Like most here I adore Christmas and I love everything about it, the build up, the shopping, the buzz, the holidays everything, and when the season is over I am seriously down in the dumps. This year more so than has hit me hard, I was back in work Wednesday and that was heartbreaking!!! Took down the decorations today which was also upsetting, I think it's hurting more this year as I am living in Dublin with my beautiful girlfriend but all of my family and friends who I saw or the Christmas live back home in tipp.
Does anyone have any advice on how to tackle the jan blues????
I hear you. Feckin' love christmas. I think the january blues are natural enough. I mean theres always a coming down period after any big event. I know a girl who got married during the summer and had a bad case of post-wedding blues for months after. I dont think the answer though is to book holidays or start planning other events straight away because what you're really doing there is avoiding feeling the loss of something you enjoyed. I think if you start booking things you'll never stop and end up on a constant treadmill of bouncing from one thing to another.
Like I said I love christmas big time and I do feel that loss when its all over, but I find that if you just let it be and not try to avoid or get away from feeling that loss, it works itself out pretty quickly and you're good to go.
