The decorations are down, the festivities are over, and the new year is here. But with this new beginning can come a sense of emptiness or even sadness. It’s important to recognise the potential impact this transition can have on our mental health and take steps to prioritise self-care and well-being.
January can be a challenging month for many reasons. The post-holiday letdown, the return to work or school, and the cold and gloomy weather can all contribute to feelings of low mood and lethargy. Additionally, January is often a time of reflection and goal-setting, which can bring feelings of pressure and self-doubt.
