How to Survive the Post-Holiday Blues

How to Survive the Post-Holiday Blues | The best of the best: Jesus Christ | Scoop.it
Don't let feelings of sadness get you down after the holidays. Here's how to get back on track for a healthy and happy new year.

 

The holiday season is an emotional roller coaster and stepping off at the and can leave you with a case of psychological whiplash.  Whether it's caused by feelings of guilt from overindulgence, unmet expectations, or a return to loneliness, depression after the holidays is a common condition. So common, in fact, that there is even a name for it - the 'post-holiday blues.'

 

Feelings of sadness, guilt, and anger can kick off genuine symptoms of depression ranging from mild unhappiness to more troublesome symptoms such as insomnia, irritability, inability to eat or overeating, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, and anxiety.  But you don't have to let the holiday blues get you down.

Rethinking Christian Unity

Frank Viola on Christian unity...


Via Martin Pierce, God Is.
God Is.'s insight:

I have said it before, I have come accross it before, I will say it again... in different words yet same words: Divided we perish. United we stand...

 

 Here is another Christian talking about the same topic: “There is one body and one Spirit” Eph. 4:1–6. Everything Paul wrote in this letter was based on the conviction that the body of Christ is one. “One Lord, one faith, one [Spirit] baptism, one God and Father of all” (vv. 5–6). Our lives also must express this conviction. And the way we express it is by affirming our love for other believers—even for those with whom we differ. Paul reminds us, “Be completely humble and gentle.” Christians do differ, and differ on important matters. If we focus on our differences, convinced as we are that we are right and the others are wrong, we will become proud and judgmental. Only a humble spirit will free us to love without feeling the need to debate our differences. Only a humble spirit will maintain the bond of peace. Don’t be proud. No matter how doctrinally correct you may be, if your attitude denies the oneness of the body of Christ, you are wrong.

Frank tells a story here about the Plymouth Brethren. This was one of the most sectarian groups in Protestant history. The Brethren gave us the false teacher, John Nelson Darby, the father of Dispensationalism. Clearly, the Holy Spirit did not approve of their sectarian spirit.

 

For me, this blog post raises questions in relation to what beliefs we should be willing to surrender for the sake of Christian unity.

But never has empathy been so important. We live in an unprecedented era of accelerated and unpredictable change. I completely agree with Rifkin that "the empathic evolution of the human race and the profound ways it has shaped our development... will likely decide our fate as a species."

 

I wonder whether I can single out the development of empathy as the most important issue that underscores all other issues in the World Economic Forum's Survey on the Global Agenda? I would love to hear global leaders discuss that topic! And now, how to reframe my assignment to my Columbia MBAs?
