How To Spend Your January In Swindon

The holidays are over and Blue Monday, considered the most depressing day of the year is coming this January. But this month doesn’t have to be the most depressing month of your year. It can be filled with fun activities that you, your friends, or your family members can enjoy. And what’s the best place to enjoy it? Swindon, of course.

Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of how you can combat Blue Monday this January in Swindon.

Combat Holiday Weight Gain

Exercise has been scientifically proven to release all sorts of wonderful chemicals that’ll lift your mood, so why not fight the January blues at weekly Zumba classes in Swindon. Available on Mondays at Palmer Hall Fairford, Tuesdays at the Dance Studio of New College, Wednesdays at St. Joseph College, and Thursdays at Holy Trinity, Shaw. They are actually available 7 days a week on varying locations. Plus, the schedule varies on each location so be sure to check out their website.

If you’re not a fan of Zumba, you can try and join Shin Splints for free. This running collective is great for both starters and experienced runners as it offers various groups which differ in mileage. They even offer a splinters kit for when you are just starting out and need apparel.

And, if you stick to those new year’s resolutions, you can progress from one group to the next as you increase your running miles.

Swimming is also a great way to work out after the holidays. Visit the Link Centre’s swimming pool measuring 1m to 2m in depth and 25m in length. Swimming lessons, as well as instructor-led water workouts, are available in the Link Centre pool.

Shout Your Heart Out At Swindon’s Fixtures

Another way to combat Blue Monday is to go to Swindon’s football matches with your friends. Even if you’ve never counted yourself as a fan of watching football on the small screen, watching from inside the stadium is a whole different ballgame. Puns aside, chanting and shouting on your home team alongside 15,000 football fans can be a cathartic experience.

Tickets, as well as game schedules, for Swindon’s 139th season are available on their website so be sure to check it out.
