Blue Monday, a made up gimmick, but a valid one nonetheless. So if you're feeling a little glum, know that you're not alone.
The high of the holidays are wearing thin, bills are starting to come in, daylight is at a premium, and nights are long and cold.
Our experts have all the pick-me-ups you need to survive the most depressing day of the year and keep the Winter blues away until Spring.
Plan a Self Care Day:
A great day starts with feeling good about yourself. A hair appointment may just be what the doctor ordered. A weekly or biweekly blowout is more beneficial than you may know. Did you know that human-to-human contact reduces anxiety by activating the love hormone?
Make a Hygge Routine:
Hygge is a Danish word that translates to the mood of cozy. We are creatures of habit, by making a cozy routine just for you will give you a sense of warmth. Our friends over at TO112 have created a bundle especially for a hygge night in.
Eat Your Greens:
Winter is hibernation season, and comfort food is easily accessible with a click of a button. But our experts suggest maintaining a balanced diet in the long run. Food packed with nutritious vitamins will not only make you feel good on the inside, it will give your hair and skin a glowing boost as well. We love following Dr. Elena Krasnov for wholesome recipes!
We know, it's cold outside! Connecting to nature is one of the best things you can do for yourself when you're feeling low. Wrap up warm, grab a friend, get some hot chocolate and go for a walk in your local park!
