What to do when you're sad

Things feel a little rough today. And if you're also feeling like you need a pick-me-up, here's a list of things that can help when you're sad...

- Treat yourself - buy an icecream, a mocha etc. and don't feel bad about it because you deserve it.

- Write a letter. This can be to a friend or to yourself.

- Or just write. Open a notebook and get those thoughts out onto paper.

- Make lists.

- Light candles.

- Run a bath and spend as much time as you need soaking.

- Watch your favourite film (but not a sad one!)

- Get creative and make something.

- Or colour in.

- Go outside - take a walk, sit in the park, find a forest.

- Watch the sunset.

- Make a cup of tea.

- Cuddle your pet. Or any pet. But don't steal one.

- Bake.

- Eat baked goods.

- Put on fresh bed sheets.

- Buy new pyjamas.

- Talk it through with a friend. It helps to express your pain and know that somebody has got your back.

You will get there.
