Early Signs of Holiday Depression and How Ketamine Therapy Can Support You
Holidays are something that, for so many of us, means getting to spend time with family and loved ones. In 2020, however, our everyday lives have been turned upside down in ways none of us could imagine. Holidays are different this year, harder than they typically may be for so many already that struggle during this time. Over 300,000 people in the US have lost a loved one due to COVID-19 and this may be their first year celebrating holidays without them.
Families that have lost jobs and income may be struggling to pay their bills, making it difficult to allow for extra money to buy gifts, travel to see family or celebrate the holidays in their typical way. So many of us have felt the impact of isolation and the fact we are all discouraged from traveling this holiday season and limiting contact with others outside of our household.
All of this combined is adding additional stress to our already everyday lives. It is important we stay in contact with our loved ones and family during this time as well as watching out for ourselves and recognizing early signs that may show we are experiencing depression.
Signs of early depression include:
- Feeling lonely
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling angry or irritable
- Sleeping less or much more than you typically would
- Lack of pleasure or losing interest in activities/hobbies you typically enjoy
- Feelings of fatigue or exhaustion
- Trouble making decisions
- Isolating from various forms of communication
