Join us as we turn ‘Blue Monday’ into a positive!


As Blue Monday arrives, studies reveal that you can get a positive neurological chemical reaction1 by helping others, and we are urging everyone to tap into this today, to help turn a traditionally somber day around.

Working with happiness expert Paul Dolan, Professor of Behavioral Science at the London School of Economics and bestselling author of ‘Happiness By Design’, we’ve learnt that helping to support others and doing something proactive to improve someone else’s life can make us happier and potentially also improve our brain power2.

Paul said: “The brain is malleable, just like other organs. Experiences of pleasure and purpose can  literally change your brain. Giving back allows us to be our happiest selves – helping people fundamentally gives us both pleasure and purpose during this experience.’’

So, alongside the industry experts and our SuperAchievers judges, we’re calling for everyone to show their philanthropic values to help boost our mood this ‘Blue Monday’ and appeal for SuperAchievers nominationsfrom across the globe. Let’s rally the nation into a positive outlook, and gain positivity from doing something nice for a friend, colleague or family member.

Recognising top young achievers, entrepreneurs, working mums and PAs SuperAchievers relies on nominations from friends and colleagues to uncover some of the most deserving, yet inconspicuous members of the workforce.

Nominations are now open and entries can be submitted via

2 Research by Emily Ansell of the Yale University School of Medicine, recruited 77 adults between the ages of 18 and 44 years old. The partakers received an automated phone reminder every night for them to answer a daily assessment questionnaire. The researchers found that those who performed more acts of kindness throughout the day were less likely to report negative emotions. Further studies by Francesca Borgonovi, (2008), Stephan Meir (2004) and the  London school of economics reveal similar insight.
