January blues.........

January blues.........

Jan 22, 2022

January is most certainly never referred to as anyone's favourite month. Here in the UK the weather is cold, wet and drab and it seems like a long time until the light and warmth of the spring will begin to show itself in April/May. The Christmas festivities are a long way in the rear view mirror and life seems rather monochrome and devoid of interest.

I have chosen to reject the post-Xmas blues this year and have been doing my best to stay fully engaged and active. I have been running a lot lately (I have even entered a local half marathon in MArch) and this has really helped in managing both my body and my mind. Whilst I really do not enjoy running very much (well, I am about to celebrate my 52nd birthday in a few short weeks), I do greatly enjoy the sense of achievement and wellbeing that follows a run, which can usually last for a few days.

Even if running is not your thing, perhaps go for a walk in the countryside or a local park. Getting outdoors and breathing fresh air is such a boost for the mind when life a not terribly full of many joyous activities to undertake.

Have a great week and try and enjoy every minute!
