I have a friend who was a little down today and I knew something wasn’t right when I sent her a text to see how she was doing. Her response was short and usually that’s not the case. I followed my gut and called her. She was surprised because I hardly get on my phone when I’m on the air. But she’s a really good friend and I knew she needed some encouragement.

If you have  loved one, friend, spouse, or co-worker that’s looking or feeling a little down, take some time out and be that special friend who will advise, listen and NOT judge!

Here are some more tips that might help:

  • Offer to take your friend out for a meal or a drink. Let her talk through her problems but not get too despondent. Listen and be sympathetic. Contact her on a regular basis by telephone, text or email to ask how she is. Tell her you are available any time she needs to talk. Invite her to dinner parties or events.
  • Compliment her on clothes and looks. Make her feel attractive and valued. For a woman, a shopping trip is often therapy. If she has money problems, a makeover at a cosmetics counter is free. For a man, new clothes are also a boost.
  • Work on getting her to see the problem as an opportunity for change. If it is job loss, perhaps she could retrain and change her career altogether. Practical advice is usually the best. While looking for a new position, she could always work for a volunteer organization and meet new people. This could present job opportunities, she could make new friends or even meet a new partner.
