The best literary pieces are eternal because the message they bring never dies or because the characters born out of the stories we remember, just as we would remember old friends. While some we never forget because they made us laugh or fall in love, there are some female literary characters whom we can never forget because they are eternally enigmatic. A door left to slam shut will not go by unnoticed, once we read Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain because it will remind us of Clavdia Chauchat making her “noisy entrance” into the hall and taunting Mann’s protagonist while doing so.

Although Blue Monday is long gone, a lot of us are still feeling a bit blue this winter. To cheer right back up again, why not forget that restrictive ‘new year new you diet’ and that ‘quitting social media for good!’ resolution. Instead, use these science-backed life hacks to favour cookie cramming, bubbly glugging and early morning workout avoiding for lazy lie-ins and Snapchat.
