Another Christmas has come and gone. As unwrapped presents are gathered up and the last of the leftovers are enjoyed, many people find themselves in a post-holiday funk. It’s completely normal to feel a little let-down after a holiday with so much hype and energy swirling around it. There are varying degrees of severity to these sad feelings and we don’t wanna minimize anyone who is very seriously hurting.
For those who are struggling to keep their chin up, we wanted to suggest a few ways to help you feel like yourself again.
1. Keep Hangin’ Out! – There’s always a temptation to isolate when you’re feelin’ blue, but many experts say it’s a great idea to continue meeting up with friends and family especially when you feel sad or lonely.
2. Think Positive! – Our minds are often the biggest contributor to how we feel. Once you begin thinkin’ about the New Year as filled with possibility and enjoyment, it will become easier for you to let go of the holiday excitement and begin moving forward.
3. Move to Texas! – If you’re living in a place where the climate is harsh and the roads are made of ice, then pack up yer belongins’ and head out West, partner! OK so, maybe this isn’t actually a scientific recommendation that’s been studied and all that. We just know that the open plains, friendly smiles, bustling cities, and milder weather of the Lone Star State are bound to put a spring in your step. 😉
Whatever you may be feeling after the Christmas rush, we hope you make the most of what’s been given to you and enjoy every day to the fullest!
But also, we hope you move to Texas. 🙂
