I'm feeling down
I feel down, sometimes I know why, sometimes I don't. This feeling is like a weight on top of me.
In the Moment
Feeling down in the dumps can sometimes stem from a lack of change in routine.
Whatever you’re doing right now, think about how you can change it in order to renew your motivation and excitement for other aspects of your life.
Remember This When You’re Sad
According to Maggy van Eijk, the best place to cry in public is: the top deck of a bus, right at the front. Maggy also claims eating super salty liquorice or swimming in an icy cold pond are things that make you feel alive, but aren’t bad for you. Depends how salty the liquorice is really, but you get the idea.
Remember this when you’re sad is a raw, unfiltered memoir/care manual, using humour to tackle trauma and deliver a better state of mental wellbeing.

My Dad Wrote a Porno Podcast
Hosted by Jamie Morton, James Cooper, and Alice Levine, My Dad Wrote a Porno is a podcast designed to make you laugh.
Each episode involves Jamie Morton reading a chapter of an amateur erotic novel, called Belinda Blinked, written by his dad under the pen name Rocky Flintstone – surely every child’s worst nightmare.
My Dad Wrote a Porno has received pretty much universal acclaim, so if you feel like crying with laughter instead of sadness, then give it a listen.
‘Boop My Nose’ on Instagram
Amongst the thousands of animal-themed Instagram accounts out there, one stands unrivalled. It’s called Boop My Nose, and it’s honestly everything you could ever need.
A whole account of dog noses. Literally so many pictures of happy doggo noses.
Go and drown in them instead of sadness.
Seek Support From Those Who Make You Feel Safe
At Nalla, we all agree that it’s important to look for support from people who make you feel safe and cared for.
The person you talk to doesn’t have to be able to fix you, but they need to be a good listener—someone who’ll listen attentively and compassionately without being distracted or judging you.
Reach out to someone close to you, and be honest with them about your feelings. This can be hard to do, but even saying you need help out loud can be half the battle. Take it a step at a time, but just remember that you don’t have to face this challenge alone.
