What do you do to cope when you’re feeling bad?

Things I do:

  • Get on one of my writing sites
  • Play with pets
  • Play an online game or a game on my phone
  • Talk to fiance or a friend
  • Go to a support group

I used to talk to my dog when she was still around, before I have my children. She was such a good listener.

Things I usually do now:

  • Meditate or pray
  • Sit down and just calm myself
  • Keep doodling or simply scribbling
  • Keep drinking water
  • Write down my feelings on blog or paper
  • Participate in these writing sites
  • Read some articles
  • Watch a video
  • Do some handwork (crocheting or knitting)
  • Do housework (such as cleaning)
  • Spend time with my children
  • Go for a walk
  • Talk to my husband
  • Just sleep or lay down

Thank you for sharing  those websites. 🙂

I think journaling is a very good way to understand our feelings better. Sleep has always been good for me. Mindfulness is so important. Being aware of our feelings and having a good support system is wonderful. I have severe depression with panic attacks. I live with my daughter who is bi-polar and her son who has ODD. Not fun at times.  Very challenging.

Whenever I am feeling depressed, I tell myself i have only a limited amount of time in this world, and i refuse to spend it in misery.

Writing always helps so does a walk, meditation, prayers, crying and some ice cream.

But above all, support must come from within ourselves. Because once we allow depression to overwhelm us it is very difficult to get rid of negative thoughts.

For me playing with pets work. I also listen to EDM and trance music. Most likely that two alone can stop most of the anxiety that I get. Also the amount of effort it needs for me to get back into the real world requires more effort. So I do sketching. I also read something inspirational. That may slowly helps out too. But from the way things work around I think talking to parents always helps. So you just have to be responsive and take things slow.
