    listen to music that makes my heart sing. Walk and get fresh air. Soak in a tub and have a glass of wine

    Talk to people. Any time you open up and let out how you feel, it lightens the burden to bear by yourself. If I can't reach friends or family, I go on Facebook and chat with people online.

    But I do like alphagirl's suggestion of having a glass of wine, along with some music to fit your mood.

    In moments of grief (like when I got dumped), I'd go on walks to process my emotions. Sometimes, a little cardio can release steam from your broken heart. And a nice view to stop and admire can make you feel comforted. If you feel "down and out," having a perspective of a vast opening with many options can make you feel like there is hope. A nice view (like an ocean or city view) can be therapeutic.

    And a hug can work wonders, too.

    Singing some nice karaoke songs can really cheer me up... or just a chat with a friend or on the phone...
    But the best thing that really helps me (please don't laugh!), is to eat any kind of fish, ... its something that I really enjoy and do helps me more than anything else...

    I get lost in a book. Sometimes living vicariously helps me get perspective. smile

    I hit the surf, go in the sunshine for some swimming, it's invigorating and makes me feel totally refreshed.

    There are times when I feel depressed and completely drained. I then think of god and meditate and give myself a pep talk. I completely relax watching my favorite shows and then gear myself up to meet my problems.
