A good night’s sleep is always helpful when I am down. Lack of sunshine and warmth can give me the blues and cause me to scurry to the comfort of a warm bed. Sufficient unto the day is the troubles thereof.
When I awake and my worries, anxieties or depression are still heavy on my mind I have a quick prayer, Help Lord.
Whatever time of the day if I am overcome with loneliness, despair or despondency I would get a cup of coffee and something sweet and relax. I would listen to some uplifting music, or a worship song. If there is one I really like I would play it over and over. I would pray for someone else or pick up the phone and talk to a friend and encourage them. If that fails I would share with my husband. He often sees things from a different perspective.
Having something to look forward to doing often gets me out of the blues. The down time will come to pass.
It is springtime. The time for singing of birds has come. I will sing and be joyful as well.
