Post-holiday blues

While the holidays may be exciting for many people, it can also be a period of loneliness and sadness for others. Throughout this time, emotions are heightened.

Sometimes emotions are hard to regulate. It’s common after all the hoopla for people to experience a letdown or what some call the ‘post-holiday blues.’ Usually not long-lasting, most people swing back to normal after a short while.

However, if you don’t and your feelings seem to worsen, visit your family doctor or nurse practitioner. There are supports for you!
