The January blues are something that many of us feel at this time of the year. With the joy of Christmas behind us, it feels a bit like coming back to reality with a crash – and this January we also have the covid restrictions to contend with so for many of us the ways that we would normally cope are very limited.
Despite this, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and the promise of a return to normal life by the summer – but first we must get through the winter and endure the dark cold months as well as the miserable news that goes with it.
If you are finding that you are struggling mentally, then you should speak to a doctor, but here are a few things that may help you during these uncertain times…
Exercise – This is not only a good way to make sure that you have good physical health but is also an important way to help your mental health. Exercise releases the feel-good chemicals of the brain called endorphins, so it is a great way to give your mood a boost!
Brighten your day – Making time for yourself and treating yourself to things is a good way to make sure that you have pleasure in your life – whether you are looking forward to better times and treating yourself to Superdry menswear from EJ Menswear, or having a long hot soak in the bath, it is important to make sure that you take time for you.
