So OVO is over and Veld has gone and passed. Your ears might still be ringing and you’re fist pumping in your sleep but it’s time to get back to the real world. *sigh* (I know, I feel you.)
The problem is, where do you start? What is this “real” world? What if you’re not ready to transition back into the mundane life of post-festival living? Don’t worry, we have some tips to ease you back into it.
1. Cut it off. (Or carefully wriggle it off your wrist and put it into a memory box).
Don’t pretend like you haven’t thought about keeping your wristband on until the next festival. The best thing you can do for yourself is to cut that wristband off. Don’t let it be a constant reminder of the time of your life you just experienced. It will only feed your post-festival depression. Put it away. Out of sight, out of mind, right?
2. Discover new music.
Instead of listening to the same tracks you’ve been dancing your ass off to the whole weekend, try a different speed of things. Try and find some new artists and bands that will help you keep your mind off the turnt up weekend you just had. Spotify and Songza are your friends.
3. Tell ALL your friends.
You should probably stick to reliving it with other fellow festival go-ers since your friends that didn’t go are probably either a) not interested or b) super jealous. Either way, tell anyone who will listen. Get it ALL out of your system.
4. Put the pictures and videos away.
I’ll admit, I’m guilty of this. Stop looking at all the pictures of flower crowns and kandi bracelets you’ve acquired over the weekend. Save those for #tbt.
5. Don’t worry, be happy.
If all else fails and you’re still feeling the post-festival depression, don’t worry. There’s always tomorrow(world) and other festivals just around the corner. Before you know it, you’ll be back out there dancing, bumping, grinding and fist pumping.
How do you deal with your post-festival depression?
