Holiday depression is common and perhaps up to 10% of the population suffers from it to some degree or another. It is usually related to the holiday season because it brings back memories of a happier time in our lives. We may remember spending past holidays with a loved one who is no longer with us. Or we may get depressed by seeing so many others who have someone special in their lives — whether it be their family, close friends, or a significant other — to share the season with. Or it may be a combination of these things and others, such as dealing with an ongoing mental disorder.
Herein, Dr. John Grohol helps you make it through the stressful season of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas with some handy tips.
