Book review: The Blue Day Book

IT’S January again and the air seems heavy with post-Christmas blues and grudgingly made resolutions.

IT’S January again and the air seems heavy with post-Christmas blues and grudgingly made resolutions.

From quitting this to eating less of that, it’s no wonder the start of the year can get to us.

We all need a little boost every now and again, and the Blue Day Book is the perfect solution, giving a sweet, witty insight into why we have blue days and how we can deal with them.

Now into its 10th-anniversary edition – and having sold over 10 million copies since its first printing – this book provides a useful antidote to dark moods and bad days.

Each page features an amusing, poignant animal photo, while the accompanying text gives a gentle lesson in cheering yourself up.

Keep a copy close at hand for dipping into whenever you’re feeling a bit down, or share a copy with friends to have a giggle at together. It’s bound to raise a smile, and that’s just what we all need.
