Post Holiday Malaise

For some people, the holidays are not the most wonderful time of the year: between family and peer expectations, financial woes, scheduling frenzies, reminders of loss or trauma, it can feel hard and lonely.

For others, including myself, holidays bring a mix of emotion: joy and loss, expectation vs reality, family missed and remembered… the bittersweet feelings that accompany leaving old memories behind while creating new traditions.

When the holidays are finally over and the buildup finally washes over to reality: it is easy to fall into a slump of malaise and general apathy.

So take care of yourself today and surround yourself with people who you know love you and you can trust.
