Managing Post-party blues as part of the celebration

Insight's Dr. Ellen Astrachan-Fletcher contributes to Chicago Tribune's Jenniffer Weigel piece on how to deal with after the party.
From Detroit Free Press comes the article “Post-party blues are all part of the celebration” from Chicago Tribune's Jenniffer Weigel. Weigel points out that it's natural, for example, to feel disappointment after being the bride-to-be for more than a year or planning a huge party, a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. There's the sadness that it's over and then regrets for things that didn't go as planned.
Try to really embrace the meaning of the event. 'Now I have this wonderful spouse’ or ‘Now I made it to 50 and I had all these loved ones around me celebrating with me.’ So every day you can acknowledge this shift, rather than focus on the fact that this big party is over.” Ellen Astrachan-Fletcher
