Bracing for Holiday Blues
The holidays are supposed to be a time for joy and celebration – full of wonderful foods, social occasions, religious and spiritual enrichment, or just plain fun. However, many people experience holiday blues. Are you one of them? One common complaint of those who suffer from this form of depression or period of sadness is their awareness of the expectations surrounding the season and their inability or lack of desire in meeting those expectations. Personal health, relationship issues, past losses, isolation, financial circumstances, and pure stress of the season can contribute to these holiday blues. The company employee assistance program or a counseling service in your community can see you temporarily to give you support during this time. Your insurance may help pay for such services. Ask about group counseling support. It's often the best kind because others who seek to conquer similar challenges can often generate powerful solutions with the mastermind effect found in the group work experience. If all else fails, don't suffer in silence. Instead, Google "holiday blues solutions" for a ton of ideas on beating the season's impact on your happiness or mood.
