HANX Presents The Blues

The Blues. Blue balls. All the worst things tend to be blue. Today, Monday 18th January, is said to be the most depressing day of the year - also known as Blue Monday.

The Blues: a pervasive feeling of melancholy or sadness.

To be honest, there’s a lot to feel blue about right now. From love lives in lockdown to distant memories of lunch-turned-dinner-turned-it’s-WHAT-o-lock-in-the-morning hangouts, we’re all experiencing the tough realities of living as an isolation nation. Job-wise, relationship-wise, human-being-wise: we’ve never been more under pressure and many of us are dealing with pre-existing or newfound mental health issues including anxiety, stress, burnout and depression on top. :brain:

Join us as we switch up our feed to bring you the content you actually wanna read right now, from discussing the new age of intimacy in a post-isolation world with a sex toy pioneer, to exploring the disparity behind public/private personas with an original lifestyle influencer and the importance of establishing everyday rituals with one of the minds behind our favourite cult coffee brand. Oh, and we’ll be digging deep to discover the links between hormonal contraception and mental health. :cyclone:

Find out more about The Blues here, catch up with our interactive In The Midnight Hour IG Stories now (every Wednesday and Friday this month at… midnight), subscribe to our newsletter for jam-packed emails full of good vibes and radical transparency and join the conversation here on what’s bringing you hope and what’s bringing you the blues.
