What To Do When It Seems As If Everything Is Going Wrong

I’m a pretty positive guy.  I always do my best to look on the bright side of things.  But because I’m human, I occasionally find myself down in the dumps.  Cathy, my wife, recently spent nine days in the hospital with pneumonia in both of her lungs.  She came home with oxygen and needs to keep seeing the doctor to make sure her lungs are getting to the point where she doesn’t need any help breathing.

It is painful for me to watch how difficult some simple things have become for Cathy.  We went to the Denver Art Museum the other day.  She was exhausted as we toured the exhibit.  Like most people I think it’s easier to deal with my health problems than it is to watch someone I love dearly deal with hers.

This morning I opened my email and found the following article…


Wow!  I needed that.  I already use a number of these techniques to help me get back on track when I’m feeling low.  Getting active, reading a novel, thinking of the good things in my life, pushing myself to accomplish more than I think I can, being enthusiastic about life, reconnecting with old friends and  laughter are all well used parts of my bag of tricks.

These seven work for me.  Which of the 52 ideas in the article work for you?  Please take a minute to share your thoughts with us in a comment.
