    Well as the title says, i was wondering what you guys do when your upset, feel down or whatever. i always try to get on with my day, try forget about certain things, try and hide them, no matter how hard i try, they always get me in the end. What do you do? any certain things you like to do, that cheer you up and make you forget?

    I look at my lil baby girl. Her smile kicks the crap out of 90% of what ails me.

    I just deal with it. If I get very mad I usually hit inanimate objects that are unlikely to damage me, and that I am unlikely to damage. Beating the shit out of my matress is what I usually end up doing...

    I usually try to get my mind on other things. Usually when I'm upset it's over something I have little or no control over, so I tell myself not to get too upset over something I have no control over.

    Movies, games, reading, chatting with friends, whatever keeps your mind moving is a healthy form of escapism.

    Alcohol and other escapism tools only defer the emotion, so I don't recommend those types of escapism while depressed or angry.

    Keep your chin up. :)

    depends for me. Sometimes, if I can hold myself together until I get home, I'll have a glass of bourbon and watch a funny show or movie. If I'm at work, Ill go to a funny website or something. Maybe play some Doom...killing things helps me relax. Going on rampages in GTAIV helped a bunch of times... good old rocket launcher never fails :D

    Well i have many options ....

    1) I ride my motorcycle , and drive until to find sea .
    Some how, the look of the sea , washes out my inner sad feelings.

    2) Take the dog out , carrying for some one else , helps to forget your own troubles.

    3) Gaming , with a good game , that player skills pay out , if you are good , this will boost your self esteem .

    4) Phone to a friend , but not just any one , the one that you really trust, a coffee and a bit of chat , helps out.

    I usually play a game I have beaten before so that I know it won't stress me out. I seem to play Evil Genius the most for the purpose of letting off steam (nothing like beating on "the agents of justice" :laugh:).

    Work out and run at least a mile. Runners high provides temporary relief. 50 push-ups as fast as I can if it's the middle of the day and I can't get away from my work, which also helps me wake up if I'm feeling drowsy after sitting in front of the computer screen for hours studying.

    Also #4 on kirakost's list.

    feel sorry for myself until it passes.

    if you have a animal like a dog pet him and stuff. it's proven to help. it relaxes the brain and helps when you feel down.

    I workout. Run, do some push ups, get on the total gym, etc. I don't like nor suggest physically not doing anything. I think exercising is the best way to relieve stress and change your state of mind so your not focusing on a certain thing. That only leads to self inflicted depression.
    Forgot to add, I listen to Tool when I'm down/sad as well, my favorite band.

    Listen to depressing music (no, really).

    And like a lot of others, getting up and doing something physical usually helps. Exercise, yard work, etc.

    Try to not think about hardware!! But it will be hard because if u remeber not to think about it, u are remembering the word "HARDWARE".

    Porn gets the second choice. :D

    I usually just get into a heavy action game and tear it up. I can be a shopaholic though and buy something for my rig, but I rarely do that anymore.
