Coping Skills for the Depress


Kick the Royal butt of anyone you know that says "What do you have to be depressed about?"
"Jiggle" your money to last the whole month. Pray checks are not posted until the money is really there in a few days. (It's getting harder to do with the new electronic checks.)

Try to hide your feelings that you can't trust people any more.  Lie and act like every thing is fine. 

Touch the back of you neck.  It is where "stress lives" and you can't outrun it. So sit up straight and breathe.

Remember your loved one's voice.  Listen to that one instead of the one you often hear in your own head.

Don't punish yourself by looking at recent photos and think, how gross, old, fat, etc.

Treat yourself to something outrageously expensive.  It will hurt, but the fun will be worth it.

Kiss your kids and let them know you love them.

Eat healthy one day a week, then two, then more.  Ice cream is a health food basic.... ?No?

Make art happen in your life and in those around you.

Phiff--- to talent, make art everyday and pitch out the bad stuff.  Trash can lids can be re-opened up until the trash man comes.

Dream, Eat, Sleep, Pray, Travel, find a lover... (or a dog!)
Help out other humans.  They are nothing like you, and that is good.

Toxicity

Toxic thinking will make you very sick.
A quilter I know just from FB recently posted this article.  I am definitely one of those people who can't let things go.

I had two plans on this past Fourth of July.  I was to enjoy the community street fair and quilt.  Mostly quilt as I am trying to meet a deadline. 

Instead my washing machine breaks down- water floods my laundry and living room and I am mopping up, finding fans to blow on the walls, towel drying what I could, and then spending time at a laundromat getting towels washed and dried. My new floors are warped!

WHY ME? My rant went on in my head for hours.
