If you’re feeling a lull after all the fun of the festive season, fear not! There is actually lots happening in the next few weeks to pack your calendar and help you through the glum January days.

Regardless of what you’re into, these are some of our favourites. 

New Year Evolution Workshop

18 and 19 January

If you’re hoping that this new year could signal the start of a new you, then this is the workshop to sign up to (although places are limited and selling fast). Led by psychotherapist Emma Hogg, it is designed to get you to make – and, critically – keep those new year resolutions by creating an empowered, exciting and fulfilling 2020 that's in alignment with your purpose and is focused on the greater good. Do it!

Chinese New Year Fair

19 January

Not quite done celebrating the New Year? Well, it’s time to celebrate another one – this time the Chinese New Year. This fair takes place at the Chinese Garden of Serenity in Santa Lucija (a gorgeous spot to visit any time of year) and promises stalls, entertainment and even prizes to be won. It’s free too, so easy on the January pocket.

Sip & Paint

21 January

If January has got you considering a new hobby, then a slightly tipsy painting class could provide you with ample inspiration. Paint as you sip at this hip San Gwann café, and then walk away with a piece of original art that’s completely of your own creation.

Reflex 80s

25 January

On second thoughts, maybe you’d like to avoid the new decade altogether. Well, then we’ve got you covered too. Reflex – a party at Gianpula Village in Rabat – will be taking you back to the good old days with music from the 80s. As Michael Jackson said: Beat It.

Couples’ Cooking

31 January

And finally, as we round up January, there’s no better time to let the austerity of the month fall to the wayside and embrace Fabulous February. With that in mind, we’re grabbing our significant other and heading to this workshop at the Mediterranean Culinary Academy, where couples will be cooking up Gnocchi Parisienne and Chocolate Glazed Profiteroles. Yum!

Phew, that’s definitely the January blues sorted.
