When you feel crap you just feel crap.
But can you take a positive step? Do a positive action? Even while feeling low cruddy rough angry depressed?
Can you… go for a walk – read a book – write a poem – paint a picture – sing a song – ride a bicycle – run run run – swim like a flounder – write a thank you note – cook a meal – or just sit and count your breaths?
Can you do a positive action? Instead of purely wallowing in whatever you feel? And instead of just zoning out in front of a screen that’s pouring information into your brain?
