Blooming Monday

Today is the traditional Blue Monday (although it was suggested that it was Blue Monday a couple of weeks ago too).  Third Monday of the New Year, cold, dark, gloomy and depressing.

What’s the best way to lift your spirits in situations like that?  Wear something bright and cheerful!  And that’s exactly what Mental Health Research UK are suggesting you do with their Blooming Monday Campaign.

I speak about it all the time, but colour has an amazing influence on your mood and how people perceive you.  Instead of retreating into black and grey in winter because it’s cold and miserable, wear colours that work for you all year round and the colour will have a subliminal effect on you. 

Whilst wearing colour might not be seen as quite the done thing in a corporate environment, it can be done subtly to make you stand out for the right reasons.  So, go on, start a new trend for yourself today!

(And if you don’t know what colours work for you, get in touch with me :-D)

I'd love to hear your comments on this post

What on earth is a Self-Image Coach I hear you ask – it’s cross between a Confidence Coach and Image Consultant.

I help clients become happier and more confident by giving them a Makeover from the Inside Out to change their internal and external view of themselves.

I'm not really interested in fashion, just what clothes can do for your self-image - that's where the Forget Fashion blog title originated, so I won't be doing much commentary on the latest catwalk styles.Instead, I write about things I come across in life that make me reflect.Sometimes it's serious.Sometimes it's just fun.Hopefully you'll like my writing style, find what I write about interesting and enjoy the experience.If you do, share the love using the boxes below - thank you 😀
