Brew Monday vs Blue Monday
Depression doesn’t care what day it is.
That’s why I’m embracing Brew Monday – not Blue Monday.
Blue Monday apparently originated in 2005 from Sky Travel. The goal, to increases holiday sales using a dubious ‘scientific’ formula to work out a day with the ‘highest depression’ factor.
Whereas Brew Monday has been developed by The Samaritans to combat isolation – which left unchecked can increase the persistent low mood of depression.
Feeling alone with your problems can seriously impact your mental health, so The Samaritans are encouraging people to reach out and have a virtual cuppa and a chat.
I will be supporting Brew Monday with a cuppa.
With milk in first.
How do you make your cuppa?
