What do you do when you are feeling sad?

Okay, this is kinda random but I was just wondering. Like what do others do when they have heard bad news, or having a bad day, or just are sad at the moment?

 

Do you go somewhere? Go for a drive? Want to be alone? Retail therapy?

 

For me, I gotta say it's defiantly retail therapy. It brings my mood up for a while. And sweets... nothing better than stuffing myself with candy or cookies. Haha. 

Re: What do you do when you are feeling sad?

Read a book - get lost "being" someone else is my number 1 way of coping.  That usually follows a hot bath and a glass of red wine but... if I need further mental diversion I turn to BT or MUA for cosmetic distraction.  Lipstick (and other makeup) makes me happy on several levels!

Re: What do you do when you are feeling sad?

- Retail therapy all the way! 

- Go for a run (unless it's cold/rainy)

- Play with the dog. 

- A heavy poor of red always helps, just make sure the phone is locked up if you're tempted to call/txt a person who is making you sad & that retail therapy is completely finished. Smiley Wink

There may or may not have been a lot of ice cream and dessert and manga/anime involved. The bigger the issue is, the more I go through withdraw eventho that's the time when I should not. If it's just a bad day or sad, then retail therapy or dessert and then move on. If it's really bad/traumatic, I brawl to my friends until they give me a push/kick to move on with life and I get back on track one step at a time. I tend to avoid the issue, so I like go somewhere or for a drive "away" from my problems, but ultimately I have to come back and deal with it....but at least I come back with maybe a new dress, some Sephora stuff and some yummy food so I feel slightly more motivated.

I sing, and drink a beer, and people watch.  Actualit most opt this is bringing a book to a not seedy bar and listening on conversations while using a book for a topic if spoken to, I've been known to tag onto random birthday parties and such, celebrations when I can't find friends, I make new ones and have fun with them.  It at least takes my mind off of things Smiley Very Happy

Re: What do you do when you are feeling sad?

Playing with pets seems to be a trend! I love playing with my dogs and cat. Usually when I have a lot on my mind I'll just go for a walk or spend an extra half hour at the gym. Listening to music always helps and so does cooking, especially if I'm making something sweet.

Re: What do you do when you are feeling sad?

I pray, listen to music, sing, eat, shopping if I have money, watch tv, movie if there's a good one... the best is prayer and it works for me and sometimes you have to cry to get it out of your system and after that your fresh like it doesn't bother you anymore.

 

that's my survivor kit..

I would say retail therapy too! Go for a walk/run or sit in the steam room at my local gymSmiley Happy

Retail therapy for sure! Smiley Happy 

I'm also a talker, so if something's wrong, I'll open up to somebody I trust whether it be my mom or my boyfriend. Chilling outside helps too, as does baking a dessert or watching The Big Bang Theory. Smiley Happy

Re: What do you do when you are feeling sad?

If it's an emotional moment and I need to cry I just cry because I feel worse if I hold tears in and usually feel better when I 'm done. As far as a bad day usually my little boy and husband are the best support systems in the world. And then there are other times if I'm sad and I want to be by myself because if someone babies me I'll cry more.Smiley Happy

Re: What do you do when you are feeling sad?

My fiance is really good about sending me a picture text of one of my cats when I'm sad since that typically gets me to smile. That's if I'm just having a bad day. If I'm having a hard time in life, I do a lot of volunteer work in general but I try to line myself up with projects like feeding the homeless or working with under privileged kids, it really snaps me out of it and makes me realize my life is pretty blessed and also I feel great helping out fellow community members. If I hear bad news... probably go for a run or hit the punching bag a bit.

 

I hope everything is going okay Smiley Happy
