Feeling low?  Energy flagging?  Welcome to the bleakest 31 days of the year.

January is a boring month; it is National Weight Awareness Month and National Oatmeal Month, it is also Dry January in Britain, what a time for no alcohol!  

Doldrums was once the term used to describe the long difficult journey faced by sailors when there was no wind to push them on their way.  Today, we associate the doldrums with the sluggish and depressed feelings we get in the depth of winter when there is nothing to push us on our way.

How to cope?  Here are some great suggestions (edited by me):

Exercise – bundle up and go for a walk around your favorite art district.
Meet up with friends and do something cheerful like visit your favorite art district.
Craving comfort food? Check out special events at your local galleries, they often have great comfort food and a little wine.
Indulge a little, buy something for yourself.  What better than art!
Organize, throw out and decorate; sounds like a great time for a new painting or two.
Re-do part of your interior; need some new paintings, sculpture, pottery?
Have friends over, cook something you’ve never made, play in the snow, then sit by the fire and admire your new art.

Of course you can hibernate; binge-watch Netflix; spend the month reading in the bathtub.  But whatever you do, don’t crawl back into your hole.

Get out and soak up some sun, schedule some fun and indulge just a little.
