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.

Causes and Results

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
