Beat The January Blues
With the sun in short supply at the moment it’s hard to not to be affected by the lack of it’s warming glow.
January is often a funny time and with many plans having been scuppered over the festive period, it has been especially tough for a lot of people.
Whilst I am unable to make the sun miraculously appear in the sky, here are a few of my tips to help get some calm and beat the blues.
Meditation; a guided meditation even for as little as 10 minutes can really help you to slow down and refocus.
Exercise; whether hitting the gym or a gentle walk, they are both wonderful ways of getting those endorphins pumping.
Get into Nature; I love to get into nature either with Lucca (my gorgeous dog) or simply to walk along the river in Marlow. Take in the trees and birds; you may be surprised what you see.
Read; the therapeutic powers of devouring and being enveloped by a book are untold. A book can take you away from the everyday and on a mini-holiday.
Eat; comfort food doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. There’s nothing better than a piping hot bowl of homemade soup and a toasted slice of sourdough.
Relax; taking time to relax is so important. We race around and forget that we sometimes need to just do nothing.
Wear them; you know those items of clothing that you love and save for ‘best’? Wear them.
Love and light
