The Blues is a natural thing in our lives. Everyone feels them. That long face, tired eyes and a general morose expression is all to familiarize with us and when a friend or colleague feels the blues.... a part of us can strongly relate to their predicament.

When we feel them, people try their best to make us feel better, and when our friends or better half feel them, it is up to us to make them feel better about themselves. Here are ways to make someone feeling the blues, feel better.

1. Talk to them

It is important to give them a listening ear, just sit quietly and listen to them talk through whatever is upsetting them. A problem shared is a problem half solved. But remember, try as much as possible not to solve their problem.

2. Buy Them a Gift
