Khloe Kardashian admitted earlier this week that 2015 has been her "worst year" ever, but in a Q&A video on her website on Friday, Nov. 27, she revealed a few other ways she's been able to cope with the bad times.

"Sometimes a little bit of ice cream helps," the reality star, 31, told a fan who'd asked her via Twitter, "What keeps you going when you get down in the dumps?"

"But you know what, music is a mood-changer," she added. "If I'm sad and I'm going to listen to something sad, a love song or whatever, I'm just gonna be sadder and cry. And sometimes you need a good cry but you cannot sit balled up in a corner and just 'Oh, woe is me.' Everyone is allowed to have their day, everyone's allowed to feel bad, but you've got to get over it. You've got to get up. Go to the gym, get some endorphins going in you."

Kardashian spent weeks by her estranged husband Lamar Odom's side in the hospital after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel in October. And in an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune earlier this month she admitted that going to the gym helped her deal with the stress of the sad situation.

"Just recently I’ve been in the hospital for almost three-and-a-half weeks straight, and finally everyone was saying, "Khloe, you have to get out of the hospital and do something that’s for you,'" the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said. "I had such anxiety going to the gym, but as soon as I left, I felt like, 'Oh my God, I’m okay. I'm human again.' I just felt so good. But for those three weeks, I didn't think about the gym because I was thinking about other things, and I don’t beat myself up about it."

In her Twitter Q&A the Strong Looks Better Naked author admitted that she works out "so much better" when she's sad or upset. "I have so much more energy and I'm angry or whatever."

And in a Thanksgiving post on her website on Thursday, Nov. 26, she also acknowledged that her family has helped her to get through the trying times. In addition to taking care of Odom, Kardashian was also sidelined with a staph infection that had her quarantined at home for several days last week.

"Without my crazy, chaotic, amazing family, I'm not sure how I could have gone through some of the things that I was tested with this year," she wrote. "Every night I thank the Lord for blessing me with the world's best support system and team of unconditional love."
