Post-Christmas Slump

Confession: I've been feeling a bit glum the past few days.
My birthday is over. Christmas is over.

The holiday lights will soon come down. I'll need to file away my lovely birthday cards. Music stations have already replaced Christmas tunes with their "80s, 90s and Today" lineups. That excited, festive spirit begins to vanish. Our beautiful tree will lose its ornaments and be tossed to the curb...I mean, this is sad stuff!

Plus, the rich, delicious foods are gone. Yet the excess weight remains.

And even though I have plenty to look forward to in the next few weeks—New Year's Eve, an Italian cooking class at Sur La Table with Adam, a hair appointment, tickets to Kinky Boots—I can't help but feel a bit down.

Does anyone else go through a post-Christmas slump? How do you cope?

Please let me know if you have any advice for this Holiday Queen.

I'll be off setting the coffee maker timer for tomorrow morning and choosing an outfit for work. And probably be fluctuating between feelings of anxiety, sadness, and plumpness.

I should really add the gym to that above list of upcoming activities.

  1. I hear you ... I think it is so hard to going from the happiest time of the year and then it just all going to an abrupt end. Having to wait a whole year for that festive feeling is not fun for anyone.
