Both very good ideas!

I’m just kind of surprised more people didn’t have something to add. Movies can help me get out of my way of thought. Especially at the theater. I can lose myself for a few hours.

Good for you! If part of your counseling includes meditation, so much the better. I've found that to be very helpful when I was going through my own darkest days. And a good component of that is setting ... some place where you feel secure, and feel that nature is going on around you in its own way.

Sometimes it was a park bench in a more secluded part of a park, sometimes it was a rock on a river bank that I had to walk for a half a mile to reach. In both of those cases, the important thing was to try to tune out my own anxieties and tune in to this glorious mechanism that is nature, busy pursuing its own goals and taking no notice of me. It sounds strange, but my feeling insignificant somehow helped me that my own troubles were equally insignificant in the great scheme of things.

I've also taken solace in church, and have been part of a Christian outreach program for some decades now. But I'm careful about recommending a religious answer because it means so many different things to different people, and I've become convinced that a good path for one person may be a disastrous path for another. Rather, I'd tell you not to seek out a particular set of religious beliefs, but let them find you.
