The Grinch or Santa?

Or maybe you have Holiday Depression?

The Grinch or Santa?


The holiday season is a fun time of the year. Parties, celebrations, family, and friends. But also could be a time filled with sadness and anxiety.

Maybe you think: I hate Christmas! I'm The Grinch!

You're not The Grinch; you have Holiday Depression.

While it is true that depression can occur at any time of year, the reality is that during the months of November and December, stress and anxiety levels can cause people who are usually very happy to experience dissatisfaction or loneliness.


One factor that can trigger the Holiday Depression is social isolation.


Social isolation can lead to feelings of disconnection and loneliness. One of the best ways to deal with social isolation is to seek support from family, friends, partners, or someone you trust. You can even seek professional help from a mental health expert so that you can start working on recognizing where your feelings come from and developing effective solutions to overcome them.


Causes and results of Holiday Depression

Sadness and anxiety are personal feelings. Shopping, a lot of parties, family commitments, and a house full of guests may increase tension and blue sensation. Here are some other causes:

  • Stress.
  • Fatigue or Burnout.
  • Unreliable expectations.
  • Over-commercialization.
  • Financial burden.
  • Inability to be with our family or friends.


And the result of all these could be:

  • Migraine.
  • Immoderate drinking.
  • Over-eating.
  • Insomnia.


If you want to sing "All I want for Christmas is You" and feel amazing, follow these tips:

  • Prioritize to reduce stress.
  • Set realistic goals for yourself.
  • Relax and don't try to push for the picture-perfect holiday.
  • Be realistic about money and responsibilities.
  • Limit your drinking.
  • Live and enjoy the present
  • Spend time with people who support and care about you.
  • Spend time with supportive and caring souls.
  • Make time for yourself!
  • Share responsibilities with others; you can't do everything alone.
  • Manage seasonal affective disorder.
  • If you are lonely or far from home, try volunteering some time to help others.
  • Keep in mind your expenses.


You can do it! Maybe almost we can sing together, "Jingle Bell."
