Have you made any New Year resolutions? And if you have, how are they going? The onset of a New Year is often a time to reflect on the previous year and to look back at both the good and the bad times. It’s also a time to look to the future and many people make resolutions based on things that they would like to change about their lives. However, January for many people can be a difficult time as the fun, partying and perhaps excesses of the festivities are over and it’s time to get back to work and life’s routine.
It’s Normal To Feel A Little Blue
Calm Therapy, based in Eastbourne looks at ways to lift your mood. Christmas and New Year are buzzy vibrant times with often lots going on and lots of friends and family around, so it’s quite natural for your mood to dip as winter drags on and spring seems an incredibly long way away. The best thing is to actually accept that these January blues are normal and lots of people are feeling like you do. It really is the body’s natural response to the cold and darker months of winter, so it’s important that when there is daylight, you make the most of it. If you are working, make sure you take a lunch break and go outside if possible and take in the fresh air.
Things To Do To Beat Those January Blues
- Get as much daylight as possible
- Exercise regularly
- Take up a hobby/do something new
- Connect with people
- Eat healthily
- Take time out for you
- Create a work/life balance
Regular Exercise And A Healthy Diet
Exercising regularly is a great way to improve your health and wellbeing and to adjust your mood. This doesn’t actually mean going to the gym or running miles, as a brisk walk will work wonders. Consider your diet carefully as your mood will certainly improve by eating fruit, vegetables, pulses, fish and nuts and it’s a good idea to avoid junk food and foods that contain too much sugar.
Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment to promote better health and wellbeing and it is completely tailored to your requirements. It helps to restore the natural balance to your body and is about your diet and digestion, skincare, and anxiety or stress levels. Most people find it a way to relax and a way to help deal with the stresses and strains of everyday life. Reflexology really is a great way of making time for you, and for beating the January blues and clearing the mind.
Remember Spring Is Just Around The Corner!
