What is it about January which makes everybody so depressed? It doesn’t seem to matter where you are in the world, whether you’re in Europe, Australia or the USA, the moment January hits, it’s like a curtain of misery sweeps the globe.
I almost feel bad for the month. If January was a person, I bet they’d feel extremely lonely knowing the whole world seems to dread your yearly comeback. January would undoubtedly be in therapy. To try and combat the January Blues, I’ve decided to take time out of my busy schedule (okay I was just playing some FoxyBingo during a rare hour alone), to list all the good things about January. Maybe this positivity will help inspire more of you to be happy in this month.
Attainable New Year’s Resolutions
One of the problems I think people have with January, is that they make unrealistic New Year’s resolutions. This time look at your list of resolutions and note down which ones can actually come true in the month of January. Doing it will give you a sense of accomplishment and cheer you up.
Only Three Months Until Easter
Easter starts in January according to the shops. They are already selling Easter chocolates. Instead of rolling your eyes at how early they are promoting the holiday, think of it as a three-month Easter extension and enjoy it.
A Clean Slate
A new year acts as a blank canvas for you to start afresh. January should be the most optimistic month, because very little can have gone wrong in that 31-day period. Last year is in the past; feel positive about the year ahead in January.
Did you know that January is full of super random national holidays? National Nothing Day is on January 16, and you can also enjoy National Bubble Bath Day, Dress Up Your Pet Day and National Handwriting Day. You may as well have fun with the knowledge of their existence.
