Blue Monday

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

Q:  How can I beat the blues?

A:  Try connecting with people.

  • Talk to the cashier at the grocery store.
  • Chat with the person in line with you at Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks.  (Yes, this means putting the phone down or even better leaving it in the car)
  • 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.
