This may seem like “old news” to many, but if we all got it, there’d be no need to say it again. So, for whatever it’s worth, below are belated but well-intended suggestions for getting it together mentally and physically for 2011.
After the holidays are over, people often start to notice the “New-Year blues.” Also known as “post-holiday” or “I can’t believe it’s still so cold and snowy and when will it ever be warm again?”-blues. I think this is true both for people who struggle with mood issues in general and also for those who normally feel relatively emotionally balanced. The end of holiday festivities (or tensions brought to light during them), coupled with shorter days, all of those post-holiday credit card bills, and the dirty-snow stains splashed across the good slacks despite wearing the high boots can make it feel very , very difficult to stave off the fatigue and inertia that often set in this time of year.
For some, these recommendations will sound obvious, but I think they’re worth stating nonetheless.
Give the above a try, and this winter should feel more manageable than usual. And again, nothing shocking here: When you feel more emotionally balanced, everything thing else will seem better too.
