Hey Monzo Community!
Blue Monday is upon us, and whether it’s something you subscribe to or don’t, it’s perhaps a great opportunity for our community to discuss the ways in which we take care of ourselves.
What are your best tips? At the moment, I’m trying to:
a) Walk more
b) Drink more water
c) Banning screen usage an hour before bed (because lurking on Twitter isn’t great for your mental health, especially before you try to sleep)
I’m also very much looking forward to the launch of Aloe, a self-care reminder app. Because, in my humble opinion, self-care is the best care.
Also, if you’re reading this and you happen to be struggling today of all days, it does get better. A reminder to reach out to Mind (020 8519 2122) or Samaritans (116 123) if you need help.
(Note: Also interested in any of your thoughts about self-care in general! It doesn’t always have to be essential oils and warm baths, despite what Instagram says.)
