The third Monday in January is known as βBlue Mondayβ, the most depressing time of the year. This is due seasonal depression, post-Christmas financial difficulty, less daylight, and to top it all off, this is the time most fail or give up on new yearβs resolutions. World Travel Week aims to inspire the UK to travel in the week before, to pick up their spirits and tick at least one thing off their resolution list by travelling somewhere new. With UK temperatures set to plummet, thereβs no better time to escape the dreary British weather and enjoy sunnier days, that will help boost your mood. Adam Cox, Founder of World Travel Week: βWorld Travel Week was created with a simple mission of inspiring people to visit new and exciting countries and destinations. Many people have a habit of going back to the same handful of destinations year after year. This year weβd like to encourage people to venture outside their comfort zone and go somewhere theyβd never normally dream of goingβ. Adam continued. βThey say that travel broadens the mind but it actually offers many other benefits including mental wellbeing, better relationships and offering time for reflection. Although recharging the batteries is a metaphor used for travel and holidays itβs also very accurate and the benefits of travel canβt be underestimatedβ. During the dark winter months, we get less vitamin D from sunlight, which can contribute to making us depressed, which is why itβs so important to get some sun this January. Airlines are even known to hold special Blue Monday sales, meaning itβs easier than you might think to take a holiday and reflect on what you want to achieve in the year ahead. Many happiness experts and psychiatrists claim that focusing on what you can change is a stepping-stone to increased wellness and satisfaction. Dr. Cliff Arnall, the man who coined the term βBlue Mondayβ, says: βUse Blue Monday as a springboard for change, whether it is to lose weight, stop smoking, embark on a dream or change job. Make the most of your life and live it to the full.β For more information check out World Travel Week for tips on how to get the most out of your travels this year.
