The 20th of January has been labelled as ‘Blue Monday’, apparently the most depressing day of the year.
Is that true for you? Are you feeling depressed, demotivated or stressed? The post-festive period and the pressure to ‘re-invent’ yourself in the New Year can be very overwhelming. But what is driving your symptoms? There is much more to it than simply short, dark days.

Although Christmas may be slightly different this year, we all still have the temptation to overindulge, with its lavish roast dinners, decadent desserts, and often excessive alcohol. With the build up to Christmas starting earlier and earlier, the temptations can become plentiful, which can lead to an increase in the frequency of these indulgencies.
This can put a lot of stress on our digestive system, with excess carbohydrates, fats, sugars and proteins to break down appropriately. You may even experience symptoms such as diarrhoea, constipation, bloating and flatulence.
