Make a positive impact this Blue Monday

Blue Monday, which is thought to be the most depressing day of the year, is just around the corner…

But the good news is that there is no evidence to back up the claim that the third Monday in January is the most difficult day of the year.

However, the day does offer a great opportunity to reflect on your mental health and offer support to those around you.

To make a positive impact this Blue Monday, consider doing the following:

Catch up with a loved one

Samaritans have put a positive spin on the day, by labelling it as Brew Monday instead.

Brew Monday aims to encourage people to check in with their friends and families by grabbing a cuppa together.

You don’t have to be a fan of tea to appreciate an open conversation with your loved ones!

Get outside

If you have a stressful week ahead, try to make some time to go outside.

Going for a quick walk can provide an opportunity to clear your mind and get some well-needed fresh air.

Exercise can be beneficial for your mental health, as well as your physical health.

Get the support you need

If you are struggling with your mental health, it can be difficult to ask for help.

But getting the support you need is vital, and as a society, we need to move towards erasing this stigma.

Talking to your friends and friends about your concerns is a great place to start. You can also find support on the Samaritans website.
