Best Ways to Avoid the January Blues

Best Ways to Avoid the January Blues

With the festive season well and truly over,  many of us are in danger of falling foul of ‘Blue Monday’. Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) claimed to be the most depressing day of the year. So it’s time to break the cycle! We’ve provided a round-up of activities that will either get you out and about or moving this January!

The Cultured Option - Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery

So the kids are back at school and you need some much deserved ‘me’ time. If you’ve got an interest in the arts, we have just place for you, the Maidstone Museum!

The Museum is home to a vast collection of fine art and historical artefacts, with over 600,000 items of international importance. An amazing place to get some quiet time and take a relaxing stroll around a heated indoor museum whilst you gaze at the fantastic art and historic assets it has to offer.

So, on the face of it, a museum may not have been the top of your list for things to do this January, but with an impressive 4.5 stars from 203 reviews on TripAdvisor, we think it could surprise you. What's more, it’s completely free!

The Active Option - Aqua Aerobics at Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre

New year, new you, right? Well if fitness is at the top of your new year resolutions, think beyond the boring treadmills and consider Aqua Aerobics instead. Located in the Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre, it is a brilliant way to exercise and it’s also incredibly motivating. Not only is it a great way to exercise, it’s also a fantastic place to meet like-minded people. And for just £7.95 for a non-member, this is one activity that certainly won’t break the bank.

The Kiddy Option - Lazer World

You’ve got kids, but parks and adventure playgrounds aren’t ideal this time of year, so how do you keep them entertained? We’ve got you covered. In Crawley, we’ve found the perfect indoor activity to do as a family. Not your typical activity such as cinema or bowling, but Lazer World (that’s right)! Laser Tag is a game of wits and cunning, stealth and strategy and something that is guaranteed to get the whole family moving.

The Versatile Option - Hever Golf Club

You’ve got the family relying on you to produce the best day out but you just want to play golf after an exhausting week back at work. What do you do? In Edenbridge, we’ve found a lifesaver of an option, Hever Golf Club. Its versatility offers activities for all the family. The kids are looked after and entertained with the Children golf lessons. This gives you just enough time to slip in a quick 18 hole game with your significant other before the kid's lessons end. If golf isn't for your significant other then I'm sure they’ll love the luxury 5-star bedrooms and cafes in the hotel should keep her entertained.
