Helpful Hints for Husbands no. 03 - What to do when you're darling is down.

Let's face it, women can have mood swings.  It's just part of who we are.  We'll be happy one minute, then the next we may be sobbing profusely.  Have no fear, men!  I'm here to share some tips to help you, help her when she's feeling blue.

If you see your lovely lady, looking not-so-lovely, 1) DO NOT ask if she wants to talk about it.  Why?  A) She may not want to talk about it.  B)  She'll likely say she doesn't want to talk about it.  C)  We don't think you'll listen, so we don't want to waste time (at this point in our fit).  We just want to feel sorry for ourselves.

Here's where you take action:  2)  Take her out on a walk, in the sunshine, and hold her hand.  This one's a double-whammy.  It's a scientific fact that just 15 minutes outdoors boosts your Vitamin D levels, which in turn boosts your mood.  AND, science has also proven positive effects from human touch.  Touch is a basic human need.  Holding hands shows her that you love her, and also stimulates a calming sense in your brain.  She'll feel relaxed and more connected to you.  Plus, a little fresh air never hurt anyone.

3)  Once she's relaxed a little, she'll be more likely to open up about what's going on.  Just listen because you love her.  Hold her if she needs it.  Just be on her team.  Remind her why you love her.  Talk her through the emotions.  I promise, it'll work...

but if not
