There is so much talk about dry January, veganuary, faddy diets, the headache around credit card bills, sort your debts out, sort your life out! So I’m proposing we all invest in having a FUNANUARY!
FUNANUARY! What does this mean? It means with all that gloom and doom around and the anti-climax after Christmas no wonder people don’t like January, and if your mind-set is around January being a long dreary month then it will be. So instead of having a downer in January let’s embrace it and have a FUNANUARY.
WHY? Because it’s the start of a new month of a new year a year that can be created with some magical moments right at the start.
Take a peek at my examples below to get your creative juices flowing.
Today I looked out of the window to see daffodils beginning to poke their heads above ground which is a sign of spring on its way. I love spring, new beginnings and longer days.
Do something positive in January. Whether that’s set yourself a new challenge to learn to swim, read a self-help book, write a book, or contact an old friend and arrange to meet up for lunch.
Let go of something that doesn’t serve you anymore. It could be to clutter clear your wardrobe, especially after Christmas, and give away what you don’t wear or even like anymore to charity. Why not have a car boot sale instead and with the money you make put it towards a meal out, have a lovely pamper day, or put it towards paying off your credit card.
Alternatively, change a certain behaviour that you know isn’t working for you anymore and watch your quality of life improve dramatically.
Enjoy nature in January by taking a short walk even on cold snowy days can be beautiful. This can boost your mood and spirits, lifting those dark days.
By committing to changing just one thing it doesn’t matter how small, you will feel the benefits longer term on your life and future happiness. What could be better than that?
So January doesn’t have to be boring or miserable at all it’s up to you to make it exactly the way you want it to be.
Have a fantastic FUNANUARY
