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.


If you experience depression, low mood, stress or anxiety, you are not alone and help is out there. Talk to your GP or contact your local self-referral psychological therapies service (also known as IAPT - improving access to psychological therapies - services).
