How to beat the January blues with self-care

January can be a challenging month; we still feel the need to hibernate, and we may feel under pressure to start new things and jump into making life changes before we are really ready.

Before we even think of change or setting goals, we need to establish a self-care routine that will sustain through the winter months.

Self-care is the basis or foundation for any change you want to implement, it is what keeps you on track and what keeps you focused.

Here are a few tips the help you through the winter blues.

1. Go outside.

Sometimes it can be hard to get outside with winter weather, however, find a moment or two to step outdoors, feel the wind and rain in your face. Fresh air is a game changer in fighting the January blues.

2. Meditate

Sometimes being still and connecting to your breath can help release the heaviness and negativity that creeps in during this time of the year.

3. Exercise

Have something to look forward to is a great way to lift your spirits. Plan a lunch date or look at some fun holidays so you can look beyond the January blues.
