Our top tips for beating the January Blues

With Christmas and New Year now behind us, the nights still dark and the weather a bit dreary; it can be hard to keep upbeat. Here at Get Fruity, we want to make those short, grey days a thing of the past. Try our top 5 recommendations and you’re sure to be feeling that spring in your step.

Plan a holiday

Research shows that going on holiday is key to creating happiness (we like the sound of that Mintel). With our social feeds being flooded with exotic beach and flattering bikini shots, alongside some fantastic offers that we can’t refuse, it would be rude not to. So grab your laptop and one of our delicious Get Fruity bars and get stuck into planning your 2017 family break.

Get some Vitamin D

Our bodies crave a little extra Vitamin D throughout the winter months to help boost our moods and avoid any January Blues depression. To ensure all of our Get Fruity fans have enough on the shortest days of the year, we’ve found this fab list of foods that contain a high amount of the vital vitamin.

When the weather outside is not at its best, it can be easy to fall into the habit of jumping straight onto the sofa with your hot water bottle and duvet. However, countless studies have linked psychological well-being to social networks, which means it’s time for you to make the change. Head to the spa, take a trip to the shops or simply visit friends for coffee. Get up and get outside!


Thirty minutes of activity each day, whether this is a Joe Wicks Hiit workout or a 30-minute brisk walk, can tackle those negative January blues and a little Christmas bulge too. Set yourself some achievable goals, put on your best walking shoes and get releasing those endorphins…because endorphins make you happy!

Be healthy and allow yourself a treat (of Get Fruity bars)

Treating yourself throughout your January diet is a must in our books. It may seem like a negative, but research shows that indulging in a treat now and again can help motivate you, achieve greater weight loss and make you happy. Our Get Fruity bars are the perfect on the go snack and certainly tick all the boxes. See a full list of flavours here.
