When you are feeling low, i think the best thing you can do is to talk to someone. Whether its a parent, sibling, friend, partner, therapist...... when you have things on your mind, it doesnt help to bottle them up and try to avoid the problem or think that just thinking happy thoughts will help. Of course, being positive and thinking positive thoughts help. But when you are feeling very low, sad or are having depressed thoughts. Then getting some feeedback, advice or just some words of consolation can be very helpful.
If you dont have anyone to talk to, then writing whether its on a blog, in a journal, writing to a friend or writing an email to someone, it can help to let it out and just get whatever is weighing you down out. Others prefer to draw or even write poetry to try to get whatever feelings and thoughts are in their head out.
Its important to be kind to yourself when you are struggling as well. Generally when i have alot going on or i am feeling very low and stressed or even have some negative thoughts creeping in. Then my hair, skin, nails and my room are just forgotten about. I dont have energy to take care of those things and i would much rather just lie in bed. But i can tell you, you wont feel better by not taking care of yourself or your room. So try to gather some energy, do some cleaning in your room and wash your hair, wash your face, scrub and clean and moisturise..... even if you're a guy! Take care of your body, because that is a first step in taking care of your insides as well.
