10 ideas for a better January

We often approach January with a guilt-ridden sense of duty. It’s pretty cold, pretty depressing and we don’t really want to pay for that gym membership. This year, however, we’re saying no to the things we don’t want to do and yes to the things that make our heart beat. From that hobby we want to rekindle to reclaiming our lunch break, here are some ideas on how to make January great again. Join us, if you will, on our crusade to make this month the best of the year.

See

Make the UK your bucket list. From stargazing in Northumberland’s International Dark Sky Park – the largest area of protected night sky in Europe – or hanging out with Britain’s only free-grazing reindeer herd in the Cairngorms, explore what’s on your doorstep.


Do

Embrace the things that get your pulse racing. Try wreck diving in Orkney, canoeing in Strangford Lough – one of the locations for Game of Thrones – or scaling Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.


Restore

Take on a digital detox and turn off your social channels for a week. Reclaim back your lunch hour and use it to go for a run or explore the local area. Cut yourself some slack and make time to intentionally rest this January.


Volunteer

Coach a youth sport, cook for a neighbour, volunteer with a refugee charity or support a ‘haircuts for the homeless’ project.


Learn

Brush up on a language or take up a course – think charcuterie, glass blowing or gin making. Read the classics you’ve always wanted but never got round to.

Achieve

Start a side hustle or get really good at something you love. Set yourself a challenge like seeing how far you can travel on £10 or go vegan for Veganuary.


Trend-set

Wear that item of clothing or brand before everyone else, visit a restaurant’s soft launch or get the app before it becomes big.


Go

Visit Plovdiv, Bulgaria, one of the two 2019 European capitals of culture, the Belize barrier reef or the beaches of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.


Champion

Buy local for a week, stand up for something you believe in, donate to that crowdfunding campaign or leave an outrageously large tip for service you admire.


Appreciate

Write a letter, book in time to call an old friend or visit the person you’ve said you would but never got round to. They’ll thank you and January will feel all the better for it.
