Today is Blue Monday!

Which is meant to be the most depressing day of the calendar. Some of us are facing grim weather, waking up to the cold, being less excited after the Christmas buzz. As the days get darker, you may still be waking up weary eyed and a lack of energy.

How are you all been gearing up to this? Any plans, strategies?

I read somewhere that cosy club Manchester is giving away a free cuppa tea!

Maybe play out some inspiring music in the morning. See the positives, see the positives of your workplace and have fun! Perhaps hit the gym, eat healthy, read a book that you find interesting, speak to someone if you are feeling low. Give a smile to someone if you see them glum 😊. Have things to look forward to!

I always find the period after Christmas and before the weather warms up a bit depressing. You can put up with cold and dark at Christmas because there's lights, and you're distracted with everything else you need to do. Afterwards it's just like "oh, right" and there's no distraction at all. Only the debt and mess and excess weight from Christmas, none of which make you feel particularly great!

I definitely struggle more with my mental health in the winter than the summer. I miss the longer days and the warmer weather. I'm going to focus on doing the things I do enjoy which is TSR and gaming

I put on my headphones and play my favourite playlist probably too loud and it helps me get motivated to get through some of my uni work.

I'm going to go for a run this evening (exercise always helps with boosting my mental health back up, even if I complain no end beforehand ), then snuggle up with a bowl of pasta, garlic bread and a funny TV show

If that's not something to be happy about, I don't know what is! I wrote a round-up of the TSR community's best advice for instantly improving your mental health - go read!
