After the excesses of December, which now seem to take over the whole month, not just Christmas, I have actually found myself craving my own company, reading books, catching-up on films I haven't seen yet and focusing on eating healthily and moving more.

I felt fine yesterday so why am I being told that I'm depressed today? Even if you are feeling the January blues, there are still plenty of reasons to be feeling quite the opposite. Let's not start the year on a sour note, let's push on and make the best of the first month of the year.

It's here again: Blue Monday - the start of the third week in January is allegedly the most depressing day of the year. There's no actual scientific evidence to back this up but it's the kind of theory that feels true whether there's any real science behind it or not.

Why do we do it to ourselves? Don't we deserve better? The end of one year and beginning of another is an event in itself. Do we have to compound the situation by reckless goal-setting? Methinks not.

I want to make today, this moment, this food choice as healthy as possible and to learn from each day to make tomorrow better. That is my New Year's resolution, starting now... at the end of February.

I reluctantly took the risk and borrowed the £170 fee to join after being told I was sure to get bookings and make £450 for a night of wining and dining. I never heard back from them. Ringing and ringing asking for my money back, all I got was an answering machine message saying " Welcome, our offices are currently closed due to the weather" ... now I'm left MINUS £170.

January brings with it a much more vicious and ferocious beast than a few Facebook updates from Jen about how 2014 is her year (and that her cheating boyfriend can go to hell).

Lana Del Rey was sitting behind me on my flight to Berlin this morning. I can empathise with being thrust into the spotlight before you've had a chance to catch yourself. Trying to grow as an artist and a person under intense scrutiny is a nightmare. Some people seem desperate to label her as a fake. Why can't it just be a good tune sung by a beautiful girl?

The new year begins; hope ends. It's a sad paradox, but it's a real one. Apparently, twice as many relationships break up in January than in any other month.

So, today is Blue Monday, so called because, according to various "experts" it's the day in the year we are most likely to feel utterly miserable due to a combination of factors (money, weather, broken New Year resolutions...more on those later).
