Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January, typically the third Monday of the month; in 2016 this will be 18th January, and is reported to be the most depressing day of the year.
The week of events starts on 18th January in 2016 until Friday 22nd January 2016 and the initiative includes a theme every day in the week, each with an uplifting topic, interactive workshops which guests can take part, learn new skills and enjoy new experiences with the hotels’ compliments.
Topics include ‘what’s your purpose’ by an intuitive life coach; ‘reptiles and raptors’, birds of prey and reptiles; ‘wheely good’ cycling fun; ‘Jurassic jollys’ and unlocking secrets of team work and problem solving. All days begin at 10am with tea and coffee on arrival, session one is from 10.30am, a buffet lunch is included and afternoon session 1.00pm to 2.30pm with coffee or tea on departure.
“Our ‘beat blue Monday’ week is an excellent way to banish the ‘blues’, learn a new skill that can provide self-improvement, see Cober Hill’s facilities close up and talk to us about their future plans or even experience a life-changing moment!” comments general manager, Lyndsay Chamberlain.
The hotel operates a year-round programme of activities that help individuals and teams to develop their skills using the hotel grounds, the surrounding countryside and onsite conference, meetings and event facilities.
