Feeling bummed out? NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

When I get bummed out, it can feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. But instead of letting those negative emotions consume me, and in time, I’ve learned to pray and reflect. It’s amazing how much clarity can come from taking a moment to sort out your thoughts and feelings and offering them up to God.

Sometimes, though, it seems that I need something more tangible maybe a good workout or an uplifting conversation with a friend. And let’s not forget about comfort food! But no matter what approach I take, one thing remains constant: this too shall pass. Life has its ups and downs, but as long as we keep our hope and faith in God at the forefront of our minds, we’ll always find our way back to peace and joy once again. Sometimes exercising, talking with a close friend, eating good food, and counting my blessings help. It is not hard to feel bummed out from time to time. Just realize that you are in a short season in life and that this, too, shall pass. Life can be stressful sometimes, but God will see us through as we put our hope and faith in Him. ~ Bill Greguska

Romans 12:12  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

What To Do When You Are Bummed Out?

We may snap at people, causing them to be a little ruder and a little less understanding of us. We may notice more adverse events and fewer festive events that happen to us. Here are some ideas that can be genuinely helpful:

  •  Talk To A Good Friend- Sometimes, talking with a good friend in person or on the phone can help you pull out of things by pointing you to Jesus and His teaching.
  •  Take a Prayer And Meditation Break- Both prayer and meditation can be great tools for helping people get into a different frame of mind. Even 5- or 10 minutes of prayer and meditation can give you a needed break from what’s stressing you.
  • Count Your Blessings- Gratitude is another excellent tool because it is hard to focus on how bad things are when focusing on how good things are! List at least ten or more things you’re grateful for. The next thing to do is to focus on 2 or 3 items. Doing this can give you an entirely new outlook and .turn a terrible. Day around!
  • A Little Workout- Sometimes, this is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Working out can relieve built-up stress and get your entire body and mind in the right frame of mind again.
