Blue Monday is reportedly the most depressing day of the year. But here at lookfantastic, we're sharing the positive vibes to combat Blue Monday and turn it into your most beautiful Monday yet!

Eat your Vitamin D

This time of the year is also classed as SAD season, when people suffer from seasonal affective disorder. This can be due to a lack of sunlight, or Vitamin D in particular. Respnsible for maintaining the health of your nervous system, it's a key vitamin all-year round, but especially during this time of the year, and on Blue Monday in particular.

Up your intake of fruits and vegetables, and take a supplement such as the Vitamin D3 from myvitamins.

Clean out your personal space

It might seem like the most boring job in the world, but one of the easiest ways to improve your mood (and combat Blue Monday) is having a good old clear out. Throw away old beauty products you don't use, and make a list of all the new ones you want to try in 2018.

In addition, treat yourself to some new goodies for your home; we love the NEOM Happiness Reed Diffuser and Scented Candle. Together, they make a winning combination to banish those January blues.

Start a kindness chain

When you wake up on Blue Monday, have a think about how you can make someone else's day. Giving back is honestly one of the best ways you can improve your mood as it makes you feel great.

If you're ordering your morning coffee, try ordering one for someone else. Or do a kind deed at work. The possibilities are endless, and the effects are fabulous.

Invest in a new beauty product

January is the longest month for pay-day, and it can feel like ages before you treat yourself. On Blue Monday, why not make an exception and treat yourself to that new product you've wanted to try for ages?

Have a read about some of the new beauty products we're lusting after this month to give you some inspiration.

Get some beauty sleep

There's nothing worse than feeling tired, especially when it's the start of a full week at work and on Blue Monday. Make sure you get yourself to sleep early and start a new sleep schedule to make sure you get enough shut eye. It will benefit your skin, wellbeing and overall mood.
