Monday Blues

I found out this morning that today is considered to be the "saddest" day of the year. This apparently is caused by the festive season being well and truly over, our lack of sunlight most days and the fact that we all spent a little too much money around Christmas. When my friend emailed me with this information I started to think of a few reasons to not be sad, but instead to be happy. So here are a few of my thoughts to help stay cheery throughout January

1 - Get Organised! After Christmas the house can be full of lots of new things, this can sometimes end in the house being less than tidy, shall we say? Things can seem cluttered and when the house is cluttered and unorganised it can make life seem cluttered and unorganised. January is a good time to have a clear out of any old things you no longer want or need. It is also a great way to make space when you thought you had none :)

2 - Make Plans! Christmas and New Year is such a crazy time and when it's all over it can feel quite sad, so making plans for the year ahead can be exciting and give you something to look forward too. It doesn't need to be a big holiday or anything as extravagant as that, it can be something as simple as dinner with friends.

3 - Relax! The end of the year can be such a busy time for everyone, January is the perfect time to relax. Most of us are given bath or body treats for Christmas so make the most of your spare time and try them out. Also use up any products you have at home, more than likely if you have a clear out you will come across something you completely forgot you had...or at least I know that I have.

4 - Cooking! January isn't the best month for outdoor activities, so finding interesting things to do at home can stop you feeling sad. If you enjoy cooking or baking, trying out new recipes can be really good fun, especially if you were given any new cook books or new toys for your kitchen for Christmas :)

So there is no need to feel down in January, there are so many little things you can do at home to put a smile on your face. And most of them don't need to cost a penny, and after Christmas that can only be a god thing. So happy Monday everyone, I hope nobody is being effected by the Monday Blues.

What little things do you do to keep up your spirits?

    These are great ways to stay cheery! I'm with you on keeping organised! :D

  2. I'm glad too, thank you fixing it. I'm not really sure what has happened but I'm glad it is sorted :)
