How To : Take Care Of A Sad Person

1) Turn them into a taco

Cover that person in a blanket and make a burrito/ taco  of that person. It is psychologically proved that warmth spreads happiness. Or give them a bear hug. Hold that person tight (only if it’s appropriate). Hugs heal the most. Trust me. They. Do.

2) Food heals

Eat chocolate. Chocolates heal broken hearts more than anything. It’s a recipe I’ve tried. Unless you’re allergic. Then give melted ice cream a try. Works just as well. There’s a thing known as emotional eating. Although it’s unhealthy it is proved to improve mental state. 

3) Smile all the way

Watch funny videos or do nothing to get that person to smile. Even a forced smile works just right as it lets out hormones that give you a sense of happiness (eh I’m a bio student. Did I creep you out? Ha I’m a big reader of facts on Pinterest. If you can’t make them smile, you smile. Smiling is contagious. Act stupid or funny. Just force out a smile. There’s also tickling.

4) Get out

Get some fresh air. Don’t be cooped up in the house. Take that person out. Breathe the fresh air. Maybe put your leg in a pile of poop and see your friend fall down laughing. Go catch the new blockbuster. Do a haul. Walk around. 

5)  Divert 

Divert that persons mind. Don’t let that person think about the reason they became sad, or go near that person or object. Fill their minds with other thoughts. Out of sight out of mind. 

6) Look at the greener side

Think about the situation that could’ve gone worse. Things that could go way more down. Now look at what has happened and be grateful the worse haven’t happened. (Inspired: Read Pollyanna)

7) Intensity

Think of the bad situation that had taken place. Is this really going to matter in the next one year? In the next five years? If it’s something embarrassing, you’ll probably laugh at yourself on the recollection of that memory.

8) Let it all out

Do they feel like crying or giving out curses? Let it all out. Every darn bit. It’s better to remove all of it out then keep it bottled inside and then wait for the volcano to explode.

9) Time 

Even if all your efforts are in vain. Sometimes just let them be. Time heals. Sometimes no matter how hard you try, somethings take time to heal, just like a broken bone, a broken smile takes time.

  3. I love this because there are people in the world that instantly panic when they encounter an emotion that is foreign to them such as sadness. This gives all of them a brilliant guide to follow πŸ™‚
