1. You are eating everything in sight
During the holidays, we are making all sorts of buttery, sugary, calorie-laden dishes and desserts – and there is no harm in indulging. But if you find yourself eating all day or binging at night, then something emotional is probably going on.
2. You are procrastinating about shopping.
If you find yourself saying, “I just can’t do it today”, everyday – then you are headed for the blues. You are attempting to avoid all blatant reminders of the holidays – and shopping for presents is a big one.
3. You ride past your house.
In a mad dash during this holiday season? To the stores. To relatives. To the bank. To your children’s holiday celebrations etc. You are headed for a big old stress meltdown, which can lead to a chronic case of the blues.
4. You cry at every Christmas song on the radio.
Is every rendition of Silent Night making you cry your eyes out? All these holiday songs and/or television commercials are driving you crazy because they are bringing up something nostalgic or something painful about the holidays. Whether it’s a deceased relative that won’t be there with you this year or a reminder of the first Christmas after your divorce or your parents’ divorce – you are probably feeling a little low right now.
5. You are asking yourself – what is the point of decorating this year.
Something has you down about this holiday season, and you don’t really see the point of doing anything to celebrate it. You may be lonely this year. You may be in a bad financial situation. You may have lost a loved one. Maybe you didn’t have the child you expected you would have by now. Whatever the case, you will scream if you see one more house with Rudolph on the lawn.
Remember that holiday blues are just feelings of depression that exist during specific times and are often related to what the holiday means or meant to the person. These blues should subside after the season has passed and even earlier if you work on ridding yourself of them!
One way to help rid yourself of these blues is to explore and have an Emotion Code Session done. An Emotion Code Session will identify specific emotions that are causing your feeling of sadness during the season. Your first session is free, simply sign up on the form on the right to get started.

The following is taken from The Emotion Code Book:
Jennifer’s experience is a good example of how trapped emotions can get in your way. She was my daughter’s close friend, a fun-loving college student with a bright future. On her way home for the summer, she stopped by to visit our family. Her college life was going well, but she expressed concern that events from her past still troubled her, and she wondered if she was suffering from trapped emotions.
She told me she’d been involved in a tumultuous relationship with a young man the year before. Jennifer said that since the failure of that stormy relationship, she felt the sting of insecurity every time she met someone new, and had an unfounded fear of commitment that she couldn’t overcome. She told me that she seemed to unintentionally sabotage every potential relationship that she began. I tested her and discovered that there was indeed, at least one trapped emotion that was contributing to her problem.
I decided to help her learn to treat herself, so she could continue to release her own trapped emotions without my assistance, since she lived some distance away. She quickly and easily learned the Emotion Code and proceeded to find several trapped emotions in her body, most notably the emotion of creative insecurity. This particular emotion arises from a lack of confidence about creating things; from painting a picture, starting a new job, or entering into a new relationship, etc. Jennifer had experienced this emotion in her prior relationship, and it had become trapped within her. She was able to release the creative insecurity as well as a few other trapped emotions from her body within a few minutes, and then continue her drive home.
A few days later she called, exclaiming that she felt an amazing difference. She said that she felt a noticeable improvement in her ability to articulate her thoughts and express herself in the company of a particular young man that she was dating. Previously she had felt intimidated and shy around him, but after releasing her trapped emotions she felt very at ease and confident.
Months later, she continued to watch the relationship grow. She felt certain that she would have sabotaged it if she had not released her trapped emotions.
Getting rid of your trapped emotions can help you to overcome the obstacles of your past and can bring new life to your marriage, family, and other personal relationships.
