When you have a bad day what makes you feel better?

Asked by Brenna_o (1776points) August 23rd, 2010

When you feel like crap, or are just pissed off in general what makes you feel better?

I think my kitty, and talking to a special somebody makes me feel better :)

I agree. Snuggling with my cat makes me feel better.

A long, hot shower and music at top volume (though not at the same time.)

My son always seems to be able to make me smile when I’m having a bad day. Just hearing my husband’s voice makes me smile and fills my heart.

Usually some music with a cup of coffee or a nap does the trick.

Someone to rub my stress away.

Quiet contemplation
Of recompense, strategies for day next
A four-finger scotch does not hurt
Kindred soul helps to convert
Forgetful eyes, enabling eyes
Your soul to conquer me, and pervert

Death Metal and “More Death” Metal.
Can’t be implying I’m not angry for good reasons.

Time heals all wounds, and it is especially good at turning a bad day into tomorrow.

I grab my Teddy bear and cry for a bit, then I talk to my boyfriend then sleep.

Humming, whistling or singing a cheerful tune always cheers me up. It’s pretty amazing.

Also: often when I’m getting irritable, it’s a sign that I’ve been putting breakfast/lunch/dinner off for too long and my blood sugar levels are complaining about it. So getting off the internet for a minute to grab a bite often helps too.

Why my sunny disposition of course….oh & the kids help enormously too ;¬}

Talking to Qingu and seeing him over the computer if we’re not in the same city.

woodcutter's avatar

I will say to myself that I’m probably having a better day than thousands of people somewhere.

Austinlad's avatar

Getting away from the office and willing myself not to think about work at home.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Music, music, music!

And ice cream.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

Lots of skin-to-skin contact with a certain lady. Her positive attitude flows into me.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Take a walk and look at birds and other animals.

le_inferno's avatar

Definitely talking it out with someone helps, snuggling up to some good TV and good food.

CMaz's avatar

Usually the next day does.

downtide's avatar

Take my dog for a long walk, or go for a run.

Sex and chocolate.

Meditation and sleep.

Akua's avatar

Snuggling up on the sofa with a pint of butter pecan ice cream, with my cats rolling around in my lap purring and stroking my arms with their paws and heads. Reading a great book that makes me laugh and/or cry, watching “House” and “Law&Order” reruns. My husband rubbing my feet and stroking my hair. Running on the treadmill for an 30 minutes makes me feel invigorated, powerlifting at the gym makes me feel powerful.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

A wrestling match ;)

Neizvestnaya's avatar

For someone I believe in to tell me it will all be okay.

Brenna_o's avatar

@Akua I love house reruns too!

Akua's avatar

@Brenna_o isn’t House incredible? I told my husband if he wasn’t my husband, I’d want to date House.

CaptainHarley's avatar

I’m getting ready to get the entire 6th Season to watch at the end of the month. Most popular TV series are available from NetFlix, to which we belong. : ))

Akua's avatar

I’m a Netflix member too. I love all the cable TV series they have available. House, Dexter, Weeds, etc…

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

A good single-malt Scotch can help take the edge off.

CaptainHarley's avatar

Hah! I take a drink of Scotch and shudder for an hour! : )

daytonamisticrip's avatar

@Akua you watch Dexter?

Akua's avatar

@daytonamisticrip I love Dexter. And Nurse Jackie and Weeds. You?

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Nurse Jackie and weed look ok but Dexter. That is the one about the killer, right?

Akua's avatar

Yes he’s a serial killer but trust me it’s funny. I had doubts about it too. I ran across it accidentally and have enjoyed it ever since. He has a code about who he kills and who he thinks deserves to die.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Chills just ran up my spine, I can’t watch shit like that. Sorry about my language. I don’t care if it’s meant to be funny IT’S TWISTED. And it reminds me of what i’ve done. (nothing illegal, but very much immoral).

Akua's avatar

Yea it’s a bit twisted but I can’t help but enjoy it.
