According to scientists, January 16th was the most depressing day of the year. So why do we all feel so glum? Because it’s still a week till pay day (seriously?!), 2 months till the clocks go forward and at least 6 months until the 2 week patch of hazy sunshine that constitutes to what we, Brits, call ‘Summer’. But stop! Before you pack your bags or pen your suicide note, here are a few little ideas to help you get through till the end of the month:
Buy yourself some flowers
Thanks to the strangely warm winter, daffodils are in bloom early this year. Available from most supermarkets for around £1, these hardy blooms will last a week, and brighten up both your room and your spirit.
Have a duvet day
A quiet Saturday is only boring when it’s enforced upon you by your bank account. Why not take matters into your own hands and invite a couple of friends round. Simple food, cheesy films and cheap wine. Easy ingredients for a great night.
All that partying has no doubt taken its toll on you, so why not pay yourself a bit of attention? Everyone has a shelf of half empty beauty products, so start using them. Do a facemask, slap in a deep conditioner and give yourself a proper mani-pedi. Not only will you look better, but you’ll feel better, and you’ll be ready for February!
