Eight Ways to Beat the January Blues
This was one of my new years resolutions and it really does make me feel much cheerier, as a reformed mono-chrome dresser.
I really need to do this, at the moment we have instax photos taped on our kitchen units but we haven’t had “proper” photos printed in ages, but it always makes me feel good when we do. Otherwise they seem destined to relinquish on some forgotten hard drive.
My mum took me to see Matilda recently – to be honest I didn’t really fancy it and thought I’d be bored but I was SO WRONG. It was excellent and put a smile on my face for days. Really tempted to buy the CD…
I’m going to Blogcademy this weekend which is my concession to learning, but also I’ve been pointed in the direction of Babbel, free language apps which I love the idea of. Learning new things picks up my mood and gets my brain working a little, which can’t be bad.
I’m hopelessly disorganised, and my laundry pile is almost preventing us from getting through the bedroom door, so when I finally manage to conquer even the smallest organisational task it boosts my mood (and my productivity!)
The more complicated the better, one of those recipes that you have to buy every single obscure ingredient as you have none in your cupboard. Try and have someone on hand to wash up though, I find that puts a downer on the whole culinary experience.
We’ve just watched every Harry Potter movie in the space of a week. I am not exaggerating when I say I’ve been dreaming about Snape. I bloody love Snape.
Or a postcard… to someone you love to pieces but don’t talk to often. It will make you happy and in turn no-one can help but smile when they receive un-solicited friendly mail.
I feel cheerier just thinking about half of those things, so here’s hoping they work!
