After you have been depressed awhile, the cycle of negative thoughts can make it seem like an impossible task to find joy anywhere.
To help pull oneself out of these negative moods, different things can be effective – some go for walks (especially in nature), some listen to music, some look for creative outlets (like painting or playing a musical instrument). I was feeling a bit gloomy the other day and began to look for positive things. They really are everywhere. I saw the rainbow in the photo below from my window at home. The view helped my mood and I hope it has helped yours, too.
Find things you enjoy and even when you feel down – especially when you feel down – treat yourself. Positives are everywhere!
