Other, maybe helpful, suggestions: Aside from reigniting a pursuit for a dream job (never too late!) she could pick up a hobby with something she's always wanted to try and just start doing it. She can join a club or organization with a common interest or goal and participate in that. Maybe create something and let your inner artist out! Also, Journaling is a great way to clarify your perspective on your life and you might be able to list out different things you can try and find something you're passionate about. Trying a new physical exercise like yoga, spinning, rock climbing, or zumba can be a fun way to stimulate your brain to think of ideas while you can meet new people and ramp up your endorphins to feel happier!
Oh yes, whenever I'm feeling down, washing dishes and vacuuming always puts a big smile on my face! What great advice!
Hey, I feel a sense of personal accomplishment when my house is in order. Probably not what the wife might want to hear but I know a lot of guys that are problem solvers, my BF included. Some days I just want to vent about my crummy day at work and he'll "advise" me what I should have done differently.
Same for me #23. There have been a lot of times where my problem solving husband wants to help where I just want to vent and not get any advice. And I've been on his case not to do that all the time even though guys are natural problem solvers. And for this, I have found putting my home in order when things are out of place makes me feel accomplished especially when I do a two day overhaul on the house once a month. I think OP'S husband wants to problem solve and just threw something out there to see if it would work.
