Beat The January Blues & Keep The Positive Vibes Rolling!
Nothing like a workout to get the serotonin flowing! A walk, a run, a yoga session or DVD class. There is no need to go out in the bad weather, hit your You Tube app and just find yourself a class or get a fitness DVD to make a start. You don't have to go all out straight away, it is best to start gradually and build up...plus, always check with the Dr first be before starting something new.
2. Self Love
We all need a dose of this, lets be honest! It is important to take out the time to give yourself some care. This can be by keeping up with your beauty or preening regime or relaxing in a bath with your favourite fizz! Pampering yourself a little is definitely the key to a girl's confidence and better mental health. Try and put your worries and responsibilities out of you head and just chill out. Reading a book could be a good option or maybe you lose yourself in that film you have been meaning to see.
