Watch out for Holiday meltdown
Here are some more ideas for coping with the stresses of winter and the holidays:
Be honest with what you are facing.
Recognize that you might be depressed.
You may be S.A.D. Seasonal Affective Disorder is real.
As the days are shorter and the weather turns gloomy get out into the sun as much as possible.
Get away, have some fun.
A quick trip to the coast might be just the thing. Maybe the mountains are your thing, just get away for a little while.
Turn off the cell phone and stay away from the email and breathe a sigh of relief.
Keep up with good nutrition and try some vitamins.
Do something pro-active.
A pedicure or massage might do the trick.
Don’t forget your exercise during the cold weather.
Get your sleep.
Eight hours is a good base. Too much is a sign of possible depression.
When all else fails seek therapeutic help.
A third party might have a better view of what might be happening to you.
