Re: What makes you happy when your down?

Today I was feeling down and tired when I got home, so I chucked on some good music and danced around the house Smiley Happy

Re: What makes you happy when your down?

Great post. Today I could feel myself getting into a down funk so I went and shot some hoops at the local basketball court just to clear my head a bit. When I got home I made a big effort to sit with my family and be in conversation. The last part was really hard but I did it and I was able to pull myself out. And I feel so much better now Smiley Happy

Re: What makes you happy when your down?

This is going to sound mean, but recently at school whenever I walk past my old teacher, she was a terrible teacher, I smile and think 'she's not my teacher anymore' and it immediately lifts my mood. 

And my new favourite cartoon X-Men Evolution. It has four seasons and is about - that's right - the X-Men. I'm already rewatching it and am onto season two. I cannot express to you how much I love this show. From a massive fangirl of Marvel and X-Men, watching this show is just so awesome... words cannot explain how much this show means to me.

Re: What makes you happy when your down?

I was totally going to make a thread about this but decided to have a look for one instead. So glad that someone has already thought of it. Smiley Happy

 

I love looking at adorable photos of my nephews and nieces, especially if there are videos of them. The majority of the time, I manage to smile, but sometimes, it just makes me breakdown even more.

 

However, I do love looking at baby animals. They are so cute and adorable! Sometimes they even make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

At the moment, I alternate between this (cute baby elephants) and baby sloths crying for their mums. Smiley Happy

 

Does anyone have any links that they want to share? I'm definitely a visual person.

The song Happy by Pharrell Williams. I don't know why just hearing the word 'happy' makes me feel happier!

Now I've got the song stuck in my head. I'll have to go listen to it. I love the lyric video, just because of the minions Smiley Very Happy

Finishing a new video that took me ages. Makes me happy seeing all the feedback pour in, good or bad.
