Show the first month of the year some love and kick off 2014 as you mean to go on. Yes people January doesn’t have to be a drag, here are my five reasons why January rocks.
The shops are packed full of sales, it’s near on impossible not to bag a bargain. Coats, shoes, bags, TV’s, whatever tickles your fancy you’ll be able to get it with a decent discount. Shopping never felt so good.
Make A Plan
New Year brings new opportunities and new beginnings and January is the perfect month to plan out everything you want to achieve in 2014. Sit down, decide your goals for the year and get excited. It could be a charity run, a change of career or country. Use January as the springboard to reaching your goals.
Summer Is On The Way
Ok it might feel like the arctic outside and you’re wondering if the rain will ever stop but fear not spring is just around the corner (20th March to be precise) which means summer is heading our way too. The countdown to long lazy days in the sun and picnics in the park is on.
Get Friendly With The Gym
It’s no surprise that January is the busiest time of the year for gyms and thankfully there are so many great deals to be had to encourage you to sign up and get familiar with a kettle bell and the treadmill. Not only will you feel healthier hitting the gym you’ll feel happier too by releasing all those lovely endorphins.
You social calendar is quieter than a library so embrace the quiet time and relax. Start a good book, watch movies, spend an hour in a coffee shop reading the papers or your favourite magazine. The pressure is off to be at every party and the family commitments have gone. Put your feet up with a cuppa and chill.
