    I find staying active a big help. Especially things that help other people.

    Specifically for me, Qigong meditation "Crane, Turtle Deer" EVERY morning. 15 minutes. That's nothin. When things REALLY get bad, I do a Yoga Kriya...Maha Shakti Chalni Indra Mudra. 20 days, about 45 minutes every night at the same time.

    all ya can do is go all Rick Grimes Walking Dead, either consider yourself the walking (rolling) dead and tough it out or opt out. For me I'll fight to the death, depressed or happy or simply even keeled...any of those options is better then being dead.

    Fight on Brother!.

    Nothing brings me out of the doldrums like listening to the Rig Veda. I was lucky enough to spend time with a Brahmin acharya (in his native habitat, when I was much younger) who taught me (as best I could learn) to chant the first one, and to this day doing so has a profound effect on my state of mind.

    I really do believe happiness is something generated from within, if it's anything.

    I also really do believe that no one is happy all the time, nor should they be!!

    All is change; everything flows.

    What is this "positive," of which you speak? I've not been able to find it. My glass is empty.

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
