It's even stronger when you're creating the media yourself. So, you can imagine the impact writing the books I'm currently writing is having on me. One of them is a tragedy, and the other combines forbidden love with the villian's introduction. Needless to say, it's not good. I like writing these books, but I know it's taking an emotional toll. I should have written a happy book instead to balance out Legion.
So what does a person do to bring some balance to life? I can tell you now, it's not at your job (unless you're really lucky).
Normally I would recommend a few different things, most of which I myself have NOT been doing.
1. Get some sun. Sun makes people happy. They have lights for just this sort of thing.
2. Exercise - it releases endorphins, thus making you happy.
3. Meditate - this helps relieve stress and gets you back to center.
4. Surround yourself with funny/happy people/media. A good laugh really is the best medicine.
As you may know, I haven't been very good at doing any of these but the last since I took my current job. That said, I have used all these techniques to raise my spirits while writing something sad or going through a trying period of life.
So, do yourself a favor - cheer yourself up. :-)
