Blue Monday – Most Depressing Day of the Year?

Jan 14, 2018

Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) claimed to be the most depressing day of the year. This year it’s Monday 15th January 2018.

However, knowing it’s coming up, you could make a conscious effort to set out and enjoy it – in different ways perhaps, but just as much as you would enjoy a warm summer’s day. How can that be possible?

Well, it’s really is up to you whether you exist in a prison on Blue Monday, or you enjoy yourself. If you prefer the latter, our suggestion is simple: exercise.

Aerobic exercise, any steady movement you enjoy—walking, jogging, swimming, cycling—boosts endorphins, and will leave you feeling calmer and happier.

To stay healthy, adults should do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity every week. If you haven’t exercised for a while, gradually introduce physical activity into your daily routine. Any exercise is better than none. Even a 15-minute walk can clear your mind and relax.

And after that, who wouldn’t like a massage ? Treat yourself you’ll feel, look and simply be healthier far into the future. It’ll promote a faster healing of strained muscles and sprained ligaments; reducing pain and swelling as well as formation of excessive scar tissue

Make your Blue Monday the best Monday of the year!
