34 things to do when sad

Hey readers,

I suffer with depression and sometimes it can be easy to get stuck in feeding into the negative thoughts. What I sometimes find helpful is to stop and do something productive. So I have wrote a list of helpful things (also I go to when complete forget everything).

1.  Read a newspaper.

2. Colour in.

3. Meditation.

4. Go for a coffee.

5. Practice handwriting.

6. Go to the shop and buy a magazine.

7. Read a book.

8. Clean (wash up, hoover, put clothes away etc).

9. Shower.

10. Take a walk.

11. Doodle.

12. Mind map – blog ideas etc.

13. Hot cup of tea.

14. Wear a chunky jumper.

15. Cook a recipe.

16. Brush hair/plait hair.

17. Watch mindful videos.

18. Watch something funny.

19. Write poetry.

20. Play with clay – get creative.

21. Take some photos.

22. Paint nails.

23. Sing a song.

24. Dance your heart out.

25. Walk through woodlands.

26. Watch the sun setting.

28. Stroke a furry animal

30. Light a candle.

31. Watch clouds.

32. Deep breathing.

33. Squeeze a stress ball.

34. Write down three positive things in your life.

Cheers for reading X

  1. Fabulous list of ideas! Although coffee would be top of my list. 😉 I guess the most important thing is just to do something – anything – and try to keep going. Best wishes, hon. I won’t say, “you can do it.” I can see for myself that you *are* doing it. I hope today is a good day for you. x #MMBC
