    I personally like to get over the January Blues by spending some quality time with my two children. Reading books, getting cuddles, watching films or playing a game it always reminds me how lucky I really am! When that fails and they are driving me insane (it does happen!) A lovely hot bath with the door locked and music on so I can’t hear them outside while escaping from their Dad!

    During the Winter months I always take vitamin D supplements. I like to get out in the garden as much as possible fresh air and exercise.If you keep yourself occupied you don’t have time for the blues.

  20. Marina Parry Owen Reply

    I normally tend to have a big clearout in the New Year. The kids get so much at Christmas that I have to clear some of their old stuff to make room for their new things. I take their old stuff to our local charity shops so that makes me feel better because I’m decluttering and I’m also helping someone in the process.

  21. Tara Holtom Reply

    I tend to cope with the January blues by making sure I learn a new skill or hobby. This year I signed up to a ‘Brush Lettering’ workshop which is similar to modern calligraphy. It was so much fun and I made some new friends! Been practising my new skill for hours upon end. Its so relaxing to do and is keeping me occupied whilst the nights are cold and money is tight.

I always have a duvet day as well since 1 child goes to nursery 3 times a week and the eldest is in school. I think self care is so important. So I laze the day away in bed with coffee, netflix and books. I put on the diffuser with some essential oils ad imagine that I’m away somewhere, cosied up in a cabin.. ahh the only thing missing is a log fire :)
