Brew Monday 2021

Stay connected with a virtual cuppa!

The third Monday of January has been named Blue Monday and has been given this gloomy title due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid credit card bills.

This year at Hallam Medical we are turning Blue Monday around and meeting our colleagues for a virtual cuppa!

The Samaritans have re-named Blue Monday to Brew Monday to encourage people to get together with friends and family and have virtual cuppa, have a chat and to check in on our loved ones.

Staying connected with friends and family, especially in these very uncertain times is extremely important.

So whether you pick up the phone to call your parents, siblings, children, friends colleagues or neighbours you can do this via a number of methods:

• Group audio/video calling is available on Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp (up to 4 people on a call) and Facebook messenger

• A phone call or conference call can work just as well for connecting with people, especially for those not comfortable on camera.

What are you waiting for? Get the kettle on and let’s get talking!
