You are not alone! I have been feeling very down lately.
Here are some things you ca try to help make yourself feel better:
Turn up the volume on your radio, or on YouTube playing your favourite song and dance. Just dance like no one is watching. Remember to listen to energetic, jumpy, soulful, or happy tunes, along with songs that inspire you or remind you of good times.
You can try journaling even if it is for 20 minutes a day. It works to help organize our thoughts about our sadness. It may help to better pinpoint the reasons why you are feeling sad. It also helps you keep track of your behavioral and emotional patterns.
Are you a fan of reading? If yes, I would suggest you read a book, preferable of a genre you like. It can help distract your feelings and change it to a happy feeling.
I am a fan of scented candles. Lighting scented candles and just smelling it in the air of a room and be helpful. If you are into them, I would suggest you try them.
Exercising and eating a healthy diet can also affect our emotions. Go outdoors and take a walk. Eat a healthy snack. Know it can seem like a task when we are not feeling up to it, but take little steps, and try.
Keep us updated on how you are feeling.
