Spend time with People and stay Healthy?

When in a funk, many people won’t take that invite for coffee or dinner out – they find comfort in being alone. 

However, spending time with (good) people when we are in these funky moods could be the best medicine.  Studies have actually shown that the busier you are; the less likely you’ll be to develop serious diseases.

Do you like spending time alone when in a funk or do you surround yourself with good peeps?

  1. I definitely charge by being alone but, oddly enough I also love social stuff, hosting parties, going out to coffee. The personalities tests say that I'm like 50/50 for introvert extrovert so perhaps that is why! lol Nothing like a good girl's night to boost the spirits though!! How have you been TV? MErry Christmas season! :)

  2. I believe it depends...a little bit of both. But laughter is contagious so it definitely does help to be around some positive people!

  3. That picture of KLV is adorable! I always feel better when I am around people who are my good friends and make me laugh. It can be easy to want to be alone so as not to feel like we look in a funk, but going out can change how we feel and our over all appearance. A smile can go a long way. Have a great day my friend!

  4. I love being around the people I love when in a funk! I also find running to be a SUPER great remedy to a grumpy mood!

  5. I'm good at staying busy! I get to feeling like I've had too much of people and then I re-charge with alone time. I see what you mean though - about withdrawing - I don't really do that.

  6. I would say I'm a combination of both! Sometimes I'm in a funk because I know I need the alone time, and other times, I know I need to be around people who make me happy and that makes it better/easier to get out of the funk!

  7. I think for me, it's a balance of both. Each friend we have brings something different to us and we offer something different to them. Depending on my funk there are only certain people I want to be around. Just this past week, I had a situation, needed a friend and someone I hadn't seen in a year showed up at my desk and we had lunch that same day. She was just who/what I needed that day. Wonderful it sometimes works that way.
