Blue Monday! Forget it. We’re going to turn it on its head and transform it into Bloom Monday. Yes, instead of a day of can’t do misery, we’re making it a day of can-do growth.
So before we all walk around looking glum, let’s start with the myth of Blue Monday – because that’s all it is, a marketing-led myth. Blue Monday, the third Monday of the year is supposedly the most miserable day of the year when we’re all magically made aware that our pockets are empty, the bills are coming in, we’ve not yet been paid this month if we’re working, and we’re still struggling financially to make good on all the money we splashed out at Christmas.
But that’s enough of Blue Monday… Now let’s focus on the more positive and wholesome Bloom Monday, which comes without PR nonsense and is simply based on the premise that positive thinking can banish those winter blues.
So rather than hiding under the sheets and wishing the day away, we suggest the opposite. Get up early, and make this a day for sorting out all those financial nasties you’ve been putting off for ages.
Letâs do this together:
As part of turning Blue Monday into Bloom Monday we’re launching #NoJanuaryBlues, and asking you to think of one uplifting money-related thing that has happened to you. Maybe somebody gave you back that fiver you dropped on the street, or you invested in a family business that suddenly skyrocketed, or a friend that helped you out in need. Whatever the gesture, we want to hear from you. Check out our Facebook for more info.
