Sing, from time to time. It doesn't matter if you think you're the worst singer in the world - you can always find a private place to do it. For the few minutes while you're singing, you won't think about the other things going on in your life that are causing you pain.

And if you really can't bring yourself to do the singing yourself, listen to some music performed by someone else. Don't just have your iPod in while you're doing something else - really listen to what the lyrics are saying, and what the melody and harmonies are doing.
I can sing, but not a lot, given my ridiculous sounding voice. If anyone needs "Convoy" or "16 Tons", I'm your man.
I'm pretty sure the idea is that you're singing for yourself - for your own enjoyment, or just because you felt like it and don't care whether anyone hears. Also, there are plenty of songs which sound good sung in a bass range.
"Recently my 8 year-old cousin asked me, with a wicked twinkle in his eye, if I'd ever microwaved a banana. I'm terrified to try, but I'm sure whatever happens—splattering, abrupt, radioactive—sounds exactly like an Annie Clark guitar solo."
