Notice that you are feeling especially down in the dumps these days? You aren’t alone – January can be one of the most depressing times of the year.
The holidays are over, your New Years resolutions are fledgling, and did you know that according to the New York Post, during January there is a one-third increase in divorce filings?
So before you freak out on your bitchy barista who bungled your easy order, take some solace in the fact that January is a frigid bitch.
Go ahead and give January the cold shoulder by being proactive about your sense of internal satisfaction. Separate the facts from the feelings – you have an entire year to achieve your goals, you can seize opportunity at any time and you must prioritize yourself above others to establish a self-care precedent.
