If you are feeling dreary, maybe something in this list might help.
Take A Dump
There are more sophisticated ways of saying this such as empty the bowels, but I prefer the direct way of saying it, so yes, take a dump. It may not be much, but sometimes it may be exactly what you need to make your day a little smoother, if you know what I mean.
Get Out of The House
You may think that your house is well ventilated, but you are just sucking in recycled carbon dioxide that you have just breathed out. You don’t have to do anything strenuous, just a short walk around the block or park will make you feel so much better.
Have A Shower
Have a cold shower, to be exact. The coldness of the water will wake up every cell in your body; so there’s no way you can feel dreary.
Treat Yourself To A Good Meal
You can either cook it yourself or have it at a good restaurant. Go for things like lasagna or macaroni and cheese. They are called comfort food because they are there to provide comfort.
Meet A Friend
Stop feeling sorry for yourself and go out to meet some friends. Have a quick lunch or dinner and you will be surprised at how much better you feel after that.
Watch A Movie Alone
Stop waiting for someone to watch that movie with you, what’s wrong with watching a movie by yourself? It’s easier to get seats, and you can watch whatever you want. You may not have someone to hug in the cinema, but you can always bring your bolster along.
This is the time when you are allowed to pamper yourself. Forget about the diet for one day and order a two-for-one Canadian pizza. Gorge yourself senseless with chocolates or drink to your heart’s content. Whatever makes you happy.
Music and Songs
Watch cancer-stricken, tears-flowing Korean drama serials or listen to sad songs. Cry it all out. You will feel much better after you have gotten some of the unhappiness out of your system.
Write A Journal
Writing it down helps, at least it helps me. Write whatever comes to your mind. You can choose to publish it on a blog or you can keep it hidden in your computer or laptop like I do. Quoting Stefan from The Vampire Diaries, “Memories are too important to be forgotten”.
List of Things
List down a list of things to be done and get them done by the end of the day. When you have crossed out everything on that list, you will have a sense of accomplishment that you have spent your day well.
