Many people find it difficult to adjust back to work and study after a pleasant holiday. Post-holiday Syndrome is characterized by fatigue, anxiety and sleepiness. Here are some TCM tips to help you beat the syndrome.

Balance the diet
During holidays, people tend to eat more frequently. Hence, attention should be paid to regulate dietary habits. It is advisable not to overeat meat, fried food, cold food and spicy food, so our stomachs will not be overburdened. Drinking sufficient water and having fresh vegetables can improve the movement of the gastrointestinal tract. Physical exercise can improve digestive function while smoking and drinking make it worse. Click to learn Sweating Syndrome in TCM.

Keep life organized
Visiting family and friends can break our daily routine and lead to disorders of the autonomic nervous system and sleeping. However, it can be relieved through rest and supplemental nutrition. Make sure you sleep 7 to 8 hours a day but do not try to go to bed too early.

Sleeping disorders caused by fatigue can be relieved by taking wuweizi (fructus schisadrae) tea before sleep and having some baihe (lilium brownii) porridge in the morning and evening. Chinese xueha (snow frog) stew with red lotus seeds and red dates, and stewed fishbone soup with soybean are good choices to enhance our immunity.

Spending long hours in front of the TV or computer may give rise to qi stagnation and blood stasis and obstruction of the meridians. TCM classic Huangdi Neijing says that meridians and vessels shouldn't be obstructed as they play an essential function. Having a TCM massage can help to promote qi circulation in meridian and collateral system. Click to learn Gout in TCM.
