Lockdown activities to beat Blue Monday

Blue Monday is regarded as the saddest day of the year. January 18 is a date on which, generally speaking, our moods are low. The holiday season has passed, and it feels like a long stretch until summer. With restrictions to prevent the spreading of COVID-19, many of us are not allowed to leave our homes. With this in mind, this year’s Blue Monday has the potential to be an especially challenging one regarding our mental health and well-being. Despite distancing ourselves from other people physically, we can still do plenty of things to relax and feel good. Sometimes it’s challenging to come up with activities to fill our days, and we get stuck doing the same thing repeatedly in our free time. That said, this list will give you some new ideas with regards to what you can get up to. It’s nice to have a change, and it’s easy to forget what we enjoy. It’s also easy to lack the imagination of what to do besides binge-watching YouTube videos and Netflix. Click through this gallery to discover lockdown activities that can help you beat Blue Monday and the monotony of the months ahead.
