Move over Blue Monday. Welcome Brew Monday – Webinar

Move over Blue Monday. Welcome Brew Monday – Webinar  


Is there actually one day of the year that is the most depressing? It’s talked about so much each year that it must be true, right?


In short, no. Blue Monday was the idea of a travel company that made the day’s title up as part of a marketing campaign to encourage people to buy their summer holiday. So, how do you feel about the day now? Perhaps not so blue after all?


We’ve previously written about Blue Monday and how it has become a self-fulfilling prophecy for people who might have already felt a bit down to feel worse on that particular day in January. We’re welcoming The Samaritan’s positivity of their Brew Monday campaign with open arms. They’re encouraging everyone to reach out to people on this day.


As they put it, “There’s always time for a cuppa and a catch-up”, and we couldn’t agree more. Our question is, what will you do on Brew Monday to increase social support for you and your colleagues?


At Working To Wellbeing, we’ve focused our Brew Monday efforts on friendships and social support in the office. We know that great friendships are forged at work, and people often find their life partners in the workplace. We spend more time with the people at work than we do with our families, and as such, we suggest paying homage to our friends at work. On the 16th of January, we will be hosting an 11’s style webinar that puts a spotlight on the vital role of social support in the workplace and how we can all work to increase our support for each other, look out for each other and in some cases make friends for life.


We look forward to discussing ‘what will you do today to increase social support for you and your colleagues?’ To find out more and register, go here.


P.s Don’t forget your cuppa.
