Do Tell: What's Your Uplifting Fix?

Do Tell: What's Your Uplifting Fix?

Sometimes when you're feeling blue — you got demoted or broke up with your boyfriend — the smallest thing can pep you up, just like that. For some it's ordering your favorite comfort food, for others it's splurging on that top you had your eye on but couldn't justify buying, and for still others, it's as simple as calling up your best friend for a good old fashioned vent session. Treating yourself always makes you feel better, and while I'm not an advocate of giving into your vices every time the going gets tough, I admit I like to do a little of all three when I've had a bad day! So what about you? Do tell, what's your instant upper when you're feeling down?

Starbucks cafe mocha. Chocolate & coffee together - what could be better than that?! Otherwise, Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Are we seeing a trend here?

Either go browsing at the mall (If I really want, I'll splurge on one item); napping/watching hours of mindless TV; eating a GOOD MEAL (I call my boyfriend up, and instantly, I have a dinner companion and a free meal); or I call my boyfriend and he comes over, day or night, to console me like a baby; sometimes, exercise.

Watching Sex and the City. It always makes me feel better, no matter what.

Read or watch something that'd make me laugh for at least a good solid minute. Gigglesugar can be good for this. Or something like this: http://chinglish.de/

Without a doubt, listening to music. Preferably spending some time alone, but still talking it out with friends over the phone or online. And probably some form of carbs.

I go shopping. Or, if I'm at home, I put on my biggest pieces of fine jewelry, and relax on the couch. Bling jewelry makes me happy. :)

Bottle of wine..or two. ;) I like to cook as well...when I'm angry or upset, I mull things over while I'm cooking which takes my mind off of the problem.
