The holiday season is supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, getting together with family and friends, enjoying merriment, and indulging in good food. However, for many people, the holidays are anything but enjoyable. Depression may occur anytime throughout the year, but the stress and anxiety of the holiday season can cause many to feel overwhelmed by emotions during the months of November and December.
One of the leading causes of depression during the holiday season is social isolation. Seeing commercials of families and groups of friends gathering together for meals and evenings of laughter can lead people to feel lonely and unworthy. People who suffer from feelings of disconnectedness may ask themselves, “Why can’t that be me” or “Why is everyone else so much happier than I am?” These feelings of depression can cause many to experience loneliness and a lack of fulfillment.
Of course, another stressor this year has been the Coronavirus pandemic. Besides dealing with the prolonged stress of this worldwide pandemic, now people are facing a holiday season that may look very different from any they have ever experienced before. With COVID-19 restrictions put in place throughout many cities across the United States, feelings of isolation are sure to be at the forefront of many people’s emotional well-being this holiday season. People have had to make many changes to their typical holiday rhythms, but now many traditions, travel plans, and gathering with those you love have been restricted. Without the natural rhythm of the holidays, many people find themselves lost and struggling.
Whether you are dealing with holiday depression that affects you every year or COVID-19 has brought you to an emotional state that you cannot seem to overcome, there is optimism.
