How to Overcome Blue Monday

So-called ‘Blue Monday’ is here.
There is something more depressing about the fact that we nominate and highlight a day that is apparently the most depressing day of the year, rather than the actual day itself.
Calculated through a number of factors - like debt, weather, post-Christmas slump, motivation levels and (particularly this year since January has 5 weeks…) the amount of time until the next pay day - Blue Monday is the date that a general common consensus of feeling “blue” takes over.
But it is not the be-all and end-all. There are ways to overcome it. And we can help!

Lack of Motivation?

Get yourself active to boost adrenaline and increase your mood. Perhaps start a sport or activity that you have been thinking of for a while, and get a group of your family and friends together to join you.
Maybe you want this boost of adrenaline all year round? Why not try becoming a personal trainer? You’d be able to work for yourself and keep active at the same time…even on Blue Mondays!

Debt or low funds?

Surely there are a few presents that unfortunately didn’t quite hit the mark this year. Instead of leaving them to collect dust, why not try selling them online? You’ll make some extra money and extra space in your house.
If you’re looking for a long-term solution, maybe it’s time for a career. January is the best time for new starts, and it will have a positive effect on the rest of your year, as well as life.
Take a look at our extensive list of courses to see what catches your eye, and you could be starting your new career today!
