There are always some days, in which you feel empty, uncomfortable, and irritable. In most of the cases, people just ignore these feelings and think it will pass in several days. But in some cases, if you don’t take any measure, you will find that you are slowly trapped by these feelings and lose interest and focus of other things.

 Here are some tips:

  1. Develop some interests. A people having more interests usually feels less negative. This is because their life are fulfilled with many meaningful things that delight them. It’s the emptiness not busyness which make you feel depressed. In workday, you always have a lot to focus. But once you have a long holiday, you just don’t know how to kill the time. Like my mom’s colleague, when they are going to retire from their jobs, they prefer to stay because they feel something is missing. Don’t let one thing possess all your life. Give yourself some spaces to hold your interest that no one can take away from you.
  2. Turn to your friends. When you feel that you’re controlled by negative feelings, you can turn to your friend. Not cry on their shoulders but hang out to play basketball, or see a movie. Try to make fun and regain the positive attitude from your real life! You can be depressed sometimes, but not all the time. Try to get rid of it as soon as possible!

Guess many of you just came back home from travel. How is the break? I heard from my friend that she felt so depressed and stressful because of work next week. Do you feel the same? You may think that after break, you should be more energetic on work. But the truth is opposite. This is post-holiday syndrome, which is same as monday syndrome. 

When you are at weekday, you are highly tense. Once there is a break, you soon get totally relaxed and changed all your daily schedule. And when you are back to work, you don’t adjust yourself to the working environment, thus making you feel tired and stressful.

Here is what you can do. Tell yourself that you are now fully prepared for next week and change your schedule back to normal. Make a to-do-list to avoid that you rush to school and office without ideas of what to start. Also create some fun on Monday. Like having a talk with your classmates and colleagues during lunchtime about your trip.

Now get you a good sleep and prepare for next week to make sure that you won’t have a meltdown like Garfield!

If  you always feel stressed out, here’s some tips:

1. Refresh your mind. Sometimes people may think too much under pressure while the real situation isn’t that worse. Base your judgement on the objective facts rather than your own feelings.

2. Time management. I also mentioned this in the issue of procrastination. Record what you’ve done every day and check whether you waste too much time on one thing like surfing the Internet. Then make a time schedule and prioritize things by importance and deadline.

3. Learn to say “NO”. Many people always act to be too nice and can’t turn down others’ requirement.  Don’t bring yourself too much issues that you can’t handle. Learn to say “no” to others while it’s out of your limit.
