Perhaps it’s the winter gloom, or perhaps there’s another reason we might be feeling a bit miserable this week in particular… Even though getting down at this time of year (or for another reason we won’t mention) is completely understandable, we could all do with a few pointers on how to stay positive. There’s still much to celebrate and enjoy when it comes to the small things is life, so whether it’s treating yourself with Debenhams voucher codes or watching cat videos on YouTube, a few of these suggestions might make you feel the tiniest bit better…
Get Lost in a Book
Sometimes we need an escape from the real world and what better way to do this than to switch off those social media feeds and get lost in a story? And if you need some new inspirational reading material, The Book People discount vouchers can save you 20% on a wide selection right now. Of course, everyone has their own preferences when it comes to books, but we do suggest you might want to steer clear of horror stories or dystopian tales at this particular moment in time…
Give Yourself Something to Look Forward To
There’s Christmas on the horizon (more on that below), but giving yourself a definite treat in the form of a theatre ticket or a weekend away is something extra you can look forward to. January feels like the ideal time to store this away for when the post-Christmas blues might be adding to the gloom, and you can find some savings right now with Virgin Experience Days promo codes.
Not long to go now, and perhaps this year is the time to give yourself a bit of a break, especially if other stresses are getting on top of you. If you don’t fancy going all-out, suggest a low key Christmas or pool together your resources with other friends and family members so everyone can pitch in with the effort. After a year such as this, Christmas shouldn’t be adding to the burden.
Yes, you’ll be buying plenty of presents for others in the next month or so, but give yourself a bit of a boost in the process by slipping in a treat for yourself, and there’s no need to justify it as an early Christmas present because there’s nothing wrong whatsoever with buying something to cheer yourself up. To give some extra motivation, you can use current Debenhams voucher codes to save 10% when you spend £50 on your order. The perfect excuse we think you’ll agree.
Listen to Your Favourite Music
Now this will cost you nothing at all and might make you feel an awful lot better in the space of a few minutes. Sometimes it feels like certain tunes have magical powers, so slip on your headphones and harness them.
Watch Cat Videos
And if all else fails, head over to YouTube and watch videos of cats being cute. Worth it, even for just a momentary reprieve from all the gloom:
Don’t worry, 2016 is nearly over and it can’t get any worse, right? RIGHT?
