For those of you who have experienced post concert depression, we’re here to try to help you relieve that PCD. We’ve put together a list of “Tips to get over your Post Concert Depression” you can do to try to relieve that depression & clear your mind. Enjoy!
ONE: Plan your next concert
It’s always a good idea to get your mind off the last concert by making plans for your next one. Then you have something on the calendar to look forward to.
TWO: Reminisce on the night with friends or others who attended the concert
Internet friends: UNITE! You can always just keep talking about the night with the friend(s) you attended the concert with. It can keep you smiling & remembering the best parts of the night. If you went alone, find some friends on social media who went to the concert. Always a good outlet to relive the night of your life.
THREE: Take a relaxing bubble bath & light some candles
Taking baths are *chefs kiss*. It’s so peaceful, especially to be away from your phone & have that time to yourself. Definitely relaxes your mind.
FOUR: Get outside
Enjoy nature & some fresh air. Don’t take your phone. Again, it’s so peaceful to not constantly be checking your phone or waiting or expecting a call, text, email, tweet, etc. HOWEVER, if you want to bring it & listen to a podcast, that is funsies too. Some recommendations:
- Ours, DUH!! Post Concert Depression
- Guys We F*cked
- My Favorite Murder
- Scrubbing in with Becca Tilley & Tanya Rad
- Your Favorite Thing
FIVE: Move Your Body
When you get movement in, it feels good to work on yourself & get your mind off being depressed about the concert being over. Go to the gym & run on the treadmill (or walk, if that’s your style). Bench press. Lift weights. Ya know, the typical shit you do at the gym. WHATEVER FLOATS YA BOAT. Hiking. Biking. Yoga. Ja feel?
SIX: Get Outside
Sunlight really does boost a mood, don’t ya think? A little Vitamin C to brighten up the day. Whether that’s going for a walk, hitting up the park, or just sitting outside your home and basking in those rays.
SEVEN: Meditate or Pray
Just take 5 minutes to yourself with NO DISTRACTIONS. Completely clear your mind & just take deep breaths in & out. Can also calm you down if you’re having anxiety. Another form of this could be prayer, if you’re religious, spiritual, love Jesus or believe in a higher power.
EIGHT: Go for a drive & BLAST your music
You know what always feels great, especially on a nice day, is putting on your favorite song or artist, rolling your windows down & going for a drive. I always love doing this because I secretly think I enjoy rocking out in my car & letting my neighbors on the road enjoy the show.
NINE: Hit up the spa
Get a massage, your nails did, OR WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. It’s always nice to treat yo’ self.
TEN: Binge a show
Nothing like starting a new & FABULOUS show to distract your from your post concert blues. It will get you excited about something else. Some of my faves below:
- Friends (DUH!) on HBO Max
- Stranger Things on Netflix
- Upload on Amazon Prime
- Schitt’s Creek on Hulu
- The Mentalist on (I believe) Amazon Prime
