Chase Away the Blues: Easy Ways to Brighten Your Blue Monday with Made by Coopers
Hey there, lovely souls! As January trudges along, we often find ourselves face-to-face with the notorious Blue Monday – that melancholic day when the holiday cheer has faded, and the winter blues set in. But fear not! We're here to sprinkle a little sunshine on your gloomy Monday and share some easy, feel-good tips to turn that frown upside down. Plus, there's a little extra magic from us to add a touch of bliss to your day. Let's dive in!
Morning Rituals to Kickstart Positivity:
The key to conquering Blue Monday starts with your morning routine. Swap the snooze button for a burst of energy – maybe a brisk walk, a refreshing shower, or a cosy cup of your favorite brew. We have crafted some delightful morning essentials like the Happy Essential Oil Blend, or Happy Room Spray perfect for setting the right vibe for your day.
Dress in Your Happy Hues:
Colours have a magical way of influencing our mood. Break free from the winter greys and dress in your favourite colours. Whether it's a vibrant scarf, bold socks, or a pop of lipstick – surround yourself with hues that make you happy and ready to take on the day.
Create a Cosy Workspace:
If you're working from home, make your workspace a haven of comfort. A soft blanket, a soothing scented candle, and some background tunes can transform your work environment into a cocoon of positivity. Explore Made by Coopers' range of calming candles to add that extra touch of tranquility to your space.
Express Yourself Through Music:
Create a mood-boosting playlist to accompany your day. Upbeat tunes have the power to lift your spirits and turn mundane tasks into a dance party. Whether you're into the classics or the latest hits, let the music be your guide to happiness.
Connect with Loved Ones:
Feeling the blues often comes with a side of loneliness. Combat this by reaching out to friends and family. A quick call, a funny meme shared, or even planning a future get-together can inject a dose of joy into your day.
Indulge in a Healthy Treat:
Food is a powerful mood influencer. Treat yourself to a delicious and nutritious meal. Whether it's a colourful salad, a smoothie bowl, or a hearty soup, nourishing your body can have a positive impact on your mind. And hey, don't forget to savour a square or two of your favourite dark chocolate – a known mood booster! Check out our Calming Cacao Ritual Box which contains 10 days worth of ceremonial grade cacao.
Take a Nature Break:
Step outside and soak up some natural light. A brisk walk in a nearby park or even a few minutes in your garden can do wonders for your mood. The fresh air and the touch of nature are sure to lift your spirits.
Practice Mindfulness and Gratitude:
Take a moment to pause and be present. Practice mindfulness through deep breaths or a quick meditation session. Consider starting a gratitude journal – jot down a few things you're thankful for each day. It's a simple practice that can shift your focus from what's lacking to the abundance in your life.
Unplug and Unwind:
In our hyper-connected world, taking a break from screens is essential. Dedicate some time to unwind without the constant buzz of notifications. Draw a relaxing bath with Made by Coopers' Bath Salts, light a soothing candle, and let the day's stress melt away.
Plan Something to Look Forward To:
Beat the Monday blues by injecting a bit of excitement into your week. Plan a movie night, schedule a catch-up with friends, or treat yourself to a new book or hobby. Having something to look forward to can turn even the gloomiest Monday around.
