Powering Through January

January's drawing to an end and February is just around the corner; I've essentially delayed posting this until edging past danger zone.

There's pretty much two fundamental outlooks you can have on this contentious month. You may view it as the perfect opportunity to turn over a new leaf and dive right into a fresh, open chapter. Alternatively, you may be unfortunate enough to get a case of January blues. The abrupt finish of Christmas festivities and the sudden outburst of dark, cold weather.

Like most people I try my hardest to steer away from the latter to avoid that negative mindset, however, we all know that's easier said than done, right? The weather exerts more power over us then anticipated and sometimes you're left feeling a little down in the dumps. But hey.. It's pushing towards February so if you haven't already, let's pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get back on track.

Fun? Probably not. Affective? A hundred percent. You know what they say... tidy room, tidy mind. Just a simple action such as tidying can make a significant difference. I find that if you're surroundings are more visually pleasing then your mind will function with much more ease.

Allow some Relaxation Time
After a long period of indulgence throughout December, sometimes we can be a little harsh on ourselves.

 Everyone has adopted their own lil' self care routine. Mine, however, usually consists of a warm bubble bath, pj's and Netflix and a face mask if there just so happens to be one lying around.

It's the small things that add up to making your day that extra bit special. Give into yourself a little. You deserve it.

Make Lists
Lists are great for this time of year - A visual representation for all your yearly plans and a chance to eject all of your goals onto paper. February is practically here. So let's get writing!

Do it!
If there's anything that has been gathering dust on your bucket list then now is a great opportunity to go and tick it off. Accomplishing a goal of yours, however small, will really set you off in a good direction for the year.

Hope you guys all had a great January, see you next month!
