It’s the first month of a brand-new year. For some, this means new beginnings and another chance to make it ‘your year’. For others January feels like a whole month of the Sunday scaries. Especially on a day that has been nationally declared as the saddest day of the year…Blue Monday. Just because it’s the feels like the fifth Monday of January, when the weather is cold, days are short, the mood is running low, this doesn’t mean everything needs to be miserable! Yes, it may not be the best Monday you’ll have, but there are so many things you can do to turn it around.
