5 Tips to Beating the Winter Blues!

5 ways to beat the winter blues

Well, it’s that time of year again. The days are shorter, you’re constantly craving comfort food, leaves are left everywhere in a sodden mess on the ground and you can’t go anywhere without three scarves on. Welcome back winter! We missed you, big guy. If the post-holiday blues have hit you hard this year, we might have the solutions to help you conquer the cold and have a good time while you’re at it. Why, you ask? Because winter can be hard. Plus, you’re probably doing Dry January so we know you’re not out at the pub…

Get Outta The City

That’s right, get outta here. There’s a whole world outside the doom and gloom of your town, with places to escape waiting just outside your doorstep. Whether you’re wrapping up for a winter stroll or curling up in a cosy pub, exploring a new city can be the perfect way to warm up to winter. What could be more magical than the likes of the Lake District or the breath-taking Yorkshire Dales after a fresh coating of snow?

 

Pamper Yourself

It’s easy to get tired of the constantly cold mornings and devastatingly dark days, and if ever there was a time for a little pampering, we’d say it was just about now. Hot treatments are an especially relaxing way to come in from the cold and feel like yourself again, with warming massages, hot stone treatments and facials all helping you to defrost and de-stress. Weeks and months of dingy light and low temperatures can make the best of us look tired and jaded, so why not get back to your best with a warm winter glow?

 

Crack a Smile

Sometimes you have to give yourself a reason to smile, and a set of pearly whites for winter sounds like a good enough one for us! While most people may have mixed feelings about snow, we can all agree there’s nothing better than a whiter than white smile. Brightening up the winter months with a professional teeth whitening service is one of the best ways to keep you feeling preened, pampered and cool in the cold season.
