Not everyone enjoys January. Whether you're feeling bloated from Christmas festivities, depressed at your depleted bank balance, feeling like you're already failing at your new year resolutions, or dreading those early morning starts for work, January can leave you feeling not quite as motivated as you'd hoped. Combine that with the lack of light and cold weather and it's no wonder it can all have anything from a mild to severe effect on our mood. If I'm not careful, I can fall foul of S.A.D or the winter blues, and if the change in seasons has left you feeling down in the dumps too, my tips could soon help you on your way to feeling a little brighter.

I've been thinking about my reliance on electronic devices for a while now. I read somewhere that the average person checks their phone 200 times a day, or every 6 and a half minutes, which when you see it written down like that, is completely ludicrous - I actually bet that my aimless phone browsing is contributing to how unproductive I can be! So combined with that, my talk about self-improvement in my 7 Ways To Start Your Year Right post, and in the spirit of wellness and wellbeing for 2017, I've been thinking about how to divert wasted time away from my phone/iPad/etc to things considerably more meaningful and positive - not to mention how many fewer headaches I'd suffer from.. so keep reading for my thoughts and tips on how to start and maintain a digital detox.
