(Not so) Blue Monday!

And just like that, another year has passed.

We have survived 12 more months of uncertainty, chaos and time spent at home.

So we’re using (Not so) Blue Monday as an excuse to celebrate!

Blue Monday is upon us

Supposedly the saddest day of the year, Blue Monday came about in 2005 when it was calculated to be the most depressing day on our calendars. What with the cold weather and dark skies, we can see where it came from but we are inclined to think differently.

After a tumultuous 2021, we are full of hope and positivity about 2022 and want to start it off right! We have loads coming up this year and are looking forward to a calendar full of funky frames.   

So we are going to start by turning Blue Monday into a day all about eye health!

Why Blue is for you

As we spend more and more time in front of our screens, it is more important than ever to prioritise our eye health. Long periods of time in front of devices can play havoc with your sight and it is vital to ensure that you are protected.

According to BlueTech, ‘our eyes have not evolved to provide filters against this type of artificial light [and] prolonged exposure may lead to macular cellular damage, which may lead to loss of vision.’

It’s never been so important! They go on to state that:

43% of adults have a job that requires prolonged use of a tablet or computer

70% of adults that regularly use electronic devices report symptoms of digital eye strain

93% of teens have access to or have a computer
