My Top 3 Tips to Beat the 'January Blues'

I don't know about you, but this year I've really felt the January Blues! It can be the most miserable month of the year with Christmas seeming a distant memory thats left you broke and really feeling January's awful weather. Leaving home to go back to Dance School was harder than ever this January and so I thought I'd share with you how I got through my January Blues this year!

1. Plan something fun!

One of the reasons why January can be so depressing is because there's nothing to look forward to; it's not like December where the build up to Christmas keeps you constantly excited. Therefore, one of my biggest tips is to plan something fun. 

It doesn't have to be expensive, if your like me then Christmas will have left you broke. So it's probably better if it's not! It just needs to be something that you will look forward to throughout the gloomiest month of the year.

The thing I looked forward to this month was a trip to London! My friend Tabitha and I decided to book a trip to see Wicked in the West End to celebrate her birthday (even though it was a couple of months ago!). We went yesterday and I will have a post about our day in London up on Wednesday, so check back (at 7pm) to see what we got up to; it really was a fun filled day!

2. Pamper yourself

One of the best things to do when you're feeling down is to pamper yourself with all your favourite things. Pampering yourself never fails to brighten up your mood; for me this month, it has been: to take a hot bubble bath with my favourite Lush products, use face masks and paint my nails.  
My favourite Lush Bath Product this month has been the Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb

3. Watch funny movies or TV shows

My last tip is to have an evening watching either your favourite comedy movies or TV shows. Grab your favourite snacks (mine is 100% chocolate) and spend your evening laughing. Trust me, it helps so so much to sit and giggle because you forget about pretty much anything that is bringing you down after the excitement of Christmas.

I hope you enjoyed reading my top three tips to beat the January Blues and I really hope they help you too! Let me know if there is anything important that you do that I've missed off my list. Thank you for reading,

Let's keep in touch
