January has arrived and it can feel like a bit of an anticlimax after all of the celebrations and excitement of Christmas and New Year.  This can be a difficult time for some with nothing to look forward to, but it doesn't need to be all doom and gloom.  

There are several things that are often suggested to help people to overcome the January lull which could include:

  • Getting Outside & Staying Active - Venturing outside even for a short amount of time each day can really change your mood.  Fresh air really is a miracle cure if you are feeling a bit lost and walking, jogging or running is great exercise.  
  • Booking A Holiday - Booking a holiday a few months ahead of time gives you something to look forward to.  If you are feeling the post Christmas pinch, there are  usually many deals that allow you to pay a small deposit now and pay in full later.  
  • Eating Well - We naturally crave heavy, fatty and sugary foods in the winter but they aren’t always the healthiest choice.  Choose a varied diet and include plenty of fresh fruit and veg.
  • Getting Enough Sleep - Adults need between 7 and 9 hours sleep per night in order to function efficiently.  Poor sleep can negatively impact your mental health leading to anxiety, excess worrying and irritability.  Reducing screen time in the evenings is a good way to improve the quality of your sleep.

Devon Hampers To Get You Through January

January can offer the opportunity to try new things and catch up with friends and relatives who you may not have been able to squeeze into your busy December schedule.  So our suggestion is to take advantage of this month and make it happen.  Why not hold a cheese and wine night with friends or host an afternoon tea with family members that you may not have had the chance to see over Christmas.  We have the perfect hampers for such an occasion.  If physically getting together with loved ones is not possible, why not send a hamper to them instead, to let them know you are thinking of them.  It may even cheer them up during this gloomy month.
