AOers prep for Blue Monday like a boss

Back to articles

The third Monday in January has been named Blue Monday due to a combination of post-Christmas stress, those cold and dark nights spent indoors and us basically being extremely short on money. We asked our AOers how they plan to battle the blues on the 15th and we want to share the wealth.

If you feel down in the dumps this month, try these little tricks to cheer yourself up. They’re tried and tested, especially those moments of mindfulness.
