So many people seem depressed today, and many of these same people admit they find the news depressing. The remedy? It wouldn't hurt to try this: Turn off the TV news; don't watch it for at least one day; and go out among people! Real people! You'll find yourself laughing a little, maybe for the first time in weeks.
R.A.T.s (Rose About Town) does this on a regular basis. In return, I have decided, you have to pass your OWN smile and sense of humor around too. It magnifies and spreads the remedy.
