17. Dec. 16, 2011 — MOUNTAINEER 17 Measures beat holiday blues Commentary by Capt. Claudia Bradford Evan Army Community Hospital Behavioral Health Department The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and laughter filled with Family and friends. However, for many people, it is a time where they feel depressed and lonely. This time of year can bring on feelings of sadness and anxiety, which are hard to shake, especially for Soldiers who are far away from their Families and loved ones. Dealing with a deployment over the holidays can be difficult. There are many reasons for these feelings of sadness, low energy, decreased motivation and fatigue, but there are proven ways to cope. First, recognize some of the warning signs such as headaches; an inability to sleep or sleeping too much; changes in appetite that cause weight loss or gain; agitation and anxiety; excessive or inappropriate feelings of guilt; diminished ability to think clearly or concentrate; and decreased interest in activities that are usually enjoyable, such as food, hobbies and friends. Here are a few coping strategies: • Take things one day at a time and, if need be, one hour at a time. • Try to maintain a normal routine. Keep doing regular activities. • Get enough sleep or at least enough rest. • Exercise regularly. Even walking helps relieve stress, tension and improve moods. Photo by Staff Sgt. Wayne Barnett • Eat a healthy, balanced diet.
