- This is the time of year when many seniors find themselves feeling depressed. The holiday season can be sad if we’ve lost a loved one or if we’re far away from those we love. And spending time with a crowd of family doesn’t make us immune! Excessive expectations for gift-giving, decorating and preparations, dealing with difficult relationships (and this year, for many, those political arguments!), can lead to holiday-related stress and the “holiday blues”—feelings of disappointment, sadness, fatigue or frustration. Too little sleep and too much alcohol don’t help, either.
