Beat the January Blues

Jan 05, 2021

So here we are at the beginning of 2021 and...we are back in lockdown!

To be honest, I can't say this situation is very different from Tier 4 except that the kids are now back to online learning. I have friends in other parts of the world that seem to be living life more normally, but we are all still feeling the stress that the pandemic has brought.

I know there have been a lot of hopes pinned on the end of 2020 and a return to normal life in 2021, but I'm afraid we're not out of the woods yet. On the up side, vaccinations have started and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. On the down side, that light is further away than we thought and we won't get there before March at the earliest.

But don't lose hope my friends! We have all learned from the previous lockdowns and it is a new year with a great opportunity to do things differently. I am of course focusing on how to be more productive as I am a productivity coach, but before we dive into that good stuff, I thought it might help to start the year by putting our heads and our bodies in the right space first.

That's why I have created some great resources to get you through the next two months feeling great. I hope you enjoy it all, and please let me know any thoughts or questions in the comments...

Prioritise Self-Care

Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Self-care needs to be something you actively plan, rather than something that just happens. Even though we are on lockdown, we still need to remember to look after ourselves, in addition to our family! Checkout my blog for my top tips and a FREE cheat sheet.

What Does Self-care Mean



The benefits of practicing gratitude are nearly endless. People who regularly practice gratitude by taking time to notice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positive emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, express more compassion and kindness, and even have stronger immune systems. With the times we are living in, I think it's so important to keep a list of things we are grateful for. It can be anything: food to eat, house to live in, kids to love, not having Covid-19. Just list 10 things that you are grateful for at the end of every day and I am sure you will feel differently afterwards. You'll see how it can change your attitude and day!
