Beyond Blue Monday: Positive Actions for January | Just Eat for Business

As January rolls in, so does "Blue Monday," a term used to describe the supposed most depressing day of the year. Read on to find out what foods we should include in our work lunches to help boost our mood and feel our best throughout January and beyond.

Did you know that the concept of Blue Monday was reportedly thought up by a psychologist in 2004, who was asked to do so by Sky Travel, who then used the phrase to promote their winter deals?

It's become a day associated with feelings of sadness and post-festive blues. Instead of succumbing to the gloom, let's look at how we can break away from this narrative and enhance our wellbeing at work. Rather than attributing our mood to a specific date, it's more productive to focus on actionable steps we can take to make January a more positive month overall. From making an effort to eat healthier to cultivating a work environment that encourages breaks, there are plenty of ways to beat the January slump.

Want to know how to perk yourself up? Good news: The answer could lie in your office breakfast and team lunch . Read on to find out more!
