When you’re feeling down, get yourself back up

When you’re feeling down, get yourself back up.” It’s simple advice for people feeling low and who have no hope for doing better.

There’s always those days that puts you in a slump and you’re just moody throughout the week. This probably happens when someone you hate or love or admire dumps you, makes you feel hurt, or says something bad about you or to you. If that’s not it then it’s probably because no one is talking you, or everything just goes wrong that day.  You thought something good was going to happen, was anticipating for it, and it doesn’t happen.

So, instead of feeling all sad and depressed go have some fun, and cheer yourself up.

For example, do the hokey pokey or cupid shuffle with your siblings,parents, or friends. Trust me it might be silly and weird, but IT CHEERS YOU UP SO MUCH.

There are other things you can do to get your mind of the topic such as, watching comedy movies  while eating butter popcorn, or doing some yoga to push the negative aura away. A 95-year-old yoga master, Tao Lynch, is still living today from the peace and exercise of yoga.  Her principles and practices are currently being taught from generation to generation.  “There is nothing we cannot do if we harness the power within us,” she said.

Yoga isn’t the only way to re-build your inner self.

Meditating is also a good idea, but if you can’t sit still and keep feeling distracted, Stop. Meditating won’t help if you can’t stay calm.

A former monk, Saiha Mon, expressed his feelings of meditating by saying, “I feel as though I’m floating in air, when I meditate.” Many followers of his also said, “There’s nothing to feel and think when meditating, and that’s the reason why I meditate. Nothing brings me down when I’m in control. My mind is at rest, and my body is connected to how I control my thoughts. ”

Meditating doesn’t always have to be the answer. You can talk to someone close to take some weight off your chest. They’ll understand, and will try to help you out.

I suggest you ride a bike, take a nice walk, bake a cake, and MAKE YOURSELF laugh.  Nothing’s better than a good laugh when you’re all down in the dumps.

Scream out how you are feeling or sing until you break your lungs. Listen to music and imitate your favorite singer, band, or whoever to make you feel like a ROCK STAR.

If you just want to stay indoors and be simple then make yourself something to eat or drink,  read a good book, or drink a lot of water, you might not believe me but it’s real good for you.

Well, if your that crazy person that likes making weird noises and sounds to feel better and smile, go ahead.  Anything you try will uplift your mind, body, and soul.

Don’t be depressing, and start adjusting. If you’re not willing then you’re killing yourself for giving up. Stay positive.
