    I snuggle up to my hubby with a feel-good movie. Or have some chocolate ice cream. Or pet my kitties.

    What cheers you up?

    I generally call a friend and get to laffin. I hate being blue! I spent over half my life being unhappy. So now its laff laff and be a weirdo. Sometimes i need to call more than one person. Good thing my long distance is free.

    I call my youngest daughter and talk to her and the little ones! It reminds me that Nana is very loved, and always lifts my spirits.

    I eat - bad for me I know, and lately I have been managing not to do that so often, so I ring a friend, or come here.

    I like to be alone and listen to music, that really cheers me up. Or I cuddle my kitties, and have a good cry to get it out of my system, and ring my mum.

    I generally go find some real sunlight. It tends to help. A nice feel-good movie also helps.

    anything that makes me laugh.

    I start working as hard as I can, clean house, mow, make bread, it really makes nice bread when you knead the dickens out of it lol. I guess I'm weird but working seems to change my mood and attitude

    Oh how I envy you. I eat, sleep and read this board. And do nothing else. Oh, a little valium never hurts any either.

    Take a nice nap...a nice bubble bath...clean house...go shopping...read a book. Usually one of these does the trick.

    Sleep or eat. It depends on how "Blue" I feel. Sometimes I read the board. One day I was so down I actually posted on the board for some help! And help came fast. Thanks everyone!
