The holidays are over, and with the start of a new year, we are often dealt a case of “Santa shock”. Its main symptoms are the result of the house and daily schedule being in disarray, as well as those first post-holiday credit card statements haunting you as the ghosts of purchases past!
The good news is, all it takes is some self-care and planning to make a full recovery from Santa shock. Here are four ways you can bounce back from the post-holiday slump.

Get your house organized! To ease the overwhelm, move all the holiday clutter into one area. Then make a list of all you need to do to get your home looking liveable.

Set a regular sleep schedule, plan balanced meals and reintegrate exercise into daily life.
