With the twinkling Christmas lights being packed away for another year, many people can start to feel a little down during the first two months of the year. Christmas is behind us and as well as going back to reality and facing the grey skies of January, this year we also have the global pandemic to contend with as well.
This means that many things that we do to make ourselves feel a little more cheerful during these months are not things that we can do at the moment, so it can be quite overwhelming for many.
But there is hope on the horizon, and things will hopefully be a lot brighter by summer, both with the weather and with the rollout of the vaccines, which have already begun and are helping in the fight against the virus.
If you are feeling a little low in terms of mood, it is important to take care of yourself and make sure that you find some time for you. Read a good book, have a long bath or even treat yourself to some new clothing like this Superdry menswear from EJ Menswear which you can look forward to wearing out and about when life starts to return to normal.
Getting active is also something that can help to stave off low mood, and a long country walk whilst being wrapped up warm is a great thing to do. If you prefer, there are plenty of online exercise classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home too.
