Ways To Beat The Jan­uary Blues

Look (UK) - - FIT -

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.
