What are the November blues?

November in Germany is often characterized by cold, darkness and drizzle. Many people feel down and lacking in energy during this period. This phenomenon is called the November blues.

This year, the November blues seem to be hitting especially hard. The Corona pandemic has changed our lives and brought with it many restrictions. The days are getting shorter and the darkness seems to surround us even more strongly. Many people are afraid of the future and feel especially lonely and isolated during this time.

It is important to understand that the November blues is not a disease, but a temporary feeling of sadness and melancholy. However, there are ways to counteract it. This includes, for example, getting enough exercise in the fresh air, eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep. Social contacts can also help to overcome the feeling of loneliness.

  • Tips against the November blues:
  • Exercise in the fresh air
  • Healthy diet
  • Get regular sleep
  • Maintain social contacts

It is important to take care of yourself and accept yourself during the November blues period. It’s normal to feel sad and lonely during this time of year. But it’s also important to be careful that these feelings don’t get out of hand and turn into depression or other serious mental illnesses.

Why the November blues are worse this year?

The November blues are already an integral part of the fall season. However, when 2020 is considered, the November blues are extra-fierce this year. This is due to several reasons.

For one thing, most people have had a difficult year due to the Corona pandemic. The restrictions on social life, the constant wearing of masks, and the fear of infection have taken a toll on many people. This is especially noticeable in November, when the days get shorter and the weather becomes more uncomfortable.

On the other hand, the lack of events and other activities in November 2020 is perceived particularly strongly. There are usually plenty of opportunities in November to get together with friends and family or attend parades and celebrations. However, this is not possible this year due to the Corona pandemic, which can lead to additional loneliness and frustration.

So it is understandable that the November blues are worse this year than in previous years. However, it is important to stay positive and take care of your health despite all this. The situation is temporary and there will be better times again.
