Jump. Seriously. A few weeks ago, I was feeling depressed and my brother said to me "you should do a jump", so I did, and I felt much better. It sounds silly, but it works.

Writing diaries is a great thing. I agree with glitter695 on that one. I just write my thoughts on pieces of paper sometimes and afterwards, staple it into an old school exercise book - it works out pretty well.
I love playing with the neighbour's kids; they're just so sweet and innocent.
I love playing the piano or writing songs - it makes the time pass.
Smile If you do, it improves your mood. Just start smiling. I forget the reasoning behind why it works... perhaps endorphines or something, but it is supposed to. So smile!!!!

1. Talk to my best girl friend 2. Watch a movie with someone I think is sexy in it 3. Sing at the top of my lungs 4. Cry a whole lot (really, it helps!) 5. Pace back and forth to music 6. Eat cheese 7. Take a relaxing bath 8. Masturbate!
--Ruth <hoping she's not the only one who does #8 >
------------------ I laugh in the face of danger. Then I hide until it goes away.
Sing, act, listen to music, or come barrie my face here in the boards! I feel so much better afterwards. A hot shower works too...
------------------ If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home There's an awful lot of breathing room But I can hardly move If you're gone - baby you need to come home 'Cause there's a little bit of something me In everything in you ~Sexy Rob Thomas, 'If You're Gone.'
No Ruth, you are not the only one who does "Number 8." In fact, I was going to suggest it until you did!
Other than that, a nice dip in the pool can make me feel better on a hot summer day...and a nice dip in a hot tub can raise my spirits on a cool winter one. I guess the troubles really do float away when you're comfy in some water!
------------------ It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...
