What do you do when you’re feeling depressed?
How do you get back on your feet and face the day?
There are a lot of ways to work through this distressing phase, and we all have different techniques for coping.
Some of us allow ourselves to hit rock bottom because we believe we will eventually turn things around and recover; others immediately find a way to divert their attention from whatever it is that is bringing them down.
Whichever type you are, there is no denying that a little dose of laughter can go a long way toward helping. Finding something that can make you happy for a while can help shift your mood and set you on the path to recovery.
