What do you do to make yourself feel better

Okay, so you have had a really bad day or a bad week. What do you do in an effort to feel better?

Negative strategies
Some people turn to drugs to numb the pain they feel or to escape. Some look for a high. For some it may be that their crowd use drugs so it seems like the natural way to try to feel better.

There are those who use alcohol and this can again be normal for the family or social group a person associates with. Others participate in some form of gambling or compulsive shopping. The person who uses gambling or compulsive shopping as a 'cure' for feeling miserable may not realise they have a problem for quite some time as having a flutter and doing a bit of 'retail therapy' are considered socially acceptable. However, if these ways of trying to make yourself feel better seem to be getting out of control, then talking to your doctor or other medical professional seems advisable.

What else can you do to make yourself feel better?
Spending time doing some easy gardening can lift your spirits. I suggest growing things that have a high rate of success because it can be disappointing to spend lots of money and put hard work into your garden and have much of what you have planted die. It's just not going to make you feel happier about life.
Talk to positive helpful people. If certain individuals are going to make you feel bad about yourself or they are full of negativity all the time they probably aren't going to lift your spirits. A bit of a whinge can help both of you get problems off your chest but if there is no positivity, is that helping you feel better?
Look around for things to feel gratitude for. This could be small ordinary things but if you are focusing on the positive you may be surprised how much better you start to feel.
Get outside and get some exercise. This could be a walk or perhaps you would rather catch up with a friend for a game of tennis or squash. These sports can help you get rid of pent up tension and will make you take some deep breaths. You don't have to be good at the game to benefit.

There are many positive activities (things that don't have negative side effects) which can help lift your spirits. Different things work for different people.
