You know that proper-good feeling you get after doing something nice for a mate? Well, it’s actually backed by science that helping others can make you feel good. At CALM, we know this time of year can be crap, so we’re asking you to join us and Stick It To Winter.
Things tend to feel much harder when the sun’s not shining, so it’s no surprise that the shorter, colder, wetter days can leave us with the motivation of sloth.
It’s estimated that around 2 million people are affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder in the UK. Add to this the stuff going on in the world right now, and the winter blues can really drag you down.
Do something bold to beat the cold
Looking for ways to get through this last slog before spring? Do something to really Stick It To Winter. Here’s how:
- Choose a challenge – there’s loads of ace inspo below
- Set up a fundraising page and register your activity here.
- Tag us on social media and share your photos using the hashtag #StickItToWinter (the sillier the better). You might even make it into our hall of fame.
You don’t need to raise a lot of cash to support CALM – just £8 can help fund a potentially life-saving phone call. Stuck for ideas? Here’s some to get you started.
