Blue Monday 2021 – the January Blues
I have always found January a hard month. I don’t especially like winter, I’m more of a sunshine lover and the short days and dark nights reduce my energy levels. I love the run-up to Christmas with all the planning, shopping for gifts, the decorations and lights as well as the Christmas markets and mulled wine. However once that is all over there is not so much distraction in the cold months.
And I know I’m not alone. I’ve been supporting people for over 30 years now and have seen first hand how many people’s mood dips at the beginning of the year. They feel the January Blues. So widespread is this feeling, that there is actually a day in January called Blue Monday.
