Beat the Blues This Blue Monday with our Cheerful Tips
January brings the post-Christmas lull and cold weather with no festive sparkles to cheer us up, so it’s no surprise that Blue Monday - the most depressing day of the year - is this month.
If you’re feeling down on this gloomy day, January 17th, beat the blues with our cheerful tips!
Have a ‘Brew Monday’ Instead
Savour the flavour of a homemade, professional-style coffee with the Salter Espressimo Barista-style Coffee Machine. This campaign by the Samaritans is reminding everyone to reach out for a cuppa and a catch-up with the people they care about - the perfect recipe for brightening up those blues.
Turn up the Tunes
Upbeat music always lifts the mood, so whether you’re with a friend or on your own, put on your favourite tunes with the Majority Girton DAB Radio or Philips Folding Noise-isolating Headphones with Mic.
Bake (or Blend) the Blues Away
While the music’s playing, bake the blues away with the Prochef 5L Stand Mixer and enjoy a dopamine hit when you tuck into your masterpiece! If you’d rather have a health kick than a sugar rush, pack some veg, fruit, nuts and seeds into this Salter 1200W Nutri Pro Blender.
Get Your Heart Pumping
Exercise is renowned for releasing endorphins, so go out for a run or head to the gym. The MIXX F3 Round Smart Watch will track your heart rate and blood pressure so you can keep an eye on your health and fitness levels.
Let Nature Nurture You
Spending time in nature is another way of boosting your mood, and what easier way to do that than stepping into your garden? Prepare your plants for the upcoming spring with the Wilkinson Sword Mini Saw and Holster and get some weeding done with the Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel Trowel. If the weather’s not on your side, entice birds into your garden with some Johnston and Jeff Wild Bird Seed and this gorgeous Flamboya Hummingbird Glass Bird Bath , and watch them frolick from your window.
