Ways To Beat The January Blues
1 Saying Bye To Your Bed
There’s no harder goodbye than abandoning your duvet on a winter morning, but things get slightly easier when you know there’s food waiting for you downstairs. Do yourself a favour and prepare a delicious breakfast the night before. It’ll leave you more than happy to bounce out of bed.
2 Back-towork Blues
Heading back to the office after Christmas brings everyone back down to earth with a bump. And there aren’t even any biscuits on the desk now as everyone’s on a diet. Invest in a pretty new desk accessory, like a framed photo or a cute cactus. It might ease the pain (slightly).
3 Rainy Days
Let’s face it, opening the curtains to torrential rain is probably an accurate forecast for the next couple of months. Make this less miserable by treating yourself to a killer new coat. And maybe some new boots, too, just because.
4 Feeling Uninspired
The beginning of the year can often leave us feeling a bit lost, but taking some time out for yourself can really help with that. Take a step back from your social media accounts and try out a crafty new hobby. Practice some mindfulness and get all kinds of creative.
5 The Christmas Bloat
All the booze and Quality Street seem like a great idea at the time, but when January rolls around, we’re left dealing with some serious bloat. Never underestimate the power of getting outside for a walk in the fresh air – for exercise and also for clearing your mind. Bonus positive vibes if you’ve got a dog to take with you.
