When I have a rough day all I want to do is eat sushi for dinner (well, actually I want this on good days) too) and then to spend a couple of hours in my arm chair with a really good, really distracting book in hand and one or two of my animals cuddled on my lap.
Give me my dog to cuddle and a Jane Austen adaptation, or Hot Fuzz, or an Agatha Christie audiobook. Basically, I'm soothed by British actors.
When I have it bad, I sit down at my laptop with a bag of Starbursts and make sure my characters have it
When I've had a rough day, I pan-fry myself some shrimp gyoza and watch reruns of Project Runway.
I usually open spotify, put on a favorite playlist or classical composer's work, and head into the kitchen. Cooking and baking soothes me. I tend to get into a rhythm of measuring and mixing and, when all is said and done, there's an edible reward at the end. Completing a short-term project like that, with an outcome I can see and appreciate, boosts my mood again.
When I have a rough day, I usually like to curl up on the couch, put on one of my FRIENDS DVDs, and eat something delicious - like Thai food.
When I've had a rough day, I lace up my running shoes and literally sprint away from my problems. And when that doesn't work, ice cream.
