    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!

    Ok I do take Vitamin D all year round which is helpful & I go to the Dog park every day with biscuits for them, monkey nuts for the squirrels & bird seed for the birdies! It’s hard to be Blue with all my doggy friends who come bounding up to me for their daily treat!
    ♡Stacey your big beautiful smile literally made me smile♡

    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.

    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.

  20. January 28, 2018 / 10:22 pm

    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’m gentle to myself- a few small treats and a period of post-christmas ‘hibernation’.
    Lots of being cosy under a soft blanket, curled up with a good book. Hot chocolate (or leftover festive mulled wine!), comfort food and chunky knitwear!

  33. January 28, 2018 / 9:23 pm

    I put away all the Christmas decorations, then bring out the vases, fill them with fresh flowers and count down the days till spring.

    By indulging myself – I buy myself some good rum, a few new books, maybe a DVD or two, and then do whatever I want to each evening and on the weekends. I try not to make plans, so that I can just listen to what my body and mind want, and do that instead :)

    We make sure we are out and active every weekend. We look for new places to walk with the kids and dog (that are free!) and then treat ourselves to hot chocoaltes and a movie at home after when we are all tired out. The blast of fresh air makes all the difference!

    For me, the main source of January Blues is waking up when it’s still dark, so I adjust my plans and try to lie in until after dawn.

  299. Evelyn Johnston

  302. Tracey Belcher
    January 27, 2018 / 12:37 pm

    An early new year clean up – de clutter – always makes me feel better ready for the spring – who wants to do all that cleaning in the spring when we could be outside !

  303. Vicky Robinson
    January 27, 2018 / 12:20 pm

    I have a beautiful new daughter who is cheering me up through the long dark Winter days. I just hang on to the thought that we are at the end of Jan, only Feb to get through which is really short and by March Spring is just so close with warmer, brighter, longer days :-) I can’t wait for Spring :-)

  304. Debi Gillard
    January 27, 2018 / 12:15 pm

    I have been really lucky and not really had the “january blues’ this year. I’m lucky I have quite a bit to look forward to. I have a big birthday this year and am determined to ram as much as I can into the year.

  336. Emma H

    I don’t start my resolutions until February when it starts getting lighter. I buy reduced Xmas food so I have plenty of treats and I buy a new calendar and mark down all the films and books and shows that are coming out so I know there are lots of nice things to look forward to in the year.

  337. Yvonne Dimbleby

    January is my worst month. It feels so long and dreary! I try to eat well and drink less to compensate for Christmas overindulgence! I also plant spring tubs as it is nice to watch them grow and herald the spring. I also HAVE to buy daffodils as soon as they are in the shops…

    I make myself go for a nice quiet walk in the countryside everyday, im lucky to have it on my doorstep but you can easily take it for granted. But January is a great time to get some fresh air after all the visits stuck inside and all the food we eat. Clear the mind and get fit!

  428. KarenH
    January 26, 2018 / 7:16 pm

  434. Fiona King
    January 26, 2018 / 6:58 pm

    I don’t cope with it very well because I hate January but I try to make the best of it by doing something different every other weekend, such as go on a day trip, try a different restaurant and go for long walks to make the most of the daylight

    I try to get out more with the dog for long walks and try to soak up the sun since its en in short supply over the winter. 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 :)

    I been remember that Winter is just one of the four seasons. In fact, in January, the signs of Spring are already evident – the days are slightly longer, birds are singing more loudly, buds are appearing on the trees and daffodils are coming out.

    I cope by storing away the festive bedding and putting freshly pressed, spring-like duvet cover and pillow cases. I also like to do small things like open a new bar of French Lavender soap, and light some fragrant candles to make it all a bit more cheerful. This year I have begun knitting a project for Spring too.

  681. Simon C
    January 21, 2018 / 11:26 am

    Well firstly “cope” would probably be an exaggeration. I absolutely hate the cold and snow/ice prevents me from leaving the house due to my mobility issues, so it’s a very hybernate-ish month for me. I up my vitamins, try to plan for holidays and day trips and set up goals for the year, to give me something to focus on.
