So it seems January blues are hitting me HARD this year. I always seem to suffer in January, but this year seems just that little bit worse. I need to find something better to do after Christmas, I seem to spend the whole of November and December getting excited and hyped up but then when January comes I just feel like I come back down to earth with an absolute bump.
Whilst I am feeling like this, I thought that it would be a good time to bring out the Five Little Things post and think about that little things that have been making me happy lately. Hopefully this will help me out a little, so here we go…
1 – Leftover Christmas Treats – I know, I know one of my goals was to eat healthier but it is super hard when there are so many treats left over. They just taste so good though and I am working on the principal when they are gone I won’t be able to eat them anymore, so I might as well make the most of them when they are here. Healthy eating starts in February now I suppose ha!
2 – Makeup – Makeup seems to crop up quite a lot in these posts, but I really do feel my happiest when I am playing around with it. I just love how it can make me feel better and more me, even when I don’t actually feel 100%.
3 – Cat Cuddles – One thing that always cheers me up when I am feeling under the weather are snuggles with my furbabies. They are both antisocial and don’t really like sitting on me, but every now and again they surprise me and I find myself sitting still for hours so I don’t disturb them and they stay on me. They definitely know when I am in need of a cuddle.
4 – Drawing – I sometimes wish there were more hours in the day to get everything done. I am trying to make more time for drawing on my iPad though. I find it so relaxing and really love doing it.
5 – Journalling – One of the things I do actually like about January and the start of the year, is setting up my journal. Setting goals, planning the layout and looking at things I want to achieve.
I am hoping the next 963 days of January are a little easier. This month is such a long one, but we will all get there eventually! ❤
