Yesterday was our final Christmas celebration with family, and this morning I woke up with a case of the post holiday blues. My symptoms include: exhaustion, malaise, indigestion, and extreme aversion to sweets and anything related to Christmas. You can contract this illness by being exposed to the usual holiday stress, as well as staying up way too late, eating rich holiday foods, and trying to do way too much. On top of all that, post holiday blues can be made worse by the realization that you still have all those Christmas decorations to put away and a huge after Christmas mess to deal with.
I realized long ago that post holiday blues are just my body's way of telling me it's time to go back to my simple pre-holiday life. So this morning I took a long walk, had a healthy breakfast, and decided that the Christmas decorations could stay put another day. I feel better already, and by tomorrow I should be able to tackle all those wonderful after Christmas tasks!
