Post-Holiday Blues

By January 8, 2013

Follow me on:

Much like post-wedding blues, the post-holiday blues have you feeling sad because the fun and excitement of the season - all the planning, all the celebrating - is over. Now, you're back at work or sitting in your house feeling as though there is little to nothing to which you can look forward. I hear ya. I feel your pain. I sometimes feel like this after a big event is behind me. To bust out of the blues, I usually start planning for something else. It might just be a nice dinner for my husband and me. Or it could be our next vacation. You could get a jump start on Valentine's Day. Or you could plan for your next anniversary. If you're superwoman, you could start planning next year's holiday now, too. Think gifts and parties and buy any of the now-on-super-sale holiday items that you'll need. The point is that you should wipe that frown off your face and start thinking about something positive. Besides, the holidays, just like any of these happenings, can only give you that happiness lift if they come infrequently. Otherwise, they'd just be part of your plain, old, boring, everyday routine.
