yes hi hello so i have noticed a lot of people are sad lately, and that’s no good at all. but the worst thing about being sad is not wanting to do anything and not knowing what to do to feel happy again? so here’s a masterpost of things for when you’re sad or just want to be cheered up.

things for when you are sad

  1. playlist to listen to (here)
  2. shows to watch (here
  3. movies to watch (here
  4. websites to visit (here)

things to do when you’re sad (cont.)

  1. watch some feel good movies (sit down and watch a comedy, it won’t solve the problem but smiling can’t hurt)
  2. listen to some feel good songs (listen to poppy, upbeat music to bring your mood up)
  3. watch shows that don’t take a lot of effort to enjoy (for instance a sitcom, something that you don’t need to be emotionally invested in to enjoy)
  4. watch your favourite videos on youtube (especially videos of dogs and cats and other cute animals)
  5. fill in colouring books/pages (this sounds silly but it helps a lot!!)
  6. draw or paint; the feel of the brush/pen on paper is calming 
  7. write stories or journal entries or even just ramblings into a book, letting things out can help a lot even if you feel a bit silly about it

things to invest in for when you’re sad

  1. canvases (can be bought in opp shops and dollar stores for a few dollars, and craft shops though they are more expensive there)
  2. paint brushes and paint (can also be found in dollar stores and craft stores)
  3. colouring books and pencils (can be calming to feel the pen against paper)
  4. notebooks (the more the better, having a different notebook for different things (i.e. one for writing stories, one as a diary of sorts, one to organize things, etc) can be helpful!!)
  5. a stress ball (can be made (tutorial here) if you want something more personalised) 
  6. a snow globe (if you’re feeling super stressed or anxious, shake it up and watch all the pieces fall to the bottom; repeat if necessary)
  7. knitting needles and yarn (learning how to knit is a good way to calm yourself down, you can spend ages making scarves and not realise just how long you spent doing so)
