Christmas depression is real and it hurts. Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time on earth. But for many, its the saddest, loneliest time. That’s because most of us have this fantasy of what a perfect Christmas should look and feel like. But fantasy rarely is reality. And that feeds your anxiety and depression.

For many the primary cause of Christmas depression is loneliness.
If it seems like everyone you know is getting together for the holiday, and couples are buying tokens of love for each other, you might easily feel left out from the love and romance if you’re not attached to anyone. Not everyone is coupled. Some people don’t even have families. Think of your uncle who isn’t married, never had kids, sits alone in the nursing home. Or the single guy who hangs out at his friends so he doesn’t have to go home to an empty condo.

Stress is unhelpful when it makes you feel overwhelmed or feeling like you can’t possibly fix the problem. In these cases, you avoid dealing with the original problem altogether. That makes the problem worse. It can be hard to concentrate, make decisions, or feel confident. Over time stress can have a big impact on your health.

What can I do about it?

Men and Sorry
According to researchers at the University of Waterloo, a man won’t apologize because he really doesn’t believe he’s done anything wrong.

A man’s threshold of what it means to be wrong in an issue is way higher than what a woman thinks is the threshold. So while a woman might think an apology is needed, a guy honestly won’t believe it because he doesn’t think the offence threshold has been reached. Of course in a relationship the offence threshold is usually somewhere between the two ideas, and so it can get testy when a guy doesn’t realize he might just be wrong.

Clutter impacts your mental health. The impact of hoarding on your mental health is that it causes parts of your brain that deal with pain and conflict to go berserk. Instead of leading a life that feels positive and calm, hoarders feel psychological pain.
