When you are feeling down, what is your favorite thing to do to lift your spirits?


When I am feeling down, a simple activity like painting my toenails can lift my spirits. Sometimes it is the simple things in life that can bring us joy. How quickly we forget.

    It's nice to here that others still appreciate the brick and mortar bookstore. I especially like to go on a rainy day. I love the smell of all of the printed books when I walk in the door. Thanks for sharing!

    I have admire you for taking the physical activity approach. At times, I just want to lay horizontal on the couch and disappear into the cushions with a big fluffy pillow and a cozy blanket.

    I guess that is where that phrase, "Stop to smell the roses" became popular. Flowers lift my spirits also. Thanks for your input.

    Cleaning does take your mind off things. When your done, you can stop and say, "Ah! I feel like I have accomplished something today". That would make me smile. Prayer always seems to calm the spirit. Doesn't it?

    Hey! Eating and shopping is great "in moderation of course". I just discovered the benefits of online shopping. As for eating, my girlfriend and I are becoming foodies together. Yes, I am a girl. Sometimes I like to paint smiley faces on each nail.

    Listening to music for at least 20 minutes in the middle of the afternoon is becoming a new thing for me. It does work. Thank you!

    I like this idea. I occasionally enjoy a power nap, but I never take time to reflect on life like that. I will definitely try it. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Thanks for sharing your story. I completely understand how it brings security and peace of mind. Every time I get a bill paid, for some odd reason I stop to say, "Ah!"

    Sounds like a good way to brighten your mood and keep you fit. That would be a good "pick-me-up" when I start to run out of energy too.

    Love, love, love your answer! It's amazing how much pray can change a persons perspective. I always say to myself, "Well, at least I have 2 strong feet to stand on and vision to see my way through it".
