Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Sunday!
I hope you’re having a good day. But I realize that some people don’t always have good days. (In fact, I sometimes don’t have good days- as hard as that might be to believe.) But yeah. On with the post.
Things to do when Feeling Down
1) Run your hand through it. Then decide whether it’s worth putting into a pillow or comforter. After all, what’s the point of feeling down feathers if you’re not going to use them for something? And if you’re not, then you might as well put the down down. (Don’t you love English?)
2) Talk with a friend. This works for either type of “feeling down”. If you’re looking for feathers, then talking through the merits of the down with a friend can help you save money later on. If, however, you’re feeling emotionally down, friends can sometimes help lift your spirits.
3) Listen to music. Although this might not help with feathers, when you’re feeling emotionally down, music can do wonders. Some of my favorite music is minor music that’s a bit upbeat. For example, this lovely celtic gem:
Or, for the more Jewish sound, the first few minutes of this have some nice upbeat-minor-music. (Please ignore the visuals- they’re distracting):
4) Read a book. Preferably with Hot Tea or Chocolate or Coffee. This is recommended only for feeling emotionally down. (Although, you could very easily feel down in a comforter or pillow while feeling down emotionally.)
5) Draw a dress. This is one of my go-to’s for when I’m feeling down emotionally. It’s a little creative outlet. It doesn’t require that much time to get something basic, and there are nearly infinite ways to draw one. Do you want the skirt to be twirly? Form-fitting? Rouching on the bodice? Do you want there to be a variety of colors? Single color? The options are endless. And although drawing dresses isn’t productive per say, it’s still more productive than just sitting around feeling glum. So it works. At least for me.
What about you? Do you do something in particular when you’re feeling down?
