Good Ol' Post-Holiday Blues!

Are you having some post-holiday blues? If yes, you are definitely not alone. After so much fun with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, it is quite common to feel lonely and a bit depressed, specially in areas where winter is harsh in January. 
Well, there is a lot to look forward to in 2012. Here are a few tips from GalTime to help you get back on track:

1.) Schedule events or outings to look forward to. Whether you enjoy going out with friends or engaging in your favorite hobby, pre-planning enjoyable events will give you something to get excited about.
2.) Seek support from your friends. Now is not the time for isolation. Call a trusted friend or family member. Just hearing their voice will help refocus you on all the wonderful people you have in your life.
3.) Get out of the house. Remember all those things you wanted to do but couldn't because you had too much going on…now is the time to go for it!
4.) Throw yourself into the next holiday (or sport, try basketball or hockey.)
5.) Remember, this too will pass. Before you know it the holidays will be upon you again. Live life in the present, don't pine away waiting for the time to pass, you may miss something you will regret later!
