The holiday blues

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Christmas is behind us, but there may still be plenty of celebrating in your future.

Make sure you keep your health in mind.

Dr. John Clay is keeping an eye on the holiday blues.

Many people have particular problems with feelings of sadness, loneliness, stress and anxiety during the holiday season.

Exercise helps with stress relief and makes you feel more energetic. Surround yourself during these times with people whom you care about and feel the same about you.

See your doctor if symptoms are progressively worsening or you feel more socially withdrawn. Medications and counseling are possible options.
