There’s this theory that the third Monday in January (Brew Monday) is the most depressing day of the year. By then, most of us have made the dreaded return to work or school. A lot of us may have already begun to falter with our New Year’s resolutions, and it doesn’t help one’s mood to look outside and realise that the weather is still cold.
But Mondays don’t have to be miserable! This Monday, 16 January, overcome the blues by grabbing your favourite mugs or drinkware and showing up at the doors of family members, friends and neighbours. Because everyone’s mental health stands to benefit from a good catch-up and nice hot cuppa!
Read on for inspiration and ideas on how to make Mondays (or any winter day) more fun.
For a quick boost to your mood, customise some new Mugs or Drinkware for yourself or anyone you care about. We’ve got Pint Glasses, Latte Mugs, and a wide variety of coloured mugs. Make them a heat-sensitive Magic Photo Mug if you really want to make them feel special. Design a matching set of Travel Mugs for yourself and your best friend, and go on an invigorating hike together or even just a leisurely stroll (if that’s more of your thing!).
Make them a beautiful and heart-warming Photo Book. Use travel photos from shared trips, fun nights out, or even just candids and silly selfies taken throughout 2022. This will set the stage for a wonderful year of new memories in 2023!
Surprise relatives and neighbours (especially the older ones!) with a lovely photo card of happy times. Take a few minutes to pen an uplifting or funny message inside (with an uplifting or funny message inside). Consider sending cards out to anyone you forgot to wish a Happy New Year. Macmillan ‘Thinking of You’ cards are perfect for this since they support a local cancer support charity.
Here’s a very fun idea for you and someone you’re really close to.
Bring your laptop, tablet or smartphone (with the Snapfish app downloaded) to a visit with your loved one or friend and enjoy picking out your favourite photos while sipping on your tea or coffee. Turn your selection of digital pictures into printed photos you can hold in your hands. You get 50 free prints a month when you download the app onto your phone or tablet!
