New Year’s resolutions. Almost everyone has them, whether it is to quit smoking, hit the gym more often, or just be a kinder person. The reason I chose these examples is because they all go through my mind of the 1st of January of every New Year, but then I decide not to go through with them.
For me starting something on the 1st of January is almost a guaranteed recipe for failure, you start off with so much good intention and motivation, but somewhere along the weeks or days you give up and then Blue Monday comes along.
The most depressing day of the year. It’s usually around the second week of January that this phenomenon comes along. The reason for it being the most depressing is because two weeks into January and people are starting to lose motivation for their News Year’s resolutions. the bills from Christmas and New Year’s start pouring in and its another two weeks till payday, depending on the country it is usually grey outside, cold and the lack of sunshine doesn’t help either.
However, it is important to always look on the bright side! For the readers here in Spain, we are enjoying this beautiful weather and sunshine, and for all the others. Before you know it we will be heading towards the end of Febuary and you will have forgotten all about these few depressing weeks.
How about you?
