Blue Monday – forget it!

Blue Monday – forget it!

Let’s face it, not many people would claim that January is their favourite month of the year. The lack of cash, post-Christmas energy slump, miserable weather and dark days can encourage us to feel low.

But never fear, Humber Doucy is here to help!


Blue Monday – forget it!

Social media and marketing campaigns will tell you that Monday 15 January is the most depressing day of the year. Whilst there is no doubt that January is not the most uplifting month of the year, there is no need to feel blue. Blue Monday is simply a marketing day with no evidence or rationale behind it. The tourist industry introduced the idea of “Blue Monday” about 20 years ago to encourage people to book their summer holidays. There is nothing more to it than that so don’t feel blue!


Time to Breathe

January is a great time to reflect. After seeing family and friends over Christmas, and being so busy, it is a great month to take stock, and just breathe.

Maybe you are thinking about what you are going to do differently in 2024, planning holidays and adventures, or just needing time to be. Having a quiet month, and spending time at home, can be just what we need. We can indulge ourselves in simple pleasures – maybe watching that boxset everyone is talking about, or reading the book you got for Christmas, or just taking the time to have a snooze on the sofa.


Enjoying Time at Home

After all the parties, get-togethers and family gatherings of December, having quiet evenings at home is perfect. You can avoid floods, high winds, and freezing temperatures, and save money. You can still enjoy life and treat yourself – just from the comfort of your armchair!


Humber Doucy at Home

We think the best way to spend time at home, and avoid any feeling of January blues, is to have Humber Doucy with you! We have made it as easy as possible for you to enjoy your favourite Humber Doucy from the comfort of your own home.

You can order from our online shop and have it delivered directly to your door.
