A Thousand Ways to Beat the Blues



You can almost feel New England (and probably other places in the northern hemisphere) falling into a collective depression (aka winter blues) this time of year. There are lots of kinds of blues - winter blues, middle aged blues, post-partum blues. And then there's the kind of dark times when we deal with chronic illnesses, lose a loved one, plain old melancholia (the old fashioned word for depression). In one of the groups I'm in we have a thread to think of 100 Ways to Beat the Blues - but if we get to a thousand, that's okay, too! If you'd like to offer some ideas then leave a comment. :-) I thought it might be helpful for lots of us.

1. Buy a $3 Gerbera daisy to put on your windowsill and distract yourself from the 2 feet of snow outside.

2. Think of what you'd do for a very close friend if they were down and do it for yourself.

3. Drink water instead of _____________ (coffee....beer....Mojitos....Jolt....you get the drift). Stay hydrated, people!

Okay, I've started - I'll keep reposting until we get to 100.
