3 ways to brighten up your January
With its dull grey skies, incessant rain and biting wind, January is one of the most miserable months of the year. What’s more, with most of our money spent on Christmas presents and festive outings, there’s often little left in the coffers for any treats to brighten up the long, dark days.
But fear not, there are a few ways to brighten up your January and drive the winter blues away. Here are three of our favourites to get you started.
1. Cheap cinema deals
Though Orange Wednesday is sadly no more, there are still cheap cinema deals to be had across the country. The mobile phone operator’s popular 2-for-1 offer was actually replaced by Meerkat Movies. Run by Compare The Market, the offer is open to anyone who’s purchased a product through their site. Simply download the app to your phone, apply for a code and you’re good to go.
Alternatively, check your local cinema to see if they offer reduced tickets during the week. A lot of chains will offer half price seats on Tuesdays, allowing film fans to get their cinema fix on the cheap.
2. Package holidays
If you have a bit of vacation time saved up, January is a fantastic time to find great deals on package holidays.
Sites like Teletextholidays.com often have last minute deals to places like the Canary Islands, the Algarve and other popular destinations for a fraction of the price of summer getaways. The more flexible you can be, the better deal you’ll get, so why not pack your bag and jet off to the sun?
3. Get fit
Though this may not sound like a lot of fun, exercise is a great way to release your endorphins, boost your health and improve your overall wellbeing.
Work off the excesses of the festive period by joining the gym, going out running or heading to your local swimming pool. The work you put in now won’t only make you feel healthier and happier, it will also give you a head start on that all important summer beach body.
