Overcome the After-Christmas Blues

Overcome the After-Christmas Blues

Do you ever have the blues after Christmas?

When my daughter was about three, we took down our live Christmas tree during her nap. When she woke, she went to the window and said, “Christmas tree, please come back.”

That made me sad.

Dr. Michelle Bingstrom

Putting up decorations is fun, but I hate taking them down. When you finish, your house feels bare and cold. So, how can we overcome the post-Christmas blues? My guest this week was Dr. Michelle Bengstrom who holds a degree in psychology. She studied neurology and how the brain works. For instance, she suggested you get outside in the sunshine. The light increases your mood even if you slather on sunscreen like I do.
