15 things to do when you’re feeling sad

Feeling sad is a normal and natural emotion, but it can be challenging to know what to do when you’re experiencing it. Here are 15 things you can try when you’re feeling sad:

  1. Talk to someone: Reach out to a trusted friend or family member and share how you’re feeling. Talking about your emotions can help you feel heard and supported.
  2. Practice self-care: Take a relaxing bath, light some candles, or do something else that makes you feel good.
  3. Write it out: Write down your thoughts and emotions in a journal. This can help you process your feelings and gain a new perspective.
  4. Get some fresh air: Take a walk outside or spend some time in nature. This can help clear your mind and improve your mood.
  5. Listen to uplifting music: Put on your favourite music and let it lift your spirits.
  6. Practice mindfulness: Engage in mindful activities such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises.
  7. Do something creative: Draw, paint, write, or create something that inspires you.
  8. Get moving: Exercise releases endorphins, which can improve your mood. Go for a run, take a fitness class, or just dance around your living room.
  9. Practice gratitude: Write down three things you’re grateful for, no matter how small.
  10. Watch a funny movie or TV show: Laughter can be the best medicine when you’re feeling down.
  11. Treat yourself: Buy yourself something small that makes you happy, like a new book or a favourite snack.
  12. Volunteer: Helping others can be a powerful way to improve your own mood and sense of purpose.
  13. Connect with a pet: Spending time with a furry friend can be a great way to boost your mood.
  14. Practice self-compassion: Be kind to yourself and recognise that it’s okay to feel sad sometimes.
  15. Seek professional help: If your sadness persists or is affecting your daily life, don’t hesitate to seek help from a mental health professional.
