    What do you do when you are sad?

    How you lift your spirits up after having a bad day or a bad time?

    Do something good for someone else, even though you may not want to. Do a favour, help them find something, give them an item which will help them in some way. Start the flow of positive energy.

    I'll usually do some cardio exercise with some fast-paced, uplifting music. And spend some time with God.

    Watch your favourite film unless it's a weepie. For me, it's This is Spinal Tap.

    I try to do some exercise, even if it's just a walk and to generally take care of myself. Getting outside into nature also helps me.

    Laugh! Out loud and full body laugh. When you get it right, your body responds by feeling like laughing, relaxing and smiling naturally. This is a willful act of taking control of your own feelings. You always create your own feelings. This technique makes it a conscious act, rather than sub-conscious.

    Also, be grateful to God for everything that happens to you. You can't be a victim if you're entirely and completely grateful. There's real magic in that.

    I read a book (they are basically my friends and always change my mood for the better), watch a movie (as a distraction mostly, not to change the mood just to take the edge off), or visit my partner. He always knows how to relax me, calm me down, or just make me feel better.

    I allow myself to cry when I feel out of control and out of options. I use to spend energy suppressing my emotions to the detriment of my mental and physical health.  Since my divorce and layoff from my job, I live with my beloved Scottish Terrier and feel free to let the tears flow in the privacy of my apartment.  Although, I don't subscribe to "pity parties" often, as there are always far more challenging situations that others deal with, my life is important and has value to me.  Being alone creates vulnerability to life's challenges and the knowledge that I am fully responsible for every decision and it's consequences can be overwhelming.  My new reality now holds the ongoing challenges of poverty. The medical insurance, steady, weekly paycheck that once sustained my comfortable existence are gone now.  I am still recovering from the economic circumstances laid on me and, although an eternal optimist,  I am only human.  When I encounter yet another blow, I, unashamedly, allow the cathartic healing of tears run their course and then carry on.

    I know how to feel bad and I also know how to switch my feelings to feel good and hold it as long as I like.

    When I'm sad, I listen to gospel music. It stirs my soul to the point where I know without doubt that God is on my side.
