Hi everyone,
Just checking in today. It's freezing outside today where I live. I sure hate the cold. I keep telling myself I'm going to have a good day, but I'm not convinced. Feel in a funk today. I ask myself "What's new with that?" Not too much.
 
What does everyone do to keep mind off depression and lowly thoughts? I could really use some ideas. Thanks all.
Have a good day.
Warmly,
D

This time of year is tough, cold as what here today, 1* this morning! its tough to tell yourself to have a good day if you don't believe it, you've got to believe its going to be a good day. I usually find work gets me occupied enough to get my mind off the depression although that doesn't always work either, when i get in a funk i tell myself that it will pass eventually and change up what i'm doing at the time.

If i can't get out of the funk, i either watch a movie or play a video game, this lets me take things in but not have to process them, sometimes it takes a little while to because interested in the story, but it uaually works for me
 
Stay strong, hope you feel better! turn

I have been in a funk for a couple of days. Everything just seems off kilter. Just a tad, enough to notice and be agrivating. I get irritable when I get like that. Went back to bed for awhile. Should of gotten up on the other side, because things still kind of suck. I tried some deep breathing, and that did help. A walk would really help but it is so cold. When the sun is out, it isn't too bad, but it is windy today. I hope that you all feel better and me too. Keep on keeping on. I guess that is what we do. One moment at a time.

Hugs, Karen

Hi, One Moment At A Time,

I've talked a lot about knitting to keep focused, but I think I enjoy
working puzzles even more. It's very relaxing for me, and I usually
keep the number of pieces to between 400 and 500 so that finishing
comes pretty quickly. They are enjoyable to work.

Try some good daily reading, too, such as meditation reading. That's
uplifting if it's well-written material.

Hope you feel better.

THanks everyone for replying back to me. I think it does have somewhat to do with the cold. I appreciate the ideas, I would love to be able to meditate. I've tried before but maybe I will try it again. Thank you everyone. Take care.
Hope everyone feels better too.
Warmly,
D

Know that when you practice meditation, you are actually doing it. It just takes awhile to recognize it. Keep trying.
