Despite providing the ‘clean slate’ people often long for, there’s no denying that January
is a pretty grim month. You can’t leave the house without wrapping yourself up to look
like a woolly mammoth, the bills arrive for all those last minute gifts you bought for
recipients you barely even like and all you see when you look in the mirror is leftover
Christmas blubber. For once, these aren’t the sweeping claims of an angst-ridden writer –
the stats prove it all to be true.
According to a survey of 3,000 Brits, conducted by allabouthealth.org.uk, 75% of us
have already given up on our New Year’s resolutions. Given that 7 out of 10 of those
resolutions are based on improving fitness and wellbeing, it’s no surprise that we’re all a
bit glum about our speedy return to our old selves. In fact, last Monday was dubbed ‘Blue
Monday’, supposedly the most depressing day of the entire year. So what can we really
do to beat the January Blues?
In reality, it’s quite simple; most of us need to exercise more. Not because it makes us
feel better about our inevitable resolution failures but because science defines exercise
as one of the best treatments for depression. Specifically, getting a sweat on causes the
brain to release a mood-elevating chemical known as seratonin. Exercise also uses up
adrenalin, which can increase anxiety and stress if it’s allowed to build up in your system.
First and foremost, then, sticking to the ‘get a six-pack by the end of the year’ rule is
about feeling better. Here at Attitude, we want to help get the smiles back on your faces
and, for that reason, we’re delighted that we can offer you a fantastic discount on all
