I hate it when that melancholic feeling percolates. Something's been bothering me for the past few days, even weeks and, I daresay, been losing sleep over it. Tossing and turning in bed, giving shade of rings under my eyes are not good signs. I don't know what it is exactly, or maybe I do but my mind's blank. It refuses to shed light. I can't identify and deal with it, can I, when I don't even know what's bugging me. Loneliness seemed to elude my soul tonight shadowed by a heavy fog of rhetoric, hidden behind the piercing silence of the night. I popped a pill, well, half a pill to help me sleep a little better. Goodnight [Good morning, rather].

Exercise and sunlight, dear PrincEss.
The best antidote and preventative treatment for melancholia is regular daily sessions of exercise and getting sunshine on your skin.

Sunshine on your skin produces Vitamin D, a powerful yet oft lacking nutrient that, among other things, is a mood stabliser and enhancer.

Treat yourself to a 45 minute to 1 hour daily walk in the sunshine wearing short sleeves. I promise you'll notice the difference very quickly indeed.

(And a distilled fish oil supplement will help longer term, too.)

Hello primrose,

So when it's simply not your day and things get a little out of hand, as they invariably do from time to time. You have to take care. I haven't got a chance to meet you since i knew you from Patrick's blog. Am pretty sure we'll meet someday!

Maybe we should start a melancholy club. I know an hour at the gym will do me good but these tired old bones just refuse to get out of the house. How??

OK - Let me offer an incentive.
Available to both PrincEss PrimrosE and to Bkworm:

I hereby offer 1,000 points to each of you if *both* of you go to a gym and do a solid 60 minutes of aerobic (huffing, puffing) exercise before the close of business on Friday of this week.

To clarify that offer, if one of you accepts the challenge and the other one doesn't, *neither* of you win 1,000 points.

Are either of you going to disappoint, let down and deprive the other? Or will both of you be winners by the end of this week?

Exercise, FFL? Can it be any other way? Like food-binging or shopping therapy? I don't even do 5-minute workouts, leave alone 60-minute exercises...Err, nehmind. 1000 points ain't important to me. Heh, heh!

Hi MamaBok, I'm fine and dandy again. Hmm, maybe it was PMS kicking in???

Hey Char, take care I will. We'll meet soon...

*giggle* Yeah bkworm, sounds like a good idea, melancholy club. What activities will there be? Bead-making? Cookie-baking? Belly dancing? They are all good in defeating that mood.

Hi Patrick, yes fine and dandy now. Amy? Sigh. She's known to be a procrastinator *snigger* In any case, I invited her to be a guest blogger at the wrong time. She is on a flirty assignment up north. *winks*

FFL - Hmmm, since Primrose is not bothered about that 1000 points, no use me breaking my back over an hour at the gym, right?

Primrose - Great idea :D. Let's get cracking!
