Flared Snakeskin Print Trosuers
Oof!  In every direction we look, we're being told of how today is Blue Monday; the most depressing day of the year.  Work?  Weather? Failed resolutions?  There's one million and one reasons as to why today has been dubbed Blue Monday... but let's not dwell on that. Instead, let's focus on how best we can push ourselves through these rainy ol' days to sunnier times ahead!  First and foremost, if you're anything like me and prefer the warmer months of the year, it's best to see these winter months as preparation for what's to come ahead.  Put in the hard work now, and play later...

Ugh.  I really need to work on this one.  The massive effects our sleep patterns can have on our lives is incredible.  You know it, I know it - we all know it!  So why don't we do something about it?

... and enjoy those savings in the summertime!  When the warm weather appears, so do the rooftop drinks, long distance adventures and social occasions.  There's so much to do, and by counting the pennies now, you can save for a time when you'll have an abundance of activities to enjoy come summer!

You know, the one you've been plotting and planning foreeeeever?  Now is the time to pay it your full attention during those evening hours and spare Sunday mornings.  Start now and you might just be seeing some rewards by summer...

Shock yourself and go full Marie Kondo on your life.  Your wardrobe, social circle, digital life etc.  You name it, you can declutter it!

Do I even need to explain this one?  Take control of your mental health by giving yourself a break to look forward to; a time to completely disconnect.  Ahh, bliss.
