#EngKnowledge: “Post-Holiday Blues”

Do you notice that when the holiday is about to end (akan berakhir) you tend (cenderung) to feel gloomy (muram)?

Not only that you feel gloomy, but you may also experience headache or loss of energy.

There’s actually a term for that: Post-Holiday Blues! 

Post-Holiday Blues is known as Post-Vacation Blues in the USA and Canada.

Also known as Post-Travel Depression (PTD), it usually happens after a long holiday esp. when the holiday is pleasant.

The ide of having to go back to the routine can be very daunting (menakutkan, menegangkan) for some people.

Whilst it may seem unpleasant, PTD is not an incurable (tidak dapat disembuhkan) condition.

As time goes by, we begin to adjust to our routine again.

However, there are ways to make this process easier.

One of them is by trying to relive (menghidupkan kembali) the memories by looking at holiday photos or sharing holiday stories.

It helps you to move on sooner, though I also think it can also make you miss it even more :D

The best way to handle it: Plan the bext holiday! :D You are going to have something to look forward to as you go through your routine.

Something to look forward to = sesuatu untuk dinantikan

Go through routine = menjalani rutinitas

Do you have any tips to handle Post-Holiday Blues?
