Have you ever had one of those excruciatingly sorrowful times in your life when everything seemed dull and depressing? You know, times when you’re going through a breakup and end up losing your job as well? Or when you receive ten rejections from all the ten colleges that you applied to. That’s the thing with bad times—they always come in batches.
Different people have different ways of coping with times like these. Some would hit the gym and aggressively work out, trying to get the sad out of their system like they get the fat out. Others would go on a meditation mission, trying to import calmness from their inner souls.
