Avoiding the Post-Wedding Blues


postwedding

Do you remember that feeling as a child when your summer camp was over? And then, after that one week that once felt like an eternity, life resumes to normal? The post-wedding blues are extremely common and everyone suffers from them at one point or another. What helps the most is reminding yourself that they’re part of the entire wedding experience and are, at times, something to be savored.

While you’ve just enjoyed your second wedding and possibly your second honeymoon too, the memories (and gifts) and your wonderful new partner are what remain. For some, this calm after the whirlwind of events is more than welcome, but for others it can take some time to get used to. But fear not, there are tons of ways to help you thoroughly enjoy this time.

Plan for the Following Months

After tying up all the loose ends, it’s time to let loose. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Regardless of what has come before, your second marriage has come and gone and now is the time to celebrate with the person you love most. Book that concert you’ve been dying to go to, reserve a table at that cozy restaurant around the corner, or finally check out that theater that recently opened up. Whether it be arts, culture, sport or recreation, now that the dust has settled you finally have the chance to tick all those things off your list.

Take it Easy

Most of us get so caught up in the planning, the preparation, and of course the moment, that we don’t even notice the lack of sleep over the last few weeks. Now is the time to make sure your home is cozy and comfortable. Stock up that fridge with all your favorite things and enjoy the peace and relaxation that you may require to process everything. Maybe even discover the benefits of meditation, or even look at picking up a new mattress, as it has to be one that both of you will like! Here is an option that many are checking out, namely because of the contemporary memory foam. You can also read this article to find out what the most popular mattresses are today. Don’t undervalue the importance of resting, especially while on the cusp of your new adventure.

Make Yourself at Home

One of the perks of having a wedding is of course the thoughtful gifts. Create little reminders of your wedding throughout the house by decorating your home with some wedding pictures, or by buying a new bouquet of flowers to put in that gifted vase. Your wedding is a moment you will cherish forever more, so decorate your new, or your revamped, home accordingly!

Talk it Through

You have decided to take this next step with your loved one for a reason, so try sharing your feelings with each other. They are your biggest fan and your partner for life now. You may find that you both have mutual feelings and that talking about them is extremely beneficial and helpful.

It may take a bit of time to adapt to the flow of things in your new situation but in the meantime, try to savor every moment you can.
