We know from experience (and the number of calls coming into Flame HQ) that January is a time when many single people are making a goal to find lasting love. And why not? After all, it's a time for new beginnings, spring is around the corner (even if it doesn't quite seem that way yet), and there's a feeling of change, or at least the potential for change, hanging in the air.
Unfortunately the winter months don't always make it easy for us to stick to our goals. Short days and long, bone-chilling nights combined with post Christmas credit card bills and the need to lose a pound or too can put even the best laid plans to ruin as we dive for the duvet and embark on a longterm relationship with Netflix.
But it doesn't have to be that way. By making the effort to undertake a little self care, the January doldrums don't have to block your path to love and happiness. Follow our five steps to ensuring you stay happy and healthy, and with a little luck thrown in for good measure*, 2019 could be the year you find The One.
