The third Monday in January is sometimes referred to as ‘Blue Monday’ the most depressing day of the year.
Things like a comedown from the festive season, cold weather, dark evenings/long nights & low motivation in returning to work after Christmas all apparently factors.
So Samaritans started the event #BrewMonday to stop this Monday being so ‘blue’ & instead start a conversation over a brew!
The aim to reach out & connect with family, friends, colleagues & loved ones, in-person or virtually, over a nice cuppa (or coffee, juice or whatever drink if you prefer!) The important thing is to listen & take a moment with those you care about.
