Swinging singles...

I LOVE swing sets! It's one of the great joys of life, and I too recommend it. You have to be careful, because grownups around kids playgrounds can get bad reps, but it's great for mind and soul. If you can find a good swing set, go for it.

I go up to a local park with my friend's son and their dog. I swing while he plays with the dog. Then we play together on the merry go round or race to see who can get higher on the swings. It's the best therapy I know of.

Also, swimming helps me. In fact, most exercise helps me. The energy that goes into the twisted thinking of depression and the anxiety get transferred into physical release.

I also like sad movies, old black and white tear jerkers, like Dark Victory (ugh) or Anne of the Thousand Days, or Nine Days a Queen. A movie that gives you permission to cry it out over someone else can be cathartic.

Thanks for reminding me of my fave therapy!
