    Exercise is a great way improve your mental health and wellbeing in the long term, but also just to cheer you up when you're feeling a bit rubbish.

    Personally, I find sticking a right bopper on and having a dance is an easy way to lift my spirits. It gets my heart going, clears my head a bit, and it's great fun.

    What activities do you do to cheer yourself up?

    I get you with the music. The Lion King puts me in a good mood in the morning.

    I really should exercise more though.:emo:

    Typically I go and put on my favourite movie (it's LOTR, spoilers) or go find a book that captures my interest - and that can be anything.

    But sometimes it's exercise that I find myself heading to - usually the Just Dance games on the Switch, or archery.

    Going for a walk anywhere, whether that's to the shops or to the park really helps, especially if you're stuck in front of a computer monitor or a book all day, every day.

    I love wacking on some tunes and dancing like and idiot in my room. When I'm stressed, I try to go to the gym and just power walk it out or do some yoga in my room. Just getting out the house, even to walk to the shop I find helps clear my mind - it's always good to change your surroundings.

    Yeah, this! I'm making sure to take regular breaks to go on a wander for water. I'm drinking my water, taking more breaks from the computer, and moving a bit more so it's actually great and super easy!

    Mine is meditation I use a amazing app where you just have to do 10 mins a day (you can do more if you choose) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. It's like having the best power nap ever and always makes me feel happier and more chilled out

    Exercise wise - walk while listening to upbeat music
    Leisure - watch/read horror fiction, play video games, cook, go for a bath and burn some candles

    I normally go to the Gym.
    It probably isn't healthy, but I channel my stress into the weights.
    The gym is a good place to just think in between sets (provided it isn't full of hard-core grunters).

    Dancing around your room is definitely a great way to feel a bit better, as long as your neighbours aren't in seeing distance!

    For me, I've always loved going for walks when I feel down. It's a chance to get out of the house and whatever situation I'm in, listen to some of my favourite music, do some reflection or contemplation, and get a little bit of exercise without really putting in too much effort. I have a few favourite places - at home, I love walking through some of the fields behind my house which come to a little pond, but at university, I love walking up behind the train station where there's a hill that you can see the whole city from.

    I play guitar, do art and love to read, but these are all things I never feel interested in when I'm feeling low. It really sucks, but that's the frustrating nature of mental health difficulties. I can listen to music, watch Netflix or go and sit around my friends even if I don't feel like speaking though.

    Anything to get your mind off. Netflix, exercise, sleep, eat. I treat myself- e.g. said I'd order a pizza on friday meaning I had something to look forward to.

    Sounds insane, but I've just climbed Arthur's Seat (took a rather steep and nasty route up) clenching a small torch

    It was tough, but damn it felt good getting all the way up there...

    Anything that gets me out the flat. Going to the gym is a double win for cheering up and getting healthy
