Okay, I know that January is nearly over but I think the January blues always drag into February. They certainly do for me anyway.
The weather is still cold and grey and miserable. Christmas seems like a long time ago and Spring hasn’t reared its beautiful head yet.
At this time of year, we all need a little pick me up. So these are my top 3 ways to beat the January blues.
3 ways to beat the January blues
Get out for a walk
When the weather is cold it is always tempting to hibernate. But instead, we like to wrap up warm and get some fresh air. Whether it is a stroll around our local wood or a bracing walk along the beach, getting out and about always makes me feel better. We’ve had some of our best family days out during the winter months.
Escape with some movies
One of my favourite things to do is to snuggle up on the sofa and escape with a movie. What could be better than to lose yourself in a great fantasy or science fiction film? We’ve been watching some fab films recently including Gravity, Pacific Rim and Christopher Nolan’s Inception. And Mr H and I are looking forward to settling down with a glass of wine and some popcorn and immersing ourselves in the world of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies; Jupiter Ascending and 300 Rise of an Empire. You too can escape from the January blues by buying all these great films.
Get an early night
It may sound sad but one of my favourite things on a dark and cold night is to get to bed early. I love to tuck myself up in bed with a good book and a cup of decaf tea. It may not be rock ‘n’ roll but it makes me happy.
Do you have any tips for surviving the January blues?
