I hope this post finds you well.
I haven’t found time to write in a while. Things have felt rather up and down for me, as I’m sure it may for a lot of people over Christmas and New Year. You build up to have a lovely, cheerful family time over Christmas and on the day you are left bewildered and unsure that all the stress, spending and slaving over the turkey was even worth it. You expected to turn up to your family’s house and everyone be laughing, singing and sharing joy but instead your mum is upstairs crying that nobody is helping her and IT’S HER CHRISTMAS TOO and the turkey is too dry and half of the presents you give are shrugged off without much of a thank you.
Anyway, that sounds completely depressing and really I like to write positive posts.
After Christmas, naturally the January blues kick in. You’re heading off back to work feeling tired and fatter than ever before due to the inhumane amount of food and alcohol you have consumed over the festive period. The mornings are dark, it’s freezing cold and you’re now having to eat salad instead of cheese and crackers for lunch.
However, all is not lost!
If you’ve been suffering with the January blues on top of whatever else you may be going through, here are some very small things that may help you when you’re feeling low. They may or may not work for you, but it’s good to give things a try.
