Don’t let Blue Monday get you down
Monday, January 21st, 2019 | Blog
Over the past few years, the third Monday of January has been given the title of ‘Blue Monday’. It has been labelled as the most depressing day of the year - bills start to pile up and you really start to notice the bad weather. Despite this title, you definitely shouldn’t let it have an impact on your health and wellbeing.
Don’t let the days of the week change your psychological mindset. Busy lives and stressful schedules can trigger these negative feelings any day, at any time of year. It is important to try and not get too overwhelmed by commitments and to try and keep yourself calm in possibly stressful situations.
Worried about Blue Monday and need some ideas on how to combat the symptoms? Take a look at these tips and have a happy January.
Stay off social media
In general, social media can have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing. Particularly if we spend too much time on it, we can start to compare ourselves to others, and ironically become less sociable. The less time you have to be exposed to the phrase ‘Blue Monday’ the less you are likely to let it have a negative impact on your day.
Random acts of kindness
Everyone appreciates kindness. As well as making others feel good, it can also make you to feel better too. People like a compliment and you could even do a coffee round in your office to brighten everyone’s day.
Food can make the worst day feel that little bit better. Why not join your colleagues for a breakfast meeting to discuss productivity and how you can achieve what you want to in January!
Mindfulness can help you to avoid stress and remain calm. A day such as Blue Monday is the perfect opportunity for reflection and self-improvement.
