5 little ways to beat the January Blues


 January can sometimes feel like nothing but doom and gloom. Bank accounts are looking rather empty after Christmas, the festive lights and decorations are long gone and it's  no longer acceptable to be drinking Bucks Fizz with your breakfast every morning. We all fall victim of the January Blues at some point, here are some little ways to help you through...




1. Book a holiday/ weekend away

If you haven't already planned your summer holiday or a weekend break, now would be the perfect time to do it. Having something to look forward to will make it a little easier to get out of bed on the miserable cold mornings! I know I definitely want to book something!

2. Go for a walk

There's nothing like a leisurely stroll around the countryside to clear the mind. It's one of my favourite things to do, getting all wrapped up and going on a walk in the fresh crisp air - away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, busy streets and noisy traffic. It's a great way to lift your mood.

3. Pamper yourself

Staying in on a cold night doesn't have be a bore, it's the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a pamper and give yourself time to rejuvenate after the busy festive season. After all, you just can't beat a nice hot bubble bath with all your favourite lotions and potions! You could even book a Spa Day for the ultimate pamper!

4. Hit the January sales

Why not treat yourself to a bit of retail therapy? Go and hunt for some bargains - no need to feel as guilty about spending when really you could end up making huge savings in the sales! 

5. Spend less time on your phone/social media

Spending less time on my phone is something I'm vowing to do this month. Instead of scrolling through endless social media, try reading a book or finding a new box set to watch. There's even a setting on IPhone's where you can actually set a limit on your screen time, just incase you get tempted! I know it can be a hard habit to break, especially these days, but definitely one worth breaking.



What are some of your favourite things to do to give yourself a little pick-me-up during the duller days of January? I'd love to hear!

  4. My birthday is at the end of January, so I never really struggle with the January blues, as I've always got something to look forward to. The point about booking a holiday/ weekend away is such a good point, as having something to look forward to is always a good thing xx

  5. Same here, the first thing I insist is to go for a walk for a short explore around the area. I have no idea why I can never skip that. Thanks for the tips and lovely pics too!
