Today’s world can be frightfully depressing, but you don’t have to let it get you or your family down.
Every year the media is full of stories about holiday depression. There’s a myth that more suicides are committed during the Christmas season than any other time of year. Researchers have studied the phenomena and discovered that suicide rates actually decline a little before Christmas. In fact, statistics from the CDC prove that the suicide rates are somewhat lower during November, December and January. Yet, the myth persists.
Myths notwithstanding, many people still experience depression during this time of year. For some it has to do with Season Affective Disorder or SAD. Lack of light can depress the mood of a person suffering from this disorder. Using a special light daily can help and possibly eliminate the problem. There are individuals who are predisposed to depression through heredity. An episode may be triggered by stress. We all know the stress that can be brought on by the holidays. Those who have recurring bouts of major depression whether during the holidays or any other time should seek the help they need.
Many people who experience sadness during the holidays will find that the blues will lift. According to Myrna Weissman, Ph.D., a member of the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, people who don’t have major depression disorders may be experiencing a transient episode of depression. Positive experiences and interactions with close relatives and friends may dispel the doldrums.
Coming together with family and friends doesn’t need to be limited to special occasions. When you’re feeling down, reaching out to someone and sharing a good time is like medicine for the weary soul. Having fun does not need to be expensive either. Going for a walk or spending time outdoors in a natural environment is good for uplifting a blue mood. Put on some upbeat music and you’ll be surprised at how good it can make you feel.
Take time to make a pizza or share a bowl of popcorn and watch a funny movie together; quality time can cause the blues to evaporate. Engage a loved one in a conversation about good times, hopes and aspirations. Create something together. Sitting down with crayons and paper for a coloring session can provide just the therapy you need to eliminate those sad feelings.
