Things to do when feeling Blue!

Be it the Monday Blues, a gloomy rainy day or just a random bout of sadness that engulfs you, immersing yourself in the art can be of help sometimes. Today, we have a specially curated list for you to indulge in when those feelings become overpowering.

Movies to watch:

Hollywood :

1.Sing Street (British)

2. Submarine (British)

3. Fleabag (It's basically a 3-hour movie okay! Highly recommend. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius.)
