Would you like to participate in a "Brighten The Day" for a friend today?

Asked by Kardamom (30424points) September 23rd, 2018

One of our members has been through some rough times recently, with school and work, and has been feeling overwhelmed and depressed. I won’t mention her name, because you probably all know to whom I am referring.

Today, I would like to invite you all to post something funny, or useful. It could be a funny cat video, a new delicious recipe you’ve tried recently, or a book or an idea you have used that has helped you to be less depressed or anxious in your own life.

I’ll go first.

When I’m sad or depressed, I go to YouTube, do a search for “babies laughing”, & then do what I call “link hopping”. I click on one of the options & after watching, I click on one of the recommends down the side, & then I continue clicking on the recommends until I catch myself laughing…or at the least smiling!!!

Babies sometimes transition over to puppies, kittens, elephants, foals, birds, calves, sometimes twin babies, etc.

Other times while just bored, I pick a word & do a similar search on YouTube & then begin my link hopping. I’ve found things that I would have NEVER seen had I just waited to discover them.

This also works by doing a google search & seeing what links come up. Yes, it can be pretty much a waste of time; yet, it occupies the mind & takes it on a journey that pushes out any sadness & helps to quieten the depression.
