Got the recent grad blues? Here’s how to beat them.

Congratulations new graduate. You’ve earned your degree. You’ve made your family happy – really happy. Maybe you had a party. Maybe there were balloons and cake. It was exciting.

But, graduation is over.Some of your friends have moved away or back home. The abundance of campus activities is gone. You may be trying to adapt to a new job or to find one. You may be feeling a bit … well, down. So, what now?

Collegeaftermath.com offers some suggestions on how to beat the recent grad blues.

Discover life beyond campus
Whether you’re living in the town in which your college is located, moved to your hometown or relocated to another town, get to know the area. Discover life beyond college.

Stay connected
We’re fortunate to live in an age where technology allows us to stay connected. You don’t ever have to feel alone or isolated. Call or Skype your closest friends at least once a week.

Find a hobby
When you were in college you may not have had the time for a hobby because you were in class and studying.  (At least we hope you were.) Now, when you come home from work, you will likely have more free time. Fill it with a new hobby – read fiction, learn to play an instrument, join a community team,  volunteer.

Join young professionals’ organizations
This will give you the chance to meet young professionals like you. It’s also a great way to make friends and stay busy.

Do you have any suggestions? If so, please share them.
