Did you know that Monday is known as the most depressing day of the year… also known as ‘Blue Monday’.

I mean, I get it. It’s the post-holiday slump, we’re all truly back at work now and the time between our last pay slip and our January one seems to have been stretching on forever.

But you can beat the blues – and we’ve pulled together a little ‘Beat the Blue Monday Blues’ guide to what helps to boost our mood – hopefully these will leave YOU feeling lifted. Monday can be a chance at a fresh start, a new week has begun and new opportunities lie ahead… so let’s embrace it!
