10 Things You Can Do To Beat Blue Monday
…Try something new
Be creative, or learn something new to get your brain active and start thinking of new things instead of dwelling on the old.
By changing your physical state, from a simple shoulder-shake at your desk to a full work-out at the gym, you can change the way you feel.
…Contact a friend or relative
Get in touch with someone you have not heard from in a while; thinking of someone else takes your mind off you.
…Take a break
Go somewhere different, whether it’s a coffee bar you have never been into, or a faraway luxury holiday; by changing your physical location, you change your perspective on the world.
…Be nice to a stranger
Do a random act of kindness; doing good for others is the best form of self-satisfaction.

…Help the planet
Be a good ancestor in some way; the planet will be here long after you are gone.
From a small indulgence to a luxury you have been promising yourself.
…Plan something new
Whether it’s planning a holiday for later in the year or deciding what to do at the weekend, looking forward to something new or different can be uplifting and refreshing.
