OT - Down today

I feel lousy - emotionally, physically, etc. Weekend argument with dh, long week at work, and morning ear-beating by my boss. I need a pick-me-up. Suggestions?

Go for a walk, go shopping, do a crafty project (make a card for someone), play a game online (I recommend Text Twist), plan to veg out later, go out for a great healthy lunch (salads are better when someone else makes them)

Walk! Breathe deep, listen to some of your favorite relaxing music. Call a friend who always makes you laugh.

Get a massage - whether it's a 10-minute backrub in a chair at a salon or the whole shebang. Lots of feelgood chemicals will flood your mind and body.

Go see a movie - pure escapism, ignore the world...but skip the Milk Duds.

Do something child-like - my favorite is to go to a park and swing on a swing. It takes me right back to a more carefree time. Hopefully you live somewhere with decent weather.

Do you have some gal pals you could grab? That always lifts me up more than anything. We go for a walk, coffee or sometimes happy hour, but just getting out with the girls and being able to tap into that friendship and support helps me keep my sanity. Even if all I do is listen to their problems (though they're always there for me). Somehow venting to dh doesn't have the same effect. Us girls keep each other going.

If none of my friends is available we usually plan an outing for later in the week and I hit the gym or the garden (depending on what time of year it is). Having that to look forward to helps me keep a better outlook and roll with it better when I hit the bumps in the road. My husband takes me out at the end of each week too and that has the same effect. I love having our friday date to look forward to (and it doesn't have to cost a lot or be fancy).

I can do solo activities, but nothing helps me when I'm down like my friends. Best wishes!
