I'm confused on the thread title.. like stims that I do when I'm down, or things that I like to do to feel better when I feel down?

If you mean the second one, Honestly? I like to just sit outside and just look out over my garden. The fireflies are starting to come out and lately I've been sitting outside in the evening and watching them dance while listening to my wind chimes.
Sometimes I play video games, but that's normally when I'm feeling frustrated or angry. If I feel sad I can't really bring myself to play.


OK, you wanna know the truth? I'll tell you the truth. My childhood blanket. The sheer comfort embedded in that thing has the potential to bring me down from the most stressful of scenarios. I just lay on my bed or sit in my chair and run my fingers over it like I have since the moment I got it. Very embarrassing, since I live in housing with other people my friends have all seen me fiddling with it a couple of times, but I guess it's preferable to pretending everything is OK and then feeling worse. Everyone has a coping mechanism.

My experience differs from >>13676 . I can't play video games when I'm angry (although I'm not angry often) but I can play them when I'm upset. When things are just plain bad, a good JRPG puts me in a place where my issues seem smaller for just a little while.

thank both of you for your replies friends. i meant comforting stuff to do, not drugs,, those are evil.. i dont really get angry anymore, just so distraught upset and sad when those i love hurt me.. my nr 1 comfort is watching cartoons like the above (the owl house) or just cuddle with my shark plush.


Spoiler for uncomfy meta analysis

"Drugs" is a pretty broad category that people have a lot of opinions on, so declaring them "evil" is a bit pretentious. But I would agree that most people use them for either "enjoyment" or "insight" and in the particular case of enjoyment, they usually just make things worse, destabilizing ones reward system. However, I don't think people turn to drugs for enjoyment or coping unless other things are going wrong for them, so I'd be more ok saying those other things going wrong is evil then drugs themselves.

"Insight" is a bit more complicated. I think there is real meditative insight to be gained with certain drugs under certain conditions, but I think most insight drugs are actually just stimulating parts of the brain that express the feeling of having important insight, with no important insight required. In this way simply using meditation for insight is cheaper, safer, and more effective.

And for my answer to OP, when I'm feeling down what I mostly do is stay down. Being 'down' to me is the state of focusing on negative things "Ahh these are things I hate about myself", "Oh this is something I did wrong", "eek I'm expecting the world to hurt me in this way". And those are important things to think about and it hurts to think about them. I think it's healthy to approach them with an attitude of overcoming problems like "ok I did that wrong, how can I do better in the future" or "Ok, that's something that could go wrong, how likely is it and how should I prevent it"… but I don't really do that to be honest. I just brood and feel upset and consider the specifics of the things I don't like. There's a part of me that feels like, theres a way the world should be inside my mind, and a way the world actually is, and if I can't change the world I don't want to change my mind. I'd rather just be angry and sad. Crying sometimes feels like the right thing to do.

But there are things I do that feel pretty comfy. Sitting outside with a cup of tea and a book. Warm food like soup. Lighting incense to make my room smell nice. Having a cold shower before going to bed so that the warmth of my bed feels better. Watching slice of life anime or reading any of hitoshi ashinano's or tsukumizu's manga. These things feel pretty comforting to me.


I like cleaning and organizing my room. Its really relaxing for me. Also, listening to comfy music

rewatching favorite anime
eating something tasty
going for a walk or a drive with the windows down
talking with my friends
playing games I've very familiar with


Mostly just listening to melancholic music, or do something that will improve my personal environment when I can't have fun anyway. Like going through some computer folders and tossing what wasnt as interesting as I felt when I fetched it down, or clean a part of my physical space.

One of my best recipes is to take a late night walk with the album "Harold Budd - Avalon Sutra" in your headphones.


Oh and also, this is something I only do when I already am comfy to increase comfy levels further, but someone else may find it usable to de-uncomf:
Go on safebooru and search for some tag of comfy attribute, like for example, "blanket", "teacup", or whatever else I associate with good pleasant times.


Sometimes I clean shit, other times I just doze off to some ambient music or vent in my diary.txt


Juno? >;3 nyaa is that you, be honest?

im very sorry for my instability


Tea and reading instantly come to mind.
Sushichan I suppose. When things are rough, and they normally are, it's a calming atmosphere here.
Sometimes just opening anime in MPV and half-watching it while I program does a lot for me.
I like to meditate for a few minutes sometimes and then use the focus I get out of it to daydream about living in a cabin in the snow. I started doing this a couple of years ago for some reason, building up a little peaceful area in my mind has been nice.

How could I forget soup, there's nothing more comforting in the world than hot lentil soup on a cold day to me

Infectiously comfy cat
