Brew Monday – Today is Blue Monday (so called as it’s apparently the most depressing day of the year, but that was before we knew what 2020 had in store for us!) The grey winter weather, the arrival of bills, payday far off in the distance and the joys of the festive season long since forgotten. Oh, and, of course, a national lockdown. To recognise this sometimes challenging time, this year @samaritanscharity have turned ‘Blue Monday’ into ‘Brew Monday’ and are encouraging us all to stick the kettle on, make a nice cup of tea and call a loved one. By making an extra effort today to reach out and reconnect with a friend or loved one, the charity hopes that we can all spread a little positivity.
So, if you have a spare 5 minutes today, we encourage you to reach out to someone close to you and have a chat. It can make all the difference and really helps to lift spirits.
