Blue Monday is just around the corner again: the most depressing day of the year. The weather is glum, you get less daylight than a vampire and your body is struggling to adjust to the withdrawal of joyfully calorific festive food.
Whether you believe the third Monday of January is indeed as depressing as the media tell us every year, or, y’know, don’t – there’s never any harm in taking steps to feel happier, calmer, fitter, stronger and healthier.
Without a doubt, the best way to beat the Blue Monday bug is with exercise. Don’t be tempted to shove your exercise gear to the back of your drawer and hibernate – staying active can help lift your spirits in all kinds of ways.
We’re only as fit as our ability to adapt and respond to the environment.
