Pyjama Day – Celebrating World Mental Health Day 2019
Let’s Talk About: why we wear pyjamas…
Pyjamas symbolise for the vast majority the idea of comfort; like the Danish lifestyle trend of Hygge, which encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. Pyjamas can for many, embody this feeling.
Other times, they can symbolise a safety blanket for those going through the many things that life can throw at you. Like, stress, illness, mental health issues, or maybe, just ‘one of those days’.
Pyjamas are versatile. They allow individuals to signal to others when things might not be going so great, without feeling the need to talk, and to highlight this, and celebrate World Mental Health Day, we created an event that we believe is inclusive and relatable. Lamp staff will be wearing their pyjamas in the office, and would like for you to join us!
If you are a school, workplace, community group, or just yourself, looking to show your support for a worldwide mental health awareness day, please join us in wearing your pyjamas on Thursday 10th October 2019! You can tag us in your photos using the hashtag #LampPJDay
Let’s spread awareness for World Mental Health Day 2019 and beyond!
