PEOPLE living and working in the Balearic Islands are amongst those in Spain who suffer most from the so-called “post-holiday blues” syndrome.
Research carried out by Human Resources specialists, Randstad involved interviews with 1'593 people right across the country and revealed that 6 in every 10 Spaniards claim to suffer from the condition. Coming top alongside the Balearics were the regions of La Rioja, Madrid and Catalonia. At the other end of the scale, people who least “got the blues” lived in Castilla-La Mancha, Cantabria and Murcia. The study showed that it was the working population of the Balearics who were most prone with 80 percent of those interviewed acknowledging they were negatively affected after holiday periods - a higher percentage than others in the top group. Andalucians meanwhile are one of the regional populations which take the longest period of time to recover from post-holiday blues, as 34 percent need 2 or 3 days to feel “normal” again, and 9 percent said they needed a week. In Aragon, 28 percent of interviewees said they needed a full day back at work to feel acclimatised once more and in the Canary Islands where 53 percent of people claimed to be sufferers, 36 percent of this figure said they had to have 2 or 3 days back in the work place to feel readjusted.
