Q. how do you lift your spirit during those tough days of economic depression?

A1just find an activity that will take your mind off things.(i.e.)fishing,games,puzzles,camping,etc.
A2Think about the positive things in your life, whether it's your child, your partner, lover, family, your gym class, anything. Just focus on the positive. Let that lift you up.

Go outside, get some fresh air and sun light.
A3Yes, Charles (cbellh47)is right. Drinking is the worst thing you can do. I try to go back to basics and do the things that I love the most. Spend time with people I love, friends and family. Also you can find community leaders such as Charles and many others that can fill your heart with love and support. Good luck.

Q. Where should i go when i feel down and lonely? is there like an independence way to lift my spirit?

A1I spend a lot of time in "my room". It has a window to look out and a comfortable chair to sit and think in. I can shut the door to get real quiet. I can read and study things. Reading gets my mind off of down feelings. There is also a time for going out walking. It frees my mind. When I come back I seem to have a new perspective on things. Sometimes I go and sit out in the woods for awhile where I live. I like listening to the birds and nature sounds. Its nice to see clouds going by in the sky or the stars at night. If something's really bothering you, call on someone you can trust and talk it out. Just find that activity that suits you best and get busy at it.
A2and most important- don't worry,I'm sure it seems bad now- but you'll be looking back to it soon and be thankfull for having a good life and health...

just kidding- feeling down and lonely happens to anybody. the best way is being with a loved one or if not there are organizations that can really help!! just understand that it's a feeling that will be over soon and that it's best to pass the next few hours in a place that someone will take care of you.
you can probably find adds in the local paper or health clinics.
and don't be tempt to use a permanent solution to a transient problem.
