On Monday 17 January 2022, it’s Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. It’s a term coined in 2005 by British psychologist Cliff Arnall, who believes people feel at their lowest on this Monday.

These messages are definitely worth a quick read!
Do we have a treat for you this January! If you book a session in our private sauna (Monday to Friday only), you can enjoy our thermal baths for the rest of the day for free!
Winter solstice, 21 December, the longest night of the year.

On the longest night, we spend more than 16 hours in darkness. That’s a whole lot of darkness! No wonder it affects our moods.
