It’s okay to feel depressed post-Diwali, here’s what causes it

Here is how you can deal with post-Diwali blues:

It’s not just you! Independence Day opens doors for the array of festivals that follow it. Even before Diwali’s arrival, the festive vibe triggers a supreme adrenaline rush in our bodies. As we get closer to D-Day, we find ourselves indulged in preparations, surrounded by cheers and lights of togetherness and happiness. This is the peak of tranquility and a change from our everyday busy lives. After living a month full of joy, cheer, and togetherness, it is normal not to wish for the time to pass and feel depressed as it approaches.

What you’re going through is known as the post-festival withdrawal syndrome or holiday blues. But here is how you can avoid and tackle this phase like a pro, 

Christmas is Coming: Indeed, the festival of light has ended, but wonder what awaits? It’s winter jingles, a luscious feast, and an exchange of gifts with friends and family. And for the best part, the party doesn’t end here. Next up, we have the New Year celebration and a whole new year full of festivals.  

Stay Connected: You can always make plans with friends and family even after the celebrations have ended to help you feel less lonely. The holiday may have ended, but the people are still here to make it better. 

Avoid Slacking: Don’t let the fire inside your heart melt to ashes. Get moving! Break free from the chains of boredom and enroll in your favorite activity. Moreso, meet new people and expand your horizons. 

Take a Good Nap: The possibilities are that the rush of the festive season didn’t leave you many hours of rest. Now that the smog has lifted, it’s time for a deep, relaxing, and healing sleep. This will refresh your mood and tackle the gloom of tiredness. 

Stay Under the Sun: The advent of winter comes with shorter days and longer nights, a major trigger for seasonal depression. This is a crucial phase; don’t miss out on your Vitamin D every day for a good start and indulge more in outdoor sports.
