirect my thoughts by doing something that requires my paying attention. Our brain gets a break when we are redirecting our thoughts by working on a project, cleaning, taking a walk etc. and the sadness lifts because the chemicals in the brain are given a chance to right themselves.

I'm sorry your feeling down. I pray, watch Todd White videos on YouTube, listen to Christian music and my favorite when I am able to is help someone else who is down or just needs something I can give. =) I will be praying you feel more like yourself soon!

I don't have many of these days anymore but a couple of things may help. Fill the bathtub and pamper yourself a little with a good soak in nice hot water, then go ahead and take a nap, I usually feel better when I wake up. Or plan a vacation, it doesn't have to be a real one, do a dream one but research bed and breakfasts that you would love to visit, anything to get your mind into a more positive place. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

I try to get involved in something that really needs concentration. Before I was married I'd go for a long ride on my pony. It's surprising the problems I used to solve while I was riding. I'd come home more relaxed and focussed.
