When you feel down and out, please do the following:
1. Take a deep breath, and then exhale slowly while you count up to 10. Repeat this 10 times.
2. Think of all the good things you have, which you take for granted – the fact that you get good healthcare for free, good food, unpolluted air, the chance to look forward to another day (hey, think of folks in other parts of the world who do not have any of these)
3. Now, make yourself a cup of coffee, and sit down in a place where you can write stuff. Write down in a paragraph about whatever is bugging you.
4. Now get back to what you need to do to get on with life
Try doing this. This will get you out of the woods. Trust me.
