[CHAT]: Sad feels - how to deal

The chat will kick off at 8pm AEST, Monday 8th of August 2016.

It’s normal to feel down or sad at different times, and for a whole range of reasons. In fact, most people feel sadness at some time or other in their lives.

 

Society tells us that we must feel happy all the time in order to live a healthy and successful life, but life has ups and downs, so it’s impossible to remain happy all the time. It’s okay to feel sad sometimes especially in response to stressful life events, but usually these feelings go away with time.

Feeling sad can look like crying, losing interest in activities that you used to enjoy, changes in sleeping patterns and/or appetite and withdrawing from others.

 

It can be difficult to know what to do when sadness becomes a problem, and when to seek help if feeling down is impacting on other aspects of your life. We might feel guilty or ashamed about feeling sad (even though these feelings are very common!) which can make it harder to cope. Luckily, there are many strategies that we can use manage these feelings, and look after our wellbeing.

 

 

Join myself and @Myvo on Monday 8th August at 8pm AEST to talk about how to manage and cope when you feel sad.

Let's get started! Our first question of the night is:

 

What makes you feel sad?

Re: [CHAT]: Sad feels - how to deal

Hello everyone!

 

Hm, a lot of things make me sad but I'd say the key ones are stressful stuff around uni, work, and relationships.
