    I just sit down, Breath in and out and begin to pray.

    I pray, and then I remember the poor, the sick, the homeless and handicapped, who still have a desire to survive, despite of their hardships. This keeps me going.

    I find something to do for awhile that lets me escape my troubles - read a book, watch a  funny movie etc. and I allow myself to feel the way I feel.  Often times we pile guilt on top of what we are dealing with because we feel we have to fight feeling that way or that we are "weak" or something if we are having one of those days.  That being said, I feel it for awhile but I make myself move on to positive things. Sometimes the mind/spirit get tired and need a little break.

    I know from experience that reworking your mind is imperative to happiness, because a mind left to its own devices can become a dangerous place at times.  We do have the power to change how we think, the key is to start shifting our thoughts consciously from what we don't want or what we are tired of etc - to what we do want and what we are grateful for.   That energy multiplies (in either direction)

    Others here suggested prayer and if you are spiritual that's a good tool.  If you aren't a prayerful person that's ok too.  You don't have to pray to find happiness, not all of us are religious.   I practice meditation and I find with regular practice it does wonders because it allows me to free myself from mind chatter and worry etc and to access my higher awareness.  It is a break and it often leads to new inspirations and being able to see answers to my problems more clearly.

    I listen to motivational speakers to revive my hope and encourage myself like Joyce Meyer on Youtube and Dr.  Mark Chironna has great encouraging words daily on facebook about the storms of life, our dreams, trials.    I also read famous quotes on hope, life, happiness and so forth.

    Sometimes when we are depressed,even for good reason,we should try to think of things we can be grateful for. Living gratefully is one of the best ways to rise above the sad feelings. There is always something to be grateful for.Even the smallest things like having time for coffee in the morning or watching small children play.There are war-torn countries where people cannot do this,through no fault of their own. 
    I think of the single moms who have not enough food to feed their kids,no good clothes to send them to school. This would be a heavy burden to carry.
    There are so many things to be grateful for.Make yourself find them in your heart,even if you seem to have no place to turn,this will pass in time and you will be ok again.
