January is almost over (Thank goodness!), but if you need some ideas to help you survive the last few days of this somewhat depressing month then we’ve got some suggestions for you!
1. Get Hygge
Pronounced hue-guh, Hygge is a Danish concept related to acknowledging feelings of cosiness. The word Hygge can be used to describe any feeling or moment which is cosy, charming, special or invokes a sense of wellbeing*. This can be anything from relaxing in front of a fire, lighting a few candles, or enjoying a delicious meal with friends. So on that basis, why not snuggle up on the sofa with a blanket and your favourite book and wait for January to end!?
2. Socialise with friends
Ok, everybody is still broke and the strong willed among us are persisting with this dry January business, but that doesn’t mean we need to be social hermits. If you don’t fancy going out, why not invite some friends over for a home cooked meal and a games night? Laughter is food for the soul remember.
3. Go to a Yoga class
It’s still cold and dark, so let’s face it the thought of a run or heading to the gym can be less than appealing and funnily enough that motivation we all felt on January 1st is dwindling fast. Yoga is a kinder form of exercise, good for both body and mind it’s a great way to beat those January blues. Can’t afford it we hear you cry? Some places will offer free classes or introductory offers in January so there really is no excuse.
4. Consider taking a probiotic supplement
Links between your gut health and your mood are being increasingly uncovered, so whilst January may just simply be depressing in itself, it’s also worth taking a probiotic supplement to ensure your gut microbiome is diverse and healthy. Try our Super Smoothies, available at www.b-fresh.co.uk.
5. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep
If everybody is still hibernating it’s the perfect chance to catch up on some much needed sleep. Rather than staying up late watching Netflix, try and enforce an hour at least of no screens before bed to help you relax. Check out apps such as Sleepcycle which analyse your sleep, helping you to wake up at the optimum time for feeling fresh.
