after a long holiday like Golden Week and after environments have
been changed suddenly.

environments, but after a month goes by people gradually start to get
used to things, and their fatigue takes the form of stress. And there
are also people find themselves disappointed with the gap between
their cherished ideals and their present reality.
what kind of people are most susceptible to this condition ? You
perfectionists, precise people and serious-minded people beware !
What methods do you use to relieve stress ? Please try to find your
own ways to reduce your daily stress levels in order to avoid getting
Go Gatsu Byou.
