January’s Not So Bad: 9 Reasons Why January Is The Best Month Ever (Ish)

Okay, so it’s not Christmas. And it’s not the height of summer. But here at MyBag, we think January gets a pretty bad rap – which is totally undeserved…

January is often slammed as the Monday of months – the dark, drizzly and destitute four weeks where we all mourn for the cheer of Christmas. However, we think that January is actually a pretty fabulous month – and here’s why…

January is the only month where DOING NOTHING is encouraged


Blame it on the lack of funds/2k17 diet/dry January – but secretly, you’re loving staying in and watching Netflix all day.


You’ll probably barely spend any money


No presents to buy, no festive nights out, barely any organised fun – you’re basically SAVING money.

You’ll feel extra virtuous and healthy – thanks to your ‘New Year, new me’ diet and exercise overhaul
