Get Through the Dreariness of January with these 5 Mood-Boosting Ideas

Personally, I’ve never found January to be a depressing month. It starts with a holiday and it ends with my birthday, which makes it a-okay in my book! But for many, the cold, snow and emotional let-down after the holidays make it a month that leaves much to be desired. If you’re one of those people that can’t wait for January to end, here are five tips to help you get through a month some call the dreariest one of the year with a smile on your face!

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!


January may feel almost endless at times, but taking some time to take care of yourself will help the month to pass by much quicker. And once it ends, it’s just one short month to the sunny happiness of spring! Try one or two of these easy ideas to help add a little brightness to your January days so you can sail through the month feeling fantastic!

  1. I like January. It gives me lots of time to recoup from the busy Christmas Season, which I love but can be stressful. I like all your tips. I have started doing yoga again, after several years absence. It really stretches one.
