"It's not about forcing happiness, it's about not letting the sadness win,"
The Wonder Years
So we all have our moments when we're feeling – as the title of this article states – less than awesome. Whether it's because our pet of four years just died, or we had a fall out with our partner or whatever the case. Of course there's the cliché "you get over it soon", but what about the recovery stage; the "How do I make myself feel better" stage.
Feeling lonely? Take a warm bath.
Hot water can relieve tension and soothe stiff muscles while also amp-ing up your oxytocin levels that ease anxiety. A hot bath also acts as a natural decongestant to help relieve cold symptoms as the steam clears nasal passages.
Be gentle, supportive and patient.
