10 Ways to Beat The January Blues

main image

Today is ‘Blue Monday’, which is supposedly the most depressing day of the year where people generally feel quite down and blue.

So with that in mind, we thought it would be good to put together a positive post listing 10 ways to banish those January blues. We hope you like what we came up with and they make you smile… 🙂

#1. Online Shopping

We firmly believe that a bit of retail therapy (the best kind of therapy, if you ask us) can lift even the lowest of spirits – especially in January when everything is reduced. Treat yourself to a fab pair of shoes online in the comfort of your own home… Bliss!

#2. Have a pamper night

It’s super important that you give yourself some ‘me time’ this January. Now’s the time to make use of all those Christmas beauty/bath/skincare gift sets you received and unwind. Run yourself a bubble bath, put on a facemask, light some candles and relax! You deserve it. 😉

#3. Buy yourself some flowers

There’s something about flowers that can instantly put a smile on your face. They brighten up your home, which is always good a thing – don’t you think?

#4. Declutter! Declutter! Declutter!

It may be the last thing you want to do right now, but trust us – organising and clearing out your overflowing wardrobe is SO satisfying. Treat your wardrobe like a capsule collection. Throw out anything you haven’t worn in a year and keep those staple signature pieces that can be mixed and matched perfectly for season after season.

#5. Get some fresh air

There’s no denying that a good walk can do wonders for clearing your mind and boosting your mood. Even if it’s really cold outside, wrap up and go for a stroll on your own to refresh your brain.

#6. Write a list of all the things you’re grateful for

Take some time, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing to put together a gratitude list. By focusing on the things that we’re grateful for it can make you more appreciative of everything and everyone around you and help give you more of a positive outlook on life.

#7. Everything thing is better with a (fake) tan

I don’t know about you, but fake tan is definitely one of the go-to products I like to apply when I’m feeling a bit ‘meh’. I feel it makes me look like I have more of a healthy-looking glow even without any make up. Exfoliate your skin and apply a fresh layer of tan and it will do wonders to your confidence – I definitely feel it does anyway!

#8. Plan a weekend away

Who doesn’t like to have something to look forward to? Whether you book a city break or a sun holiday, it’s sure to give you that extra boost on days when you’re feeling down.

#9. Take a break from social media

Ok, we know this is a difficult one for some people but it’s actually healthy to take a break from your phone and social media every now and then. Turn off your phone and get sucked into a movie or start that book you’ve been meaning to read

#10. Baking is good for the soul
