Feeling blue? We're here for you

Good days and bad days can be different for each of us. 

As the cold and wetter months seem to go on and on and on, it’s understandable if we all might be feeling a little lower than usual. 

After the challenges of the last few years, it’s more important than ever to take time to check in and give ourselves a little TLC. So, why not take a break, grab a biscuit, and check out our top tips, tricks and recommendations to give you a bit of a boost this January? 

Take a minute for you 

Fancy a brew? Meet up with a mate with 10% off at Starbucks or unwind at home with 15% off Twinings or (if tea's not your thing) top savings on Pact Coffee (who are offering 30% off your 1st, 3rd and 5th bag when you order online!). 

Whether it’s relaxing in the tub with up to 60% off Molton Brown until May or 10% off a break at The Spa Hotel, there’s nothing better than a bit of TLC to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.  

You could even treat yourself to a professional massage or something special to look forward to with 20% off Virgin Experience Days when you book online or get 10% off when you book with Wowcher

Need to talk? 

One of the most practical and productive things we can do to protect our mental health, however, is take time to talk about our feelings with someone we know or – when needed – those with the professional skills to offer support.
