Even though that is what the song says, it is not always that way. You might be feeling blue for many reasons: you might feel upset since a recent breakup occurred or a death in the family, or your holiday does not look like the Hallmark movies.
I have focused on the difficulties around food and the holidays in many of my recent podcasts and blog, but I have not talked much about the emotional difficulties that show up this time of year. If you are feeling blue this holiday, my most recent podcast is for you. Even if you are not feeling blue, the holidays can bring up unexpected difficult feelings.

Episode 31– Holiday Blues
In this episode, we look at holiday blues, which is different than holiday stress. Just because we are “supposed” to feel happy over the holidays, doesn’t mean that we always feel that way. There are things you can do to move through the holiday season even when you are feeling blue.
In this podcast we discuss:
- What are 5 signs of Holiday Blues?
- Learn the 7 typical causes of Holiday Blues.
- Get into action with 10 different activities that can help with Holiday Blues.
