Syndrome Post-Holiday Stress can cause sadness, apathy, depression, and tachycardia, shortness of breath, blood, muscle aches and stomach problems and, as experts estimate, affects young adults between 25 and 40.
Patricia Hanson Gabby, director of Hem era, Centre for Studies on Stress and anxiety, said, “A syndrome is defined as a pathological condition associated with a series of concurrent symptoms, usually three or more.” Gabby of Hanson remarked that “post-holiday stress, as his words indicate, is the stress that comes after the holidays.”
“Although it is accepted as the major disease classifications, is being given increasing importance. Some authors think that this is just a temporary situation that disappears when the person passes the process of adapting to the new situation. For example again work and daily routines in the case of adults and children for back to school, “said the expert.
Also, the specialist said that when the adjustment process fails “generated a series of physical and psychological symptoms” and added that these symptoms, if they last over time, “can affect the quality of life of the sufferer.”
“This table insomnia with marked daytime sleepiness, poor concentration, apathy regarding the tasks that must be faced and anxiety. They can also appear sadness, apathy, depression, tachycardia, shortness of breath, blood, muscle aches and stomach problems, “he added.
Hanson Gabby emphasized that the main cause of this syndrome is the change in the daily rhythm disturbance of the biological clock “and that” during the holiday pace of life suffers a significant change. ““Generally we go to bed later and so does the time to get up. There is a total mess in our habits and our routine. The power varies as well as our social activity,” he said.
The specialist said, “Back to life every day means a sharp change for our organization.” “If we add to this lack of motivation at work or activities to be undertaken to return, the subjective experience can be very negative. The combination of both situations can lead to post-holiday syndrome,” he said.
The specialist said that the most exposed population is young adults “aged between 25 and 40 years.”
“Thumbelina Robles Ortega, a researcher at the University of Granada, said that 35% of Spanish workers have post-holiday syndrome,” he said.
In addition, the expert noted that the research recommends
- Divide the vacation time. It is better to go on vacation twice in 15 days instead of after 30 days.
A team of scientists from University College London, the National Institute for Health and Medical Research in France, and the University of Montpellier, in France analyzed the relationship between the form of food and the chance of depression.
More precisely, the association between a healthy diet and balanced and to prevent the development of this highly complex disorder that affects not only the social life of sufferers, but also “installed” in both the psyche and the body of those affected.
“Most previous work on the topic focused on the action to have certain nutrients on depression, while we take and look at food as a whole,” the investigators said the 3,486 people involved, whose average age was 57 years.
That group was divided over the five-year long investigation into two smaller biases. On the one hand, the people who ate healthy, fruits, vegetables, vegetables and fish, and those who preferred other processed foods, sugars, fried foods and dairy fat.
“We developed a questionnaire designed to assess potential alterations in mood, and established that people who chose to processed foods were 58% more likely to develop depression, compared with those following a healthy diet,” they added scientists.
“We are extremely pleased that we found a very consistent pattern of relationship between the way of feeding and the possibility of developing depression. However, further studies will be necessary to confirm definitively,” they stated.
This need arises from a question: are those who choose a diet rich in fat more susceptible to depression, or else it is that people with depressive tendencies usually opt for a less healthy diet? Is a bilateral or one of the diseases “caused” or triggers another?
“In general the relationship between depression and other disorders is bilateral. This means that although depressive symptoms are affecting the development of certain diseases, there are some diseases that can help a person suffering from a depressive illness,” said Dr. Luis Herrnstein, psychoanalyst and president of the Foundation for the Study of Depression (FUNDEP).
“To which we must be very aware of is the so-called ‘masked depression’ that occurs when the mood alteration not expressed through physical symptoms such as sadness, but from physiological changes, completed the specialist.
On the other hand it is noteworthy that depression is a state of sadness or distress passenger, but a deeper problem that usually do not conform to a single cause, but many. In fact, it is assumed that the development of this disorder is due to a combination of psychological, genetic and biochemical.
Your symptoms may also vary because contrary to what many people think being depressed is not about always and inevitably to be drawn all day in bed.
Those with the disorder through various stages or moments in which usually takes possession of them has marked irritability, a deep interest in activities that used to enjoy and a great pessimism.
