The most depressing day of the year, the 15th of January is fast approaching. But thanks to the helpful soul who calculated what must have been some pretty gloomy data, we can be ready for it! There are lots of things you can do on January 15th to escape the blues, and we’re sharing our favourite ideas today.
Treat yourself to a facial
A relaxing, rejuvenating SkinBase Facial is guaranteed to cheer you up. Our facials combine indulgence with seriously effective skincare technologies to ensure you leave looking, and feeling, fantastic. And thanks to our expert therapists, whichever treatment you choose, rest assured your skin’s needs are in the best hands. Just lie back and relax.
Get those happy hormones working by watching your favourite funny film, going to a comedy night, or setting a dinner date with a friend who always has you in stitches. Laughter can lift your mood immediately and has long-term health benefits too!
Watching a video by a motivational or inspirational speaker can do wonders for your mood, self-esteem and outlook on life. Search Youtube for some videos, we love Les Brown, whose videos will leave you feeling like you can take on the world – not just Blue Monday!
One reason Blue Monday falls when it does is that lack of daylight is strongly linked to low moods. By the time we get to January it’s been dark a lot. Spend as much time in daylight as possible, if you can get some exercise while you do it, even better!
Have a cosy night in
A quiet, cosy evening is the perfect way to de-stress when it’s cold and miserable outside. Cook your favourite dinner, light a nice candle and curl up on the sofa under a blanket, with your favourite film or book.
Here’s to a great Monday, not a Blue one!
