Ah, the January blues…
Nothing quite like the feeling of finding those jeans a little tighter, the bank account depleted and freezing your butt off as you head out to work in the pitch black.
Does any of this sound a little bit too familiar?
Fear not, here are some little tips to make those blues melt away.
Plan a break away:
Okay, guilty as charged. Hubster and I have booked a holiday for March and I am so excited!! There is nothing more satisfying than marking each week off on the calendar and a tiny bit of bragging to work colleagues and friends. Plus, the countdown can be one of the most exciting parts! woohoo!
Ditch the Junk:
I blitzed my dressing room just before going back to work and it felt so so good. It’s one of those tasks that I admit to constantly putting off, as it’s one of those situations where it gets a lot worse before it gets better. However my local charity shop was glad of the donation. Remember, tidy home tidy mind!
New Years Resolutions:
‘You are never to old to set a new goal or dream a new dream’ C.S Lewis.
Setting yourself simple goals is a great help to motivate you. It can be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the lift, partaking in a Dryathalon or finally enrolling on that course. Do it!
It’s time to break out those LUSH bath bombs that were in your Christmas stocking. Over the festive period of visiting family and friends, partying and lets face it…general mayhem, it’s important to have some time just for you. Whether it’s a relaxing bath, curling up with a good book or booking in for a mani-pedi. Go on, you’ve earned it.
Blow Away the Cobwebs:
One of my favourite (and yet simplest) things to do in January are walks at the seaside. I find the sea air refreshing and the crashing waves very therapeutic. When I get back it feels like everything is just that little bit clearer. Walking or any form of exercise is one of the most underused and underrated antidepressants. Grab your coat, mittens and pompom hat and off you go!
