Put your favorite movie
It doesn’t matter what kind of movie you like, what matters is that it’s a movie that makes you feel good while you watch it. It can be scary, suspenseful, romantic, or comedy. The option is up to you. You will not feel sad watching the movie and if you also have a little chocolate or some popcorn, it will be even better.

Take a nap
Taking a nap will help you rest and disconnect even a little. Sleep is wonderful, the body rejuvenates and repairs you both mentally and physically. Sure, you could wake up from a nap and be grumpy, but if that happens, take another nap until you feel better!
Take a walk and enjoy the fresh air
If you feel sad, get off the couch, leave the house, and take a deep breath. Breathe like when you take a long car trip and finally reach your destination. Or when you go to the beach and you can enjoy the aroma of the sea for the first time. Walk and keep walking. Don’t think about anything, just observe your surroundings and keep breathing … you will oxygenate your mind and feel much better. Take the test …. You will be surprised.
Play your favorite music at full volume, and sing along!
There is one thing you can learn about music and that is that if you make it loud, you can’t help but sing. Even if you feel a little sad and don’t feel like singing at first, a few minutes and you will be singing with all your heart. This will work best if you go alone in the car and play the song that you like the most. Although if you are too depressed, then you better not drive because it can be dangerous.
Buy what you want if you can afford it, or just walk around window shopping. If you feel bad and buy something that you consider pleasant or go out to have a meal that you like, it is your way of telling yourself that you are worth it and you deserve it. You deserve all the good that happens to you … and if it doesn’t, create that wonderful moment yourself!
Hug an animal
If you have your pet, it will be easy for you because he will give you all his unconditional love without asking for anything in return. Their fluffy fur and cute little faces make it almost impossible for someone hugging them to feel sad. Studies have shown that petting a cat or dog not only improves physical ailments, but also relieves natural stress and helps reduce anxiety. Depressed? Hug your cat / dog. Don’t have a pet? Visit a friend with a nice pet and ask for permission to hug him and give him your love.
Call your best friend
Call the first person you usually call when something important happens, be it your best friend, your mother, your grandmother, or a brother. Whoever it is is probably the person whose voice makes you feel a little better in times of sadness . You don’t even have to tell them something is wrong; just tell them you wanted to call to see how they are doing and have a conversation.
