Good day everybody,
This is late as usual, my usual time I guess.
What little thing do you do when you are down to make yourself feel better?
I usually listen to some comforting music and meditate.  If the weather is right, I go for a walk.  That really helps me a lot.  Often I see people on my walk so I can say hello to them and they are usually cheerful. 
Let me know what it is that you do.
Hugs, Karen

I like to cry too when I'm feeling down, it seems so liberating at times, but being on Lexapro has made that difficult. Which is good in some ways because I used to cry WAY too easily, but now I can't cry even when I want to sometimes. Oh well.

Sometimes I'll just put on my favorite music and ignore everything and just sit and close my eyes. It's nice to pretend like nothing matters for a few moments.

I read too if I can concentrate.  Otherwise I call a friend so I have someone to talk to.  I generally need human contact when I am feeling down.

It depends on the mood I'm in, but I've found that jogging, music, and a bath help me unwind and relax. Writing in my journal or talking to a good friend or family member is also helpful because I realize that I really need to put what I'm going through into words. Sharing on here is awesome too!
