#222.....It will be alright, I promise.

Remedies for sleepless or disappointment heart

Write. Wrap yourself up in a blanket, grab a notebook and a pen and write until your hand hurts. Write about what’s on your mind and why it’s bothering you. Just getting things out in a completely uncensored way can be incredibly therapeutic. I say uncensored because you’re speaking to paper and, more importantly, to yourself. So you don’t want to worry about how you phrase things or if they would make sense to anyone else. You just let it all out.

Go for a walk. Get out of the house and get some physical activity. Simply moving will help you to feel better, and is infinitely better than staying at home curled up in a ball and wallowing in your misery. While you’re walking really look around you. Look at the sky and appreciate the way the clouds delicately move across the blue canvas. Look at the people passing by and remember that you aren’t alone, they are probably hurting in their own way too. Just soak in your surroundings and, as much as possible, appreciate the beauty in it all.

Hang out with close friends. You don’t have to talk about why you’re upset, maybe you just need to discuss movies and music and school to get your mind off matters. The remedial powers of laughing with people that you love and who love you can totally transform your heart. Never underestimate how much better you can feel after spending some time in the company of good friends.

Drink tea. If you’re anxious, it will calm you. If you’re sad, it will comfort you. Tea has the remarkable ability to cheer people up and is nearly like a warm, liquid hug. As it trickles down your throat and begins to warm your whole body you might just find your heart being warmed too.
