View Full Version : How do you cope?

When you're having a bad day, and you're just in a slum, what do you do to cheer yourself up?

I like to listen to music, and write or draw. Preferably with some calming incense (Nag Champa FTW) burning if I'm at home.

Play games that involve a lot of grinding. It takes my mind off stuff, which in turn makes me a happier person :3

I usually listen to music to calm me down or go for a walk in my neighborhood.

I listen to fast music like Telephone, Cyclone, and Doin' Your Mom.

Good songs, and they are cheerful. n_n

I talk to my fiance and he usually makes me feel better pretty fast :] Go for walks and ice cream and such.

If he's not around, I just stay depressed. Simple as that .-. though a movie or anime generally helps a bit.

Listen to music and try to switch myself off from everything. I like to be left alone if i'm having a bad day or i'm not feeling great.

I watch my most favorite video of HITT. The one where he speaks engrish because it always makes me giggle. :3 He can make me stop crying in a split second so my bad moods last for like... that long.

There's a couple songs I listen to that usually make me feel better, so I usually listen to those.

April 27th, 2010, 9:57 AM
I break things, or i beat up my pillow.

if it's something in particular, then i'll vent to one of my friends. but then it'd be awkward to start being funny so i usually call a different friend that i havent talked to and we'll eventually start laughing about random stuff :D and then i'll feel better ^-^

i'll also listen to music~

I don't feel mad or sad often, but if i do, that way I deal with it is that I eat food Dx. Ice Cream makes a bad day a lot better.

I try listening to happy music, but I find that I listen to the most depressing songs I have instead, haha.

Typically, I cope with it alone, doing the same things I usually do, except maybe with crying. Sometimes if the Internet is causing me all the stress, I drag myself off of it, or actually get on MSN to complain to people I know. :p I'm a dull person...

Personally, if I've had a bad day, usually I just sit down and think for a while.(Which usually leads to me falling asleep...) I occasionally listen to some Country and Western too. Usually just the thinking helps.

Writing a little poetry also sometimes helps(Especially with anger)

Why...why did I read that as "If you're having a baby in a slum"?

If I've had a bad day, I just let that bad ooze out of my system while doing homework or something and forget about it (I can do that incredibly well...just not at will). If it's particularly bad, I'll rant to my empty LJ or my girlfriend, but I'm a glass-half-full kinda guy and I don't really mind most things. ^^

I try to sleep, often it helps

April 29th, 2010, 8:43 AM
When I'm down or really had a bad day I watch Catherine Tate I watch some of her shows on youtube and they make me chuckle every time :L
or I talk to some one like a friend or a family member that always works ^^

hit curtis and cecil the squirrel twins ?

I don't. I just carry on. I can be quite depressive to be around if I am in a particulaly bad mood, but usually not much bothers me. Only really bad stuff. Glass-half-full is how I look at things.

April 29th, 2010, 12:26 PM
I wash my face and listen to some refreshing music. It actually helps at times. If that doesn't work out, I try to give it a hand at drawing. But most of the times I lie down and I calm down automatically.

April 29th, 2010, 1:54 PM
Usually, I lie down and close my eyes for as long as I think is right. Music doesn't help me usually. I might even fall asleep. =P

April 29th, 2010, 9:18 PM
Normally I eat something. Unhealthy, I know, but chocolate tastes especially good when you're feeling down...

Or I go to my room, have a good cry if I'm feeling really upset, and listen to some capsule to cheer me up.

If I ever have a bad day, I get on the computer, open up word, and write my stories like I normally do. Writing helps calm me down, whether I'm writing a battle scene, a conversation, a gruesome torture, or a description. Doesn't matter what, but it helps me calm down, and brighten my day.

(Not like I had to in the past two years, though.)

I cuddle up with my dog, always brightens up my day.

I watch a relaxing anime or listen to relaxing music and think of better times; those two things usually serve their purpose to cheer me up. I'm having a bad week right now, and listening to this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wump069hUw)has been improving my mood.
