                                                          Ways to Lift Your Spirits

 

If you are feeling lonely and depressed, here is a list of things you can do to lift your spirits.

  • Be thankful. Think about what you have. This sounds like the whole “count your blessings” thing all over again, but it really is important.
  • Remember good times you’ve had with family and friends.
  • Keep yourself busy. If your energy is focused outward you’ll be less likely to obsess about things you can’t change.
  • Do not isolate yourself in your room.
  • Try to smile, and laugh at jokes that you think are funny. Don’t put on a fake smile all the time, but just smile when you feel like it.
  • Talk to a trustworthy friend about how you’re feeling. It will make you feel a lot better.
  • Write down your thoughts on a piece of paper. Just keep writing, then when you’re done, shred the paper and get rid of it!
  • Sneak a candy into a friend’s pocket – let them wonder how it got there.
  • Learn to do something new, like how to make a tree ornament or do HTML code.
  • Have dessert for dinner and dinner for dessert.
  • Read a book that makes you laugh.
  • Listen to an uplifting song as loud as you like it.
  • Rearrange your room.
