Holiday Blues Info


The holiday season is suppose to fill the heart with joy. Many place all their energy in creating a perfect and memorable holiday for the family. They spend hours planning meals, decorations, or buying the perfect gift for those on their gift list. Spending is out of control. People get frustrated at the number of things that they must accomplish for the holiday celebration. Instead of celebrating with the holiday colors red and green, they feel blue.

What is Holiday Blues
Holiday blues is an overwhelming depression that strikes some people during or after the holiday season. They imagine this is the season to be jolly, but they feel sad, lonely, frustrated, angry, or depressed. They imagine that this is odd behavior. This leads to more depression. Experts believe these emotions are based on thinking that everything should be perfection, or feeling alone, even remembering unhappy previous holidays brings about this blue feeling.

What is The Cure for Holiday Blues
First, realize that feeling sad is a normal emotion. Accept that feeling of depression, but don't let depression rule your life. Here are a few more suggestions on coping with holiday blues.

Treat Yourself - People experiencing depression focus on pleasing others too much. Instead they should treat themselves to something really special. Perhaps a special gift they've had their eye on all year. A day of luxury at the spa or simply relaxing around the house and listening to soothing music.

Take a Walk - Get outdoors and take a walk in the open air. Concentrate on the beauty of nature. Look at the sky, trees, birds. Take in a deep breath. Simply enjoy nature in all its glory.

Watch Funny Movies - Watch a few silly or funny movies with a holiday theme. Laughter might cure what ails you.

Listen to Holiday Music - Create a play-list of all your favorite holiday tunes and play them. Some find holiday music is very soothing and joyful.

Volunteer - Volunteering with special community groups during the holiday season and after might cure depression. Helping others in need is a way to give and receive joy.
