Brighten up a Depressing January Day with Wonderful Flowers

The holiday season is the happiest time of the year for most people but immediately after it we have to face January – arguably the most depressing month of the year.

Flowers can help cure the January BluesIt isn’t really surprising that January is known as the dreaded month. After weeks of excitement in the run up to Christmas and then a few days with the family, spent eating delicious food and sharing parents, you’re understandably going to experience some sort of a comedown in January, especially when faced with all of the work that has piled up over Christmas and New Year.

Whilst the New Year should be a clean slate and a sign of better things to come, many people are left dreading going back to work, having to scrape together pennies to pay those winter bills after Christmas and don’t get us started on those dark nights!

Don’t you think it is funny how in the run up to Christmas the dark, cold nights seem almost magical - with all of the beautiful Christmas lights creating a warming glow as you walk home from work? But when it gets to mid-January and the Christmas decorations have been put away for another year, suddenly the dark, cold walk home from work doesn’t seem half as appealing.

How to cheer yourself up this January

So if you’re feeling a little depressed come January, what can you do to pick yourself up? Indulging in leftover chocolate from Christmas is most definitely an option but another is to brighten up your day with a beautiful bunch of flowers.

You will be surprised at the difference a bunch of flowers can make to your day! Bright coloured flowers can directly influence your mood and completely change the way you are feeling. Different colours influence different moods so it’s important to choose flowers in the right colour.

The best coloured flowers to lift your mood

Flowers for the home

Even if you don’t have to go back to work in January or you work from home, it can still be a depressing month, so why not brighten up your home with a bunch of flowers? Yellow sunflowers and daffodils and pink tulips and carnations will make your home look picture perfect, whilst also helping you to feel more cheery.

Flowers for friends and family

Do you know someone that is having a particularly bad January – perhaps the New Year hasn’t gone off to the good start they’d hoped it to? If so, a bunch of flowers may be just what they need to cheer them up. Granted, it won’t solve all of their problems but it’ll lift their mood and show them that you are there for them.
