Whether this term was created for marketing purposes or not, most people get a little bummed in January - on a Monday, in inclement weather.
Q: How can I beat the blues?
A: Try connecting with people.
- Talk to the cashier at the grocery store.
- Chat with the person in line with you at Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks. (Yes, this means putting the phone down or even better leaving it in the car)
- Start a book club, pasta club, dog-walking club – anything that encourages you to be with others vs. being alone.
- Or call a friend.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ~Maya Angelou
