Beat the January Blues: How we’re helping you get through January 

It’s the first month of a brand-new year. For some, this means new beginnings, a fresh start and another chance to make it ‘your year’, but for others January brings an overwhelming sense of doom. With dark nights, covid cases on the increase and bank balances on the decrease, it can be difficult to stay positive during the dreaded January.  

But fear not because we’re here with our top tips to help you get through the month and soon it’ll be spring before you know it! 

Get moving

Get Moving

After a month-long binge on mince pies and mulled wine, it can feel like a struggle to get your body moving again. Despite the struggle, getting your body going again can be one of the best ways to flip that frown upside down and get back on track for the New Year.  

No matter how old or fit you are, exercise has always been proven to help your physical and mental health. So, what better way to beat those January Blues than by getting your body moving?

Bring your resolutions to life

Bring your resolutions to life

One of the key parts of January is making a list of New Year’s Resolutions. Whether you want to use 2022 to get in shape, pick up a new hobby or even completely transform yourself, it’s good to get focused on the things you want for the New Year.  

Start by making a list of all the things you’re aspiring to in 2022, they can be as abstract or as wild as you want. Once you’ve made your list, try and work out how you can achieve each of your resolutions and work towards them throughout January. Remember, having things to work towards is a great way to help you get through tough winter months.

Set yourself goals

Set yourself goals

January is a long month and don’t we all know it! To help it go along the way a little quicker, why not make some little goals? Now, these goals don’t need to be anything major, just small, quick wins to help you get focused on yourself and speed January along the way. These goals can be anything from walking 10,000 steps a day, to treating yourself to a coffee during your lunch hour. Whatever you need to do to get through the day, week and month, do it.  

Take some time for you

Take some time for you

One of the small luxuries of having a quieter month in January is that you have a lot more time for yourself. Spending some time alone with yourself and for yourself is a great way to refocus this January. Perhaps you pick up that book you’ve been meaning to get through or maybe you take up a new hobby, like cooking or running.
