Blue Monday (Tell me, how do I feel?)
It’s that day of the year when scientists (whose evidence presumably comes under somewhat lighter scrutiny than that of climatologists) declare it is the most depressing day of the year in the UK – post Xmas slump, weather, illness, yadda yadda blah blah.
So what can you do? There seem to be three options:
1. Muddle through, complaining constantly.
2. Give up – go back to bed with a cup of tea and a magazine full of adverts for stuff you can’t afford.
3. Take control – go for a run, start a new piece of work, read something inspiring.
There’s an analogy here with your reaction to the environmental agenda – you can muddle through, hide under the duvet or take control of your destiny. It is clear from the businesses and I work with that the last option is the only way to do it properly. So why not take a break from the routine today and decide what this agenda means for you?
