Beat The Blues

Beat The Blues – So before I actually start writing this post I just want to state (for the record) that I’m currently a very happy girl and not feeling those ‘January Blues’ however I know that a lot of you out there aren’t feeling as happy as me so fingers crossed this will help a few of you in some way!

We all start the New Year feeling motivated, refreshed and ready to face whatever life throws at us but January is considered to be a ‘depressing’ month and I feel that’s because we let it be…

If there’s one thing that I could say to people, it’s that we only live once!

Life really is too short to be unhappy, stressed or feeling down and I know, it’s easier said than done – let’s face it, who am I? I’m just a blogger, sat at her desk, typing away at a computer BUT the matter of the fact is you need to do what makes YOU happy.

Make the most of every single day, you don’t know what will happen tomorrow!

If you’re unhappy at your job, leave and follow your dreams. If you’re unhappy where you live, move away and start again. If you’re unhappy in a relationship, leave….

I think most of us tend to get stuck in a routine which is considered to be ‘normal’ and we get used to our surroundings, day-to-day life and we don’t take the risks that we should be taking, meaning that we don’t live the life that we should be living.

So if you’re feeling down or a little under the weather think about making some changes in your life, I know it’s easier said than done but if you make time for yourself and gather your thoughts you’ll see things a lot clearer and everything will slowly start falling into place.

Don’t think of January as a ‘depressing’ month, think of it as a new year with a new start – follow your dreams and go after what you love!

Beat the blues – you don’t know what will happen tomorrow and we only have one life so live it! 🙂

    Love your top, blue is one of my favourite colours for clothing and especially an electric one. I haven’t really had the January blues although I have found it hard to get motivated, so I am planning on starting again in February 😉 xxx

      Thank you very much hun! I’m glad that you like blue – it really is a gorgeous colour, quite chilled out and lovely. It’s a relaxing colour I’d say! 🙂 xxx

    I’m not a a january mood, either 😀 But I HATE this cold and freeze weather and don’t want to go out at all (but nevertheless I do, since I don’t want to let my day be awkward because of the weather 😀 ) I’m trying to fight against it with beautiful winter clothing and it works 😀
    I’m so in love with that photo of you 🙂 you look so beautiful and simply gorgeouss here 🙂 the bluelooks so fabulous on you:)

    Other than beating the Blue, breaking the routine is also great for personal growth too! Article very well written and hey Layla, I haven’t had single Blue day this month too, just like you x

    Thumbs up for positivity and more good stuff coming into your way!

    You’ve made such good points in this post Layla and I feel the very same way! If you’re unhappy with your job, location, relationship – leave! 🙂 It’s true that it’s easy to fall into a routine, though thankfully just like habits, routines can be easily broken! Have a lovely week ahead gorgeous.

      Awww thank you so much hun – it’s exactly like that! We have such a short life and we need to make the most of everything and enjoy every moment in our lives as we’ll only end up looking back and regretting the chances that we didn’t take! 🙂 xxx

    Very motivating post!
    It’s so important to have another point of view when you feel sad or unhappy!
    Great post darling!

    I think that January for a lot of people is just the big down after the high from all the festivities around the end of the year.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. A lot of changes you want to make in life are often easier said then done, but then as you said you really do only live once so if you don’t make changes to improve your happiness now then when will you!

    This is a very uplifting post, darling! Thank you for sharing! <3 Although it's a little easier said than done with these things (I couldn't exactly just 'leave my job' and hope for the best, heh), I do think it's important to always work towards your dreams and things that make you happy. <3 Hope you're having a lovely week so far, hun! x

    What a lovely post! I love the part you said that one should leave anything or anyone that doesn’t make him.or hee happy! Happiness is really important and I learnt that it depends on the choice that one makes and takes in life! Thanks for reminding me that…

    Your words of motivation arrive in time – I think sometimes, we all have down times and that is alright. I just had a few days back and it turns out I was PMSing hahah. Love seeing you in that blue shade, it’s my favorite color, so energetic 🙂 x
