DP Daily Prompt: Singing the Blues

We all feel down from time to time. How do you combat the blues? What’s one tip you can share with others that always helps to lift your spirits?

Lately I’m feeling blue about the weather, which continues to bother me. Our winter started I’d say from late November. Almost every day it snows, if there is one good day there’ll be several stormy days. I fear about losing power,which means everything will be at a standstill, to me no power means, no internet,no warm food, no bath, no heat nothing. I picture myself counting the hours and wondering when power will be restored.

Right now we are having a windstorm why Nature is so angry I cannot tell. Yes we are responsible, we have too many vehicles on the road polluting our skies,earth and what have you.

We have garbage thrown everywhere polluting the town or city we live in. We fail to realize we are the reason our weather has changed. One positive thing that came out of this is we are learning to recycle, which could have started a while ago,but it’s a good beginning.

When I am sad I listen to my favorite songs, I read my favorite book,I talk to my kittens, who probably wonder , “What’s wrong with her, she is too nice today?” Then there is the piano I play for a few seconds and stop because the last time I played was a long time ago,I seem to have forgotten a lot of it. My best way of lifting my spirits is to get my cook books and read the delicious recipes in there, I start my preparation, soon enough I forget what bothered me in the first place.

My one tip for someone who is having a bad day,would be to advise them to open a dessert cook book and read the recipes,pretend they are going to create that wonderful cheesecake they think about from time to time and imagine eating a slice of that wonderful creation and say to themselves, “Who says I am not a good cook, look what I have created,it’s delicious!”

  1. What an interesting blues reliever… cooking! I have done baking as stress relief or change of pace before, but I have not done it to “get over the blues.” It might be effective!

    • You know I wrote it to see how many of you will agree,did you notice, I used cheesecake as the best
      problem solver, but does it when you’re concerned about all those calories,cholesterol and your health.
      as the saying goes ‘you take it with a grain of salt.’ Thank you Noah it’s a good way of practicing one’s writing skills!

  3. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. Times can sometimes feel overwhelming. This is the case with me now with regard to work. Too much work is not good.

    All good wishes,


    • I like work if it is my line of work sticking me with teaching and baby sitting is what I do not like.
      Yes sometimes if you are a good worker they give you more,what can you do.Thanks Robert for your comment.

  9. Music makes me feel better. Then I also like to do deep breathing exercises. Somehow my burden tends to melt away. The breath is connected to our mind, body and emotions. Try it sometime Ranu. I also hate harsh weather.
