It's bloody freezing isn't it? I'm trying to not let the January blues kick in and stay cheerful on these cold and dreary days. Now I've gotten over the flu, I'm back into a routine yoga at home several times a week using the Yoga Studio app (brilliant). I'd do it every day but I really do struggle to get up early enough every day.
I've been drinking this Ayurvedic Tumeric Immunity Tea from the lovely Monday's Wholefoods journal (that my sister kindly posted me from New Zealand for Christmas). It's delicious, and I'm hoping it's helping rebuild my immunity after our Christmas/New Year bout of flu. I can't wait to visit Monday's Wholefoods next time I'm home in Auckland.
I'm lucky enough to be working near Spitalfield's market at the moment. So every Thursday I make sure I take a proper lunch break and head over the weekly antique's market. There's plenty of treasures to found (although many are a bit on the pricey side). I try to limit myself to something every few weeks, unless I absolutely have to have it.
Spring bulbs on my kitchen window are making me smile every day. Although I didn't really make any New Year's resolutions as such, this year I'm trying to read more, have quiet Sundays at home and generally stop rushing around so much.
Hannah's post on Seed & Stitches about January really resonated with me. And Nat's post on drinking less and having a dry-ish life rather than than a dry January is exactly what I've been trying to do. (See my post on feeling lighter).
How are you making January more bearable?
