It’s snowing in Virginia beach, well kinda snow clumps and rain. It’s adding to my overall depression, but I kinda like it. I’m at a point where feeling low is a comfort zone. Happiness is odd and fleeting. But as people suggest this too shall pass, as it usually does. When I feel like this I look for ways to get out of the “hole”.
Music- has always been a good escape. Music has a direct root to my brain and always stirs an immediate response in my feelings.
Smell-one of our oldest senses. Smell brings back memories both good and bad, but travels through our smell receptors to our amygdala and hippocampus which store our memories and emotions. I can diffuse a number of oils depending on how I want to feel.
There are always ups and downs and if just for a short time I can get a reprieve those are the 2 things I go to first. It works for me.
