This month is especially difficult for me. As you know, my mom recently passed away … I can definitely feel the effects of #BlueMonday this year! Regardless of how it is affecting me, the fact that people feel down, during the month of January, is not unheard of.
Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.
Have you heard of #BlueMonday? It’s the third Monday in January and the day that we feel most miserable after the holidays – likely because the holiday cheer has long faded, we’ve possibly already broken our New Year’s Resolution and it’s just oh so cold outside! Below is a mini-survival guide to help you perk up your beauty routine, fight those winter blahs and skip #BlueMonday this year!
Sit & soak
Take some time to de-stress after the holidays are over and focus on relaxing with a candle-lit bubble bath. Add your favourite essential oil to your bath water and play spa-inspiring music in the background to help you enter a total state of Zen.
Give your body a boost with a healthy beverage
Keep your immune system protected and your body energized by drinking hot lemon water in the morning for a calming start to your day. Consider a healthy smoothie with extra fruits and veggies for a lunch-time boost!
Keep your smile fresh and white
Everyone feels more confident with whiter and brighter teeth. A true multi-tasking beauty product, Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh Toothpaste will help you achieve a radiant smile in just 5 days!* You can also take deep cleaning to a new level with the Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh Battery-Powered Toothbrush for 100% more plaque removal versus a manual toothbrush, whitening and the ultimate freshening experience!
Thank your skin this winter
Just because it’s the middle of winter doesn’t mean you should give up on your sense of summer. Easy, fast and ready-to-use, new Nair™ Wax Ready-Strips will give you that summer feeling even when there’s snow on the ground. Put on a movie and get to waxing – ready-to-use, no warming or rubbing required** and beyond! Your skin will thank you for the silky smooth update.
Go to a hot yoga class
Getting in a good workout is a great way to jump-start your week. Take five from your day, grab a girlfriend and focus on your mind, body and spirit at a local hot yoga class. You’ll sweat out the stress, stretch out dormant muscles and leave feeling rejuvenated to face the rest of the season!
Do you have any tips for beating the winter blues? Personally, I think going for a simple walk can help a whole plethora of ailments … including the blues.
