How To Beat The New Year Blues

Have the New Year blues hit yet? The fairy lights which adorned your house are now tangled up in their box gathering dust until next year, the waistline on your jeans is feeling more than a little snug, your bank account is practically crying, your fitness regime has well and truly failed, and you’re back to work. With all of this going on it’s hardly surprising that you’re feeling more than a little down in the dumps. But fear not! I’ve come to your rescue with a few fail-proof ways to help get your mojo back!

Book a holiday

Picture yourself relaxing on the beach, reading a good book and sipping on a glass of the finest grape. Sounds good, right? And yes, I know technically you can do all of this in Dubai but research shows that going on holiday is the key to creating happiness. And I’m not going to argue with the professionals! If you’re worried money is a little tight this month just make sure to use your ENTERTAINER Hotels Worldwide (free with every App!) so you can enjoy buy one night and get one free in a whole host of hotels!

Be more sociable

When you’re feeling a little low it’s easy to get sucked into the mentality of not leaving the house. But sometimes all the remedy we need is a good catch up with our friends. So, how about heading to your favourite restaurant and having a good old gossip around a delicious meal. I love Totora Cebicheria Peruana for its gorgeous Peruvian food which goes a long way to making you feel better.

Eat well

As much as we all love diving into the Quality streets and Pringles you have to admit that it can leave you feeling sluggish and less than well. But in order to make a lifestyle change, you need to find food which is not only healthy but delicious too. Head to the Gourmet by Kcal for a slap up healthy and hearty meal which will keep you more than satisfied.

Get more exercise

As painstaking as it may be to believe a little exercise really does make us feel much more positive and uplifted. However, the idea of pounding the treadmill may not sound too appealing! So, how about doing something a little bit different? Head to Souplesse Cycle, the boutique indoor cycling studio and try their RealRyder® class. Featuring the bike made to move, lean, twist and steer all to the sounds of dance music! Get yourself down there and have a go yourself! I guarantee you it will be one of the most fun fitness classes you’ve ever done.

Treat yourself

Make a point of doing something you love this month. It can be anything as long as it makes you happy. If you’ve been wanting to get your nails done for ages but just haven’t got round to it then head to Essa Beauty for a gorgeous manicure. Or, if a massage takes your fancy then head to Petit Spa L’Occitane for a heavenly 60Min Body Massage.

Chin up guys. You may be back into that same old routine but at least all of these offers are 2 for 1 in your ENTERTAINER meaning you can go out and treat yourself! You deserve it!
