  • Nice article and I fully agree with the ideas, however, like others, when I get down, the motivation to get up and do those things is what is causing the problem. It's not clinical depression, but just lifestyle issues, and overcoming them can seem overwhelming and exhausting. Once I get going I'm ok, but sometimes I need to address a deeper issue to get out of my funk... - 11/9/2014 9:42:51 PM

    Good Common Sense, but if someone really struggles, talk to a doctor about depression, please. - 10/12/2014 1:56:59 PM
  • I look for all types of articles to help with my low mood swings since being diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 and gaining 60lbs. I have stopped my walking program due to serious health problems and as you can see with the enormous weight gain, its been like a domino effect on me and now my family. I loved being social, going outside and being active and now I am home everyday and not getting out but, watching my diet and going to dr. appts. I know I MUST CHANGE, its not always my choice to stay home, I just sometime's can't get myself out the door. I am a work in progress. Thank you for this article.

  • These are great suggestions for improving moods temporarily. I found more permanent relief from depressing moods through the Solutions method of learning some basic skills to rewire the brain developed by Laurel Mellon, author of The Pathway. Highly recommend her Solutions training! - 10/12/2014 8:46:12 AM

  • I read the article, and have seen similar suggestions in other books etc. They all sound good, but sometimes it's difficult to initiate when you're feeling sad about an event in your life such as the death of a close loved relative or a diagnosis of a disease that mkay cause you to have a shortened life span or undergo tests, and treatments that have uncomfortable side effects.
    What ifs can be a protective mechanism against the curves that life throws us. e.g. What if I became sick and need help with daily routines, or other situations? You handle the what ifs by taking steps to solve the problems before they occur.
    Rather than mask the symptoms of sadness i would rather uncover its causes, and find ways to deal with them.

  • I love these ideas! Sometimes, a smile in the right direction really can change the day!

    But as someone with bipolar disorder, I will say that doing positive things can make me feel better. But I can always tell when I am having one of my downswings and not just a blue mood because faking it doesn't make me feel better, it makes me feel tired, and thus more bad moody. - 8/27/2013 9:02:07 AM
