Tackle Blue Monday and book a wellbeing class

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

We want to help people keep the blues at bay and are encouraging them to consider their wellbeing to help combat this.

Wellbeing is so important but BWP recognise that this can often be forgotten or not prioritised. That’s why we decided to start our Wellbeing Project.

What contributes to positive wellbeing can mean different things to different people. It could be so many things, from feeling mentally or physically fitter, building confidence, learning news things to improving resilience or feeling purpose.

As part of this the BWP Wellbeing Project has organised a number of events to help people bring a little wellbeing into their lives.

You are welcome to join in with any of our events, free of charge. Simply contact enquiries@broxtowewp.org to book a place and find out how you can join in.
