BEATING BLUE MONDAY + MY TIPS


January can be quite a difficult month after the holidays and just a lot of grey and dark days in general. On Monday the 21st it’s actually Blue Monday, which supposedly is the most depressing day of the year. I can relate because I remember a couple of years ago feeling super down on this so called Blue Monday. However I am determined to make my Monday less blue this year, so I thought it would be fun to share how I am beating the most depressing day of the year - or just any other day of the year where I feel a bit depressed, meh and down.


Do what your heart desires

The most important thing on Blue Monday is to feel happy and motivated. I could sit here and say that you should be doing this and that, to beat your Monday Blues, but that’s not really how it works. The most important thing to do on Blue Monday is to do something you want to do. If you want to lie in bed all day then do so, but if you would rather spend time with family or friends, then you should do that instead. Every person is different and gets energy and positivity from different situations.

I did wanted to share a few of the activities that always cheer me up whenever I feel meh and down, as they might give you a bit of inspiration on what you could do on Blue Monday.

Being with friends or family

One of my favourite things that always makes me happy is to be with friends or family. I love going out wit them, we like to go eat brunch or lunch or sometimes even go shopping. It doesn’t really matter what we do, because as much as I love being outside with them I could easily spend a day inside with them watching a film too. It’s always the company of other people that tend to cheer me up a lot when I feel a bit down.

Reading

And as much as I love spending time with friends and family, I can also be a complete loner. I love spending time with friends and family, but I also love being on my own and just do nothing at all. Sometimes when I feel a bit down, I actually hole myself up in my room and spend most of the day reading. I love reading on days like these because it’s so easy to distract yourself from feeling down. Reading always gives me an escape from reality. I usually end up reading lots when I feel a bit down.

Ordering takeout and binge watch series

Just as much as I love spending time alone reading, I also love binge watching new series. To make my day even better, I usually also order a pizza or something else and just enjoy a new series all day and night. Just like reading a book, watching a new series also feels like some sort of an escape from reality and your thoughts going into overdrive.



Cook dinner or go out for dinner with someone

If you’re also a bit like me and don’t necessarily like to go clubbing, like the true grandma I am, I also would say it’s also super nice to cook with someone or go for dinner at night. My cousin and I have always kind of done this as we both love cooking. It’s all about good food and good company when we are together. However, my friend recently started a full time job so we didn’t see each other as often as we normally would. Nowadays we tend to go out for dinner every two to three weeks, which is also so nice! We have so much fun and it’s once again all about good food and good company. I feel like since I am such a foodie too, I also think food can basically make any situation better.
