Need to counter depression or stress?
Put these remedies to the test.
Make them your daily goals;
they're good for body, mind, an soul.
Be kind, considerate, and compassionate,
another life you may illuminate.
Give someone a gift;
you both will benefit.
Hike through nature,
its reward will bring you favor.
Watch a sunrise or sunset.
It's an antidote for fret.
Your health will soar.
Converse with a stranger;
its benefits is a game-changer.
Take a deep breath of fresh air;
your worries will be easier to bear.
Listening to relaxing music
uplifts your spirit.
Connecting with a long lost friend,
is a satisfying way to expend.
Dancing in the rain to your favorite song;
brings joy and attracts the throngs.
Smiling is a positive stimulus.
And laughter is contagious.
Eating dark chocolate;
won't hurt your diet!
Put on a mindset of playing,
it evaporates complaining.
Do what you love today.
Tomorrow may be another D-Day.
Soaking yourself in sunlight;
Helps make you happy and bright.
