4 Ways to Boost Post Holiday Mental Health

By Genevieve Cunningham

The holidays are over and the excitement is winding down. While there is a certain amount of stress relief associated with the end of the holidays, there is also a sense of the blues. It's a tough time of year for many people. But how can we make it through with our mental health intact? As it turns out, it's possible to make it through the post holiday blues mostly unscathed. If you would like to keep your mental health in good shape through this toughest time of year, take a look at these effective tips that you can incorporate today.

Find a New Goal

Now is a great time to make a brand new goal for yourself. It might be weight loss, a promotion, or another personal goal. The sky is the limit! This gives us purpose for the new year, which can help keep us moving forward instead of worrying about things in the past.

Stay Busy

Since the holidays are so busy, the post holiday season can feel dull in comparison. Instead of allowing this to get you down, find some ways to stay busy. Get busy at work, with fitness, or with some personal goals. The busier you keep yourself, the more fulfilled you will feel, and the easier it is to make it through the blues.

Look Forward to Something

Much of the excitement of the holiday season is that there is so much to look forward to. There's something to get excited about. Once the holidays are gone, it seems as if there is nothing to hope for. Fight this feeling by creating something to look forward to. Plan a trip, get excited about spring, or create a project. This gives you that sense of excitement that can keep you moving and feeling motivated.

Get Involved

Now is also a great time to get involved. Even beyond staying busy, get involved with something that has a cause. Join a local group, a volunteer organization, or an extracurricular activity. Choose something that has personal value to you. The more purpose you give yourself, the better you’ll feel every day.

The post holiday season is one of the toughest times of year for mental health. But all hope is definitely not lost. Use these tips to protect yourself and your mental health, and make it to spring in the best health yet.
