January Blues

by | Jan 25, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Do you get the January blues? I used to be upset with myself when I lost interest and energy during January. It has been a regular event for quite a few years. When the January winds blow in, I want to hibernate.

I have not checked out why this happens, but I now embrace it. I expect the yearly event and prepare myself for a few weeks with the blues.

As much as possible, I combat my blues with positive actions. Here are a few examples. Maybe you have some more ideas.

  • Daily morning time curled in my big chair with a blanket, hot tea, and my Bible and devotionals
  • Hot beverages available all day
  • Slippers and leggings
  • Sabbatical from various monthly meetings
  • Good movies
  • Many books
  • Quiet evenings at home
  • Walks with my dog
  • Limited phone calls and less social media time
  • Time to plan and moments to be thankful
  • Cuddly cats


My January blues do not seem so uncomfortable now, though I do look forward to the return of energy and sunny skies.
