Sunshine Monday

SunshineMondayWe declared Monday 16 January 2017 as our first Sunshine Monday!

We don't care what the weather man says – if the weather man says it's raining, you'll never hear us complaining, because today is the day when we create our own internal sunshine.

Sunshine Monday is our response to Blue Monday – supposedly the most depressing day of the year – which falls on the same day. But Blue Monday was invented as a commercial marketing ploy and there's absolutely no reason for us to find the day depressing just because we're told we will. So counter the Blue Monday effect by choosing positivity – try our suggestions.


f you want to try living Sunshine Monday everyday, there are lots of resources out there to inspire you. Here are a few of our favourites:

1 The Action for Happiness website is a great resource to help you live a happier life.

2 The brilliant Story of Stuff team have a brilliant post on their website about the Seattle Area Happiness Initiative

3 Bristol Smile Instigation Collective  does what it says on th tin - instigates smiles. The collective initiates some impressive impromptu smile-raising activities in and around the city, including the mass Millenium Square waterfights.
