The third Monday of January is reputed to be the time when the post Christmas and New Year’s blues have kicked in. Labelled as Blue Monday, it is now thought to be the most depressing day of the year. Have no fear, we’ve got just 3 simple solutions to chase those figurative clouds away!
1. Make sure you get enough Vitamin D during winter, either by taking a holiday to somewhere sunny, or consider supplementing with a bio-available form of Vitamin D3.
2. Engage in a new hobby, preferably one that involves you moving your body to music. Getting your blood pumping is one of the easiest ways to produce blues-busting endorphins!
3. Spend more time with positive people. While it may be true that misery likes company, it is also true that being around people who are solution-focused, goal-oriented and postive, means it is more likely that you will be that way as well.
Well-respected for its effectiveness in treating a number of psychological issues, CBT is one of the few evidence-based forms of psychotherapy. When used as an adjunct to hypnosis, it is an especially powerful tool, almost doubling treatment success, and halving treatment time in many instances.
This is primarily because sessions are focused on raising your awareness of automatic negative thoughts, and modifying your internal dialogue with more positive, solution-focused ones.
