A message for the world, your going to have a great day!
The third Monday in January is often called ‘Blue Monday’ and is billed as the most depressing day of the year by the media. The highest suicide rate is today, but hopefully this can change!!
With campaigns naming today “Bright Monday” this year help us break this trend!
Need inspiration? Here are four easy ways to join in this activity:
1 – Wear bright clothing on Bright Monday – anything from a colourful shirt or tie to brightly coloured socks.
2 – Call a friend – Check in on someone you may not have spoken to in awhile, or who you think may be struggling. Make a cup of tea and get chatting!
3 – Dress up your workspace – print off colourful images or decorate your area with some new plants, print out a quote, a joke, or a photo that makes you smile, or set up a small bowl of fresh fruit on your desk.
4 – Brighten up someone’s day – offer to make a hot drink for a colleague you haven’t spoken to recently, get some biscuits in for your team or pay someone a compliment
Keep in mind; one bright word can change someone’s entire day or furthermore save a life…
Thank you to my beautiful friend Lily for the inspiration behind this post! She’s a true fighter and I will never let her stand alone…
