For when you need to cry it out
A very good way to shake yourself out of a blue mood is to immerse yourself in the blues of others. The ocean of emotions in Jojo Moyes' novel, Me Before You about a young woman who falls in love with the handsome, rich, angry young man she cares for—who has been paralyzed in a motorcycle accident—will buffet you with waves of cleansing, renewing tears. It's all right to be sad, the novel shows you: Strong emotions let us feel our common humanity.
