Ways to SURVIVE Tough Times!!

In this day and age most everyone is going through tough times.
So I thought I would list some ways to cope.

(1) Go sit by a quiet lake, stream, or brook.
(2) Look at photo albums, remember the good times.
(3) Learn a new hobby.
(4) Read a good book.
(5) Crochet, knit or make a quilt.
(6) Sip some hot tea.
(7) Turn up your praise music and worship the LORD.
(8) Watch a funny movie.
(9) Eat some chocolate.
(10) Read your favorite blogs
(11) Go for a long drive in the country.
(12) Watch a sunset with that favorite person.

(13) Do something new

How do you cope?

Michelle, these are all excellent ideas! I do a bunch of them, especially going by water. I'm at such peace there. I know the march and ceremony finished at 3:40 ish and we Army moms were up praying until it was posted, but no, individually, I don't know how my son did. Thank you for asking and thank you for your prayers. God bless you!

I do many of the things you've listed...

Other things I do to destress are:
- clean something
- journal
- surf the net
- have some "just me" time
- bake something

I do all of those...except 3, 5, and 9.

Not one with a lot of hobbies, can't crochet or knit...and can't eat chocolate. (:>) But all the rest help me a lot.

These are great! My favorite way to de-stress is to get lost in a good book.

Great ideas! I find that singing hymns and reading Psalms really help me have a positive outlook.

I also enjoy bloghopping!

Thanks for these ideas, Michelle. I enjoy finding songs on You Tube with the lyrics printed and singing along or watching a worship service on the internet. (I don't have TV) I also think that washing dishes the old fashioned way in a sink of hot soapy water is relaxing!
