Blue Monday

The third Monday of January has been awarded the title of Blue Monday due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid credit card bills.

This year's Blue Monday falls during a worldwide pandemic so that everyone's challenges become even more acute. The fact that we are in another complete lockdown in the UK is enough to make you want to put your head back under the covers and stay there!

Turn it into Brew Monday!

Although the term Blue Monday was originally a PR stunt by a travel company, a UK charity (Samaritans) is encouraging people to turn Blue Monday into 'Brew Monday'.

Reach out to virtually check in with friends and relatives to chat and have the all-time British panacea of a 'cup of tea' together. Make a connection, get talking and share your concerns and hopefully generate positivity rather than sitting and feeling sad and alone.

In fact there's nothing blue about it! 

In fact, although we talk about feeling 'blue', there is not an overwhelming sense of depression about the color Blue! 

Yes, there are connotations to stormy seas with threatening consequences, and the over use of blue in decor can feel cold and impersonal. But the over-riding feeling is one of loyalty, fidelity and safety.

If your favorite color is BLUE...

"You are a calm, serene and peaceful individual who appreciates a secure, comfortable and non-abrasive home life.  You are extremely in-tune to the feelings of others and any hesitation you feel in offering counselling can sometimes be mistaken for a lack of confidence in yourself.  You dislike loud people, loud noises and can at times feel that you’d like to isolate yourself from everyday situations.  However, you are an eternal optimist beginning each day with an open page and thoroughly enjoy a challenge.  You enjoy a deep discussion and are extremely open minded, slow to judge and always able to look at both sides of the story. 

As you continually count and appreciate your own blessings you may naturally lean towards working in a caring profession; possibly nursing, social work or teaching and training.  This kind of work allows your own confidence to shine as you guide others towards achieving more of their own personal potential.

You have great creative ability and an innovative sometimes impulsive nature.  However, this creative side always goes hand in hand with a practical streak as you are organized and detailed, sometimes to the point of obsession.

Always focus your mind on the most realistic and practical steps but be flexible and open-minded, always willing to consider any options that may be presented to you.  A temporary period of rest will be invaluable to recharge and revitalise your energy base, before moving on once again.   

Trust yourself to consider all options instinctively but remain positive – have faith in yourself and grasp the future with open arms".
