Calling anyone out there who isn't going back to their hometown (balik kampung) for the festive holidays. Hello? Are you the one? Welcome to the apocalypse of your mindscape - in a world where it seems like you're the only one not heading home for the festive season, where everyone else turned to mindless, brain-eating zombies in their hurried exodus heading back home. You'd rather stay in the city wherever you are. You may have got stuck in the city because the bus tickets are all finished - or maybe you're subconsciously letting this to happen so you can stay back in the city. Or you might have bad relationships with your family or estranged. Human beings are not all kind and forgiving, but you have to be forgiving of yourself and spare yourself from the blues. Not everyone is blessed with good family support, but that doesn't mean they're not blessed in other ways. You are not alone - married couples, single boys and girls, old daddies, cougars, movie stars like Jude Law (and Kris Law) experienced it too! Don't feel down or negative when others are heading back to their families and you're here alone. There must be a valid reason why you choose not to go back this festive season. The reason could be that you need some time away from others so you can grow as a person. Hey, that's perfectly valid and important too! Below are 3 easy tips you can do right now to turn your blues into meaningful growth:

1. Be thankful
This is the most wonderful time of the year. Think about it.The city is nearly and sometimes completely forsaken! You are free to wander anywhere without the fear of congestion or rush. I know for certain I would take advantage of this time to go everywhere I've always wanted to go in the city. The zombies are all gone! You can now sit back, take a few moments or as long as you want to just enjoy the serenity you don't always get living in the concrete jungle. Don't ever feel guilty that you didn't get to see your "loved ones" - who knows you might not even be missed by any of them. So just take your time...and be thankful that the whole city is yours!

2. Get productive
I know people who are inspiring and creative as opposed to others who behaves like mindless, complaining zombies going back home, just to fit in the crowd. Well, you're not one of them! You see an opportunity to get creative when others see only long, tiring journey in the bus or airplane. You can get productive NOW - start a project to clean your house or learn a new skill!

You can even earn some extra income during the festive season - I know certain call centre operators earned double in their hourly pay during this time. You might even take this festive holidays to save money, stay in and just watch movies at home or read books that you've left in the bookshelves collecting dust. Now's the best time to clear them off once and for all!

3. Contemplate and Rejuvenate
It is always in solidarity one learns about oneself more than when you're married or living with a spouse or family.That is because when you have others around you, your mind is occupied about them and not focused on yourself. What do I want to achieve in my life? Am I really happy now? A different perspective in life may suddenly hit you when you are not heading back to your hometown because you got so much time to be alone - and that's a good thing! Contemplate on your life and you may discover that you didn't commit as much as you should to your personal work-out or sticking to your plan in losing weight. I know I've lost 2 kilos just from sticking to my plan of workout. Or you may have not contacted a friend for so long, you simply need to pick up the phone and call. Remember life is short, so take your time slowly and enjoy. A cockroach lives longer than you. If you have a religion, use this time to pray and get connected with your faith again.
