Psychologist Steve Wilson: Post-Holiday Let-Down May be Worse Than the Holiday Blues as Explained in New Handbook
Date:12/13/2012

to get rid of the sugar blues. Of course, anyone who is seriously depressed should seek professional help. Some individuals will use their discomfort as motivation to take positive steps toward well-being such as exercising more and eating healthy. Wilson's Nifty Fifty suggestions include to meditating, volunteering, keeping a journal, planning a couple of months of fun things to do. For lots of positive ideas, check out the website of National Humor Month.

It's a good idea to get back to doing things in daily life that have a schedule, structure, and routine, such as going to the gym or even mundane things like doing laundry, walking the dog, or going to the car wash. Also, pampering with the kinds of things that help a person feel good like a massage, a pedicure, or just quiet time to chill out. Some people may take comfort in knowing that others are in the same place and will recover.

Research in the relatively new field of positive psychology has shown that gratitude, focusing on positive experiences, exercise, meditating, and random acts of kindness are ways that can change the pattern through which your brain views work and life. Here are some of the activities the researchers found effective for improving workplace well-being in a 21-day program. The positive effects were significant and lasted at least four month.

  •     Write down three new things to be grateful for each day;
  •     Write for 2 minutes a day describing one positive experience over the past 24 hours;
  •     Exercise for 10 minutes a day;
  •     Meditate for 2 minutes, focusing on breath going in and out;
  •     Write one, quick email first thing in the morning thanking or praising a member of the work team.
