The Christmas festivities are over.

If everything feels anti-climactic to you, you’re not alone.

 It’s so common, that there’s now a day dedicated to this feeling called “Blue Monday”, also known as the most depressing day of the year.

So how can you recharge, restore your zest for life and start the year right?

Check out these tips!

Aromatherapy is the way to go.

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being.

So go and light scented candles whilst you’re meditating, taking a salt bath, reading, listening to music or having a glass of wine.

Adding a few drops of essential oils to your diffuser can make a big difference as well.

Lavender, Citronella, Frankincense, Vanilla or Ylang Ylang? Pick your scent, sit back and relax.

This essential oil set from Amazon and this mixed berries scented candle from IKEA will do the trick.
