T he holidays are the time expected by many. During those days off, many people go out of their environment, go to bed later, altering their habits the rest of the year.

Post-holiday depression

It is believed that the longer the vacation and has traveled further, the chances of getting the call by many post - holiday depression can affect more, but that is not so. Actually many people may appear to them to return their work, symptoms of an inadequate return to routine, not having even moved from its usual place.

There are studies that suggest that some people need even four or five days to recover and adapt after the holiday period.

Symptoms called by many "post - holiday depression" can be:

Sadness, longing, nervousness, moodiness, changes in diet, insomnia or bad habit at the time of sleep, lack of concentration, dispersion and memory lapses among others that disappear after a few days to return to work and routine.

There are people who by the way its cost will be more changes in the day and suffer more markedly maladaptive symptoms to return to the routine.

To counter these symptoms, specialists in psychology recommend think positively and rationally, arrive a few days before and adapt to the routine mental form, recovering habits and organize their habitat in order to also make exercise and eating a proper diet and good habit of sleep walking devote their city of habitual residence, go to the movies or meet friends to share experiences.

But for some years and due to the current economic and employment uncertainty, people tend to better accept the completion of your holiday.

They should not be remembered fondly, but as a good gift that we have been able to afford.

Happy return to everyday!
