    Make a hot cup of tea and read one of my favorite novels. They are specialized to create happiness, from my perspective.

    I tend to wallow in it. Maybe not the best advice, but that's what I do.

    I walk my dog. Or brush him. Sometimes I clean some part of the house and then take a long hot bath. Or, all of the above!

    Keep reminding myself that this feeling will pass and try to do something for someone else or just push myself to do something eg a walk, gardening, swimming as exercsie is very good for getting over a downer .
    If it's a bit stubborn and hangs around for a bit too long I try to see where it is coming from, analyse it to ge a better understanding of it...to be able to move on.
    Sometimes life is hard and some people get stuck in the pit of serious depression which must be very hard.
    My thoughts above are not related to serious depression but just the ups and downs of life.

    Quick fixes for me are a little chocolate, a warm blanket, and Funniest Home Video's. For true depression that lasts more than a day or two - exercise, get plenty of sunshine, take Vitamin D supplements, especially if you do not get much sinshine, hang out with friends, WRITE about your feelings, and do nice things for others. If the depression goes on longer than a couple weeks - please seek help from a professional - it could be a true depression or a nutirent deficiency that a professional can help with.
