Blue Monday

Whether this term was created for marketing purposes or not, most people get a little bummed in January especially on a Monday and especially in inclement weather.

Q: How can I beat the blues? A: Try connecting with people.

  • Talk to the cashier the grocery store.
  • Chat with the person in line with you at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks.  (Yes, this might mean getting out of the car and walking in to get your coffee)
  • Start a book club, pasta club, dog-walking club – anything that encourages you to be with others vs. being alone.
  • Or call a friend.

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.  ~Maya Angelou

This week, aim to make 3 people feel good each day.
