nice things to do in January

How to soften your January

Warm your pyjamas on the radiator. Be naked under a fluffy dressing gown. Run the bath water until it’s really deep and as hot as you can handle and add way too much bubble bath. Light a candle. Meet a friend for a coffee when you’re supposed to be working. Listen in on other people’s conversations. Go shopping and buy the food you want to eat, even if no one else does. Start something creative. Look at the stars every night. Give thanks for the new day. Breathe deeply. Let your shoulders drop. Talk quickly and laugh loudly. Sit in silence. Observe the trees. Admire the birds. Plan your next tattoo.
