Beat The January Blues

Winter is still here--how do we keep our chins up?

The days are short and the temperature is low. Luckily, from November on wards we have Christmas and New Year to look forward to. We can spend time at home watching movies on our theater system and cook comfort food with our loved ones to keep out the cold. However, after the festive period is over, we can look forward to nothing but 2 solid months of continued dark winter misery. This is the dreaded “January Blues” that many of us face. So this week, to help you cope a little bit, we’ve got 3 tips on how to beat the January blues.

  1. Get Outside

    Exposure to daylight is good for us, and we often become depressed in darker months due to our limited sunlight exposure. Those of you lucky enough to live in the southern states might still be able to enjoy your theater systems outdoors! Our brains love to be in sunlight, and it helps to regulate our sleep cycles properly. So at lunch, make sure you get yourself outside and get as much daylight as you can while it lasts! It’s good for you (and will certainly make you more productive)!

  2. Try Something New

    Comfort zones are dangerous things, as they cause us to stagnate and cease development. So why not welcome in the New Year with some new hobbies or activities? Push the boat out, per se, and see what you like. You might surprise yourself!

  3. Plan a Holiday

    You know what’s great? Having something to look forward to. Having something to look forward to fills our day-to-day lives with a sense of purpose, excitement, and joy. Booking a holiday is the perfect example.  If our miserable weather has got you down in the dumps, why not book a holiday to a tropical paradise where the sun is shining and skies are bright blue! Scientists say that simply looking forward to a sunny getaway is enough to keep your endorphins (pleasure hormones) flowing strong. An exciting trip is often the perfect remedy to get you through January’s miserable trudge. I know I’ll be booking something…

We hope these hints and tips will keep you in good cheer this January. If there’s one thing you should remember it’s this: your happiness is down to you. If you commit yourself to being unhappy this month, you will be. If you do something about the January blues, you can and will get yourself through it positively and happily!
