Whenever I feel down-in-the dumps and depressed, one of my strategies for coping is by reading the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series. Many of the stories are about people who were hopeless but then turned their life around by following their heart. There are also many stories about spreading love. Of course there’s also the heartfelt section on loss that really makes you appreciate the people around you. Most of the stories are true stories, or poems on the lessons learned from life. If you’re feeling down-in-the dumps or hopeless, this is a series I would recommend.


What do you do when you feel hopeless? What lifts your spirit?
