Life is not always moonshine and roses. There are those days when you feel really down and despondent. What can you do to give yourself a lift?

Take action:
Get some exercise – this will boost your feel-good hormones; phone a friend – a kind voice on the other end of the telephone can sometimes make you feel a thousand times better; eat something – a sandwich might make you feel better instantly, especially if your blood sugar levels are low; bury yourself in a book – there's nothing like a really interesting story to take your attention off your own troubles; get out into nature – a walk on the mountain or a visit to the beach is guaranteed to lift your spirits; take a nap – often you just need a little sleep to perk you up a bit.
