It really all depends on the degree of how upset I am. If it’s what I call a terminal day, though I do usually call one of my friends like Ryan, the first thing I think of is like chicken wings or a sundae. It’s the fat girl side of me – that’s just what I crave.
However, in terms of non-food related things I turn to, if I’m having an awful day and I just want to try to feel better, these are things I try to do to relax and enjoy the rest of my day:
Have a bubble bath, while listening to Josh Groban (or lately it’s been Florence and the Machine) and drinking tea.
Watch something I love – which may sound stupid but sometimes I need something I love and nostalgic to make me feel better. Typically I’ll watch one of my Friends DVDs. I don’t always sit and intently watch either, it’s usually on just to comfort me. I may play some Sudoku while I watch, or write in my journal.
Cuddle my cat and take a nap.
Play a video game – it distracts me.
Go for a long walk and work off my frustration.
But above all else, what I turn to (besides people) to make me feel better: Coffee. It’s my ultimate comfort.
