Do you have the "mully-grubs" or "down in the dump" days?

Recently, I seem to get depressed more often. I have found out that if I will repeat, "This is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice in it." this seems to help. Not just saying it once, I have to keep repeating it. I sing the song by that title too sometimes, and that helps. I have also found out that if I praise God and think of my blessings I bounce back pretty quick too. What do you do when a "down in the dumps" feeling or "mully-grubs" time comes to you?

Hi, depression can just be a hormonal fluctuation,just prior to getting your periods or something bad that happened that day. As long as the depression doesn't drag on. You can help yourself by taking Vitamin B forte -a natural vitamin obtained from the Chemist, or St. John's Wort which is another good vitamin. This vitamin outsells antidepressants made by chemical companies in Germany. So, I would recommend it. The other thing, is to be good to yourself when you are having the blues. Take out some time for yourself, have a nice long bath, go to your favourite place, treat yourself to something you enjoy. You deserve it.

When I am having a down in the dumps kind of a day I keep telling myself that the day has to end. That and like you suggested thinking about everything that I am blessed with does help. Also getting down on the floor and romping with my two boys will usually pull me out of it also.
