I find that going for a walk is good for me for many reasons... When I'm depressed, it makes me feel better (and with a good shower as well), when I am angry it calms me down.. It just sucks that the weather here is in the 100's with the heat index- last week it was 114. I can't walk to the gym in that weather, and so I have to take the bus there and back. Burning candles and bubble baths make me feel better, but they don't involve exercise. I can't wait until the weather goes down so I can start going for my walks again.

I just read this article on Spark and it was timely. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellnes

I have found that the following from the article help me tremendously and I believe what has been helping me lately on not going into depression. I can implement a few more of the suggestions though. What do you do to alleviate your mood on a daily basis?

My current mood boosters:
- waking up to journal writing with a happy mood playlist on Spotify playing in the background;
- making and drinking my de-cafe white mocha... I only drink it in the morning so I feel it's not too much of an indulgence;
- lighting fragrance in my home (one during the day in the main living space and one in the evening in the bedroom for sleep inducing);
- reading;
- sticking to a consistent sleep schedule even on the weekends even though I hate going to bed earlier than the rest of the family;
- going to bed writing in my journal with a sleepy mood playlist on Spotify playing

Ones that I want to implement:
- eat at regular intervals with protein included
- ramping up B-12 and folate;
- walking for 15-minutes in the early morning before my day officially starts;
- make it a point of listening for 15-minutes to music from my own playlists;
- bring more regular joy other than reading such as writing, coloring, etc.;
- create and keep to a consistent daytime schedule (I've got the evening worked out finally!)

It seems like so much work for us to keep things even keel... I'm slowly coming to this realization and acceptance.
