It's so simple, so elementary, you'd think we would all see how this simple gesture can make such a powerful difference. It's an innate response to stimuli - in other words, it's hardwired. When you smile, the muscle triggers in your face send their electrical impulses to the brain and a certain set of neuro-chemicals are released related to a lightened mood. So when you're down, no matter how hard it is, try to smile. Not the grimace-smile where you just bare your teeth, but get that smile all the way into your eyes. Even sitting here now I can feel a difference doing it. Your body recognizes this action and attempts to produce the requisite feelings. Of course it's not a cure-all, but it's a step.

I prefer to just hang out with friends, just having a good time and not really letting them know I am feeling 'depressed'. The last thing I want when I feel like is that is sympathy, because that just makes me feel worse.
Other things I love to do is just to watch a bunch of movies and listen to music. Comedy movies help, clearly because when you laugh you always feel better then when you're hiding under the covers for the scary scenes, haha But frankly, as long you are keeping yourself busy, and keep your mind focused on everything but the reason that made you feel down, that is what will get you over it pretty quick.
I still tend to think about the situation that got me down though, as that helps me to get over it as well. Just looking back and see what I can learn from it, and can do to perhaps avoid a similair situation again in the future.
