Good morning from New York.
I have been tagged with the question about ways to cheer up, so thought I would start a little bit blue and see where this goes.
Sometimes, just listening to music is good; almost always dancing to music is even better.
Going for a walk and watching what is going on all around is a good shake up of the status quo.
Housecleaning can take care of dust on furniture, floors, and give a rinse to one's mood, too.
Reading, book or magazine or even ... a blog ... can help to change the mood station.
For me, drawing or painting will always take me to a totally different state of mind.
And, of course, I have some terrific friends to connect with and share both good and not so good times.
I realize I have gone past five, but maybe even taking a nap (getting caught up on rest) can be cheering. And then there are all those food groups!
All of these methods seem obvious when one is not down in a particular dump, but can be quite handy to call upon in gloomier moments.
Now, let's have a big smile!
