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.

A man in search of an opportunity to be offended often finds one.  There is no "fine line".  "Heh" is not an internet term.  Face-to-face communication is not required.  You're just oversensitive.

Good lord Walter. I'd you think you can be on a men's site and not deal with innuendo, you need to come back to the real world.

I'm staying in a shelter right now with a bunch of guys who on average are probably a bit "tougher" than most men here.  Banter all the time.  We also interface, hourly.

Do I want to know???

Walter,

So be it, taken as such...

Well Jack, learn something every day.   Heh.

I agree very much with this, and also about praying/giving thanks for what you do have in your life.  It's always good to simplify and to do that you have to guard what you let into your heart and mind.  Looking at too much of anything will naturally take up a lot of your mind, focus and energy.  To paraphrase scripture; "Whatever is pure and good is what you need to focus on."  Prayer, staying active and simplifying works for me.

I agree with you David.  Some times the best thing to do is get up and walk it off or work it out.  A dear friend once told me she had never been depressed. If she felt herself getting down or depressed she would get out and walk and think about why she felt that way along with reminding herlsef all of the blessings she had in her life.  Often we focus on what we don't have or what is not going right in our lives and we forget what is going right for us.  Praying is just a simple conversation between you and God. Talk to God just like you would talk to your best friend or you father.  Nothing you say will shock him or be wrong. If you are upset, angry, sad then just tell God that. Ask him to help you understand it.

I shave. Sounds crazy, but a quality shave with straight razor, brush, and a good soap is a way to reflect upon your troubles while symbolically (and literally) cleaning yourself up. When I got fired for the first time in my life (This last New Years Eve, no less. A shitty end to a shitty year), the first thing I did was go home and shave. Then carpet-bombed other employers with job applications. I got a callback and job interview the next day.

Thanks your story cheered me up. I think it is time to learn real shaving then, i allwayse use the electric one. On the other hand there is not a real beard growing yet.

Great idea. 

Not sure if manly, but I love to draw when upset.

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
