Believe it or not, the outdoors is good for you, ladies. We know the days are short, it’s cold and the weather isn’t exactly top tier, but daylight will help you feel revitalised. Plus, it helps to regulate your sleep cycle. So, if you’re feeling low in January, escape to Mother Nature and let her take care of you.
One way of beating the January Blues is by staying in touch with your Female Family. As weird as things are, having regular Zooms and Facetimes with your besties can help you feel a lot better, all whilst staying connected. Plus, who doesn’t love a good old chit-chat?
We’ve all got caught up in the cycle of setting unrealistic New Year’s expectations at some point. Unrealistic expectations set you up to fail and we want 2021 to be full of positivity, not sadness. Don't promise yourself you'll go on an extreme diet or go to the gym every day of the week (besides, you can treat yourself to a full English from time to time). Set some realistic goals that will help you glow from within and achieve your dreams!
Baking is enough to make anyone feel better, so if you’re stuck at home and you’re desperate for a pick me up, get your baking socks on. Plus, it gives you an excuse to indulge and you can deliver alllll the baked goods to your Female Family to put a smile on their faces too.
Staying in your comfort zone is all well and good but sometimes it’s nice to do something else for a change! Welcome the new year with some new hobbies and activities, whether it’s reading, writing, hiking, baking or even painting. Do something creative that will leave you feeling satisfied this January and your besties can join in too! Zoom backgrounds at the ready.
If you’re concerned about money, health or your career, try and find ways to better yourself this coming year. Whether it’s eating less processed foods or taking on more responsibilities at work, there is always something you can do to improve. Try to not compare yourself to other people, either because that just leads to even more self-doubt. We are all unique and we all manifest things differently at different stages of our lives and besides, you're pretty fabulous as it is. Embrace it, girl.
This month, be kind to yourself, girls. Kick back, relax and be the best version of you possible. You can read more tips on practicing self care here so you can put all your worries and responsibilities to the side for a little while. It's time you enjoyed a little you time.
So, now you know how to survive the January Blues, don’t let this month get you down. It’s a new year, after all!
FYI: we'll also be sharing handfuls of positive affirmations and words of wisdom throughout January so you can kick off 2021 with non-stop positivity. You deserve to #LightUpWithLounge and your Female Family does too.
For someone you love or simply for you - because girl, you deserve it.
