  10. Call a friend/family/loved one/supportive person
  11. Do a work out
  12. Go for a jog/run
  13. Read a graphic novel/comic

  1. It’s a great list, especially the items or tips involving looking at books or reading; something I should do more of. Also it’s great to have as something for you to come back to later on- when in need. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
