What is your manly way to cheer up when you are sad?

Title says it all, i hope there is actually something :) And it doesn't have to be manly in the way that you wrestle with some bears, any ways counts. I don't even know why i put that there, just sounds better i suppose.

Get off the Internet for one. Don't take that as an insult, I honestly believe that the internet is a drain on your mental health when you're already depressed. Then go do something that is productive to you. Go read a book, go for a run or to the gym, go chop some wood, anything, as long as it takes a little work and you can say you got something done. Being productive reaffirms your worth as a man, moping around in front of a screen degrades it.

Thanks, it sounds right what you are saying. I should catch some sleep. The internet is probably the biggest problem in my life.

Why do you think the internet is a drain on mental health? Any sources? I'm not trying to be an ass or anything because I think you could be right.  

It's a huge time vacuum for one. And spending hours on end doing anything isn't good for you, especially when it involves you sitting alone in front of a screen. Call it personal experience.

I don't have a source either but now that i think about it i can totally second Davids opinion.

Yeah, I'd like to see sources myself.  I couldn't do my job without the internet, and work with it with no ill effects.

I'm not arguing against Internet use, especially work use. I'm saying that excessive personal use doesn't help when you're dealing with mild depression

The internet is full of polarized arguments.  That's why I avoid it when I'm down.  It just makes it worse. 

No, its not.  That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.  You're an asshole.

Heh.

What manners, Jack!  Pejorative-you don't even know the fellow...

Most AOM members are quick enough to catch the joke.  One would hope.

 

JB

Yeah, as long as the joke's not on you.
