the Emotional Hangover

Brad Cole warned, “When you leave Folk Alliance, you will feel the emotional hangover on Monday!”

Racing through a fast-paced schedule; seeing friends; meeting new people; performing music at 2 AM–once the event ends, a musician must acclimate to the normal routine again, which is followed by a decrease in endorphins, a dip in mood.

Yep, finishing a project is often followed by an emotional hangover. Even returning from that family vacation is subject to it. (How often do we say, “I need a vacation from my vacation?”)

The best way to beat the hangover is stay hydrated, with a return to your daily work. That creative headache will pass.
