It's that time of the year again. The time when you're broke, you've gorged on mince pies and tinned choccy for a whole month, the weather is dreadful and you basically just want to stay under the covers all month.

Well fear not! Help is at hand as Capital helps you give two fingers to those January blues and kick them out till 2015!


1. The weather sucks in January...there's nothing you can do about that. But everyone knows people look better wet - so get your suit on and get outside!



2. You don't have to all of a sudden think 'I need a new cool handshake this year' - it doesn't always work. Just be you!


3. Get baking – look how much fun it can be. Sod the diet and get some double choc-chip cookies down ya neck.

4. If it is damp and miserable every day outside...you can just stay indoors!


5. Take up a new hobby....how about dancing?


6. Look at this Twerking dog! LOOK AT IT!


7. Spend at least 17 minutes of your day staring at Drake's one of a kind smile...
