Hi guys,

Happy Monday 😊 I hope you've all had a productive week. I'm sure it was at least more productive than mine as I got caught by a cold. But, after basically being written off for three days, it gave me the push I needed to make this week as productive as ever. Now although I don't wish for any of you to get a gross cold, I would love to help inspire some productivity!

So, without further ado, here is your small burst and weekly roundup of positive news to start your week as you mean to go on, ready to kick the world’s butt:

Something to look out for: The Scottish Care Review will be published this Wednesday and we're already seeing spoilers from their socials. Two reasons to look out for this: 1) it will be a useful blueprint ahead of the forthcoming care review promised by the government for England; 2) it has a number of youth-led aspects which is SO important. 

Someone whose day got better because of kids: Here's a lovely fluffy thread that made everyone in my office go awwwwh. If this doesn't inspire you to be as amazing as them I don't know what will!

Something to share: Do you know any families in West Yorkshire that would just love some time to get away but might not have the means to? D Jones Butchers are providing a free coach, lunch and refreshments for a trip to the seaside in June. They're absolutely amazing and regularly help the local community where they can, so show some love and look out for other opportunities too - if not to share, then to smile at something genuine.

Something to take in: "If we did all the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves" - Thomas A. Edison.

That’s it from me, I hope you enjoyed this week’s edition of #makethemostofmonday. If you did, please share it using the hashtag above! If you feel you’re doing something super positive that should be included in next week's edition, drop us a line at [email protected]. I hope you have a lovely rest of your week and this has inspired you to not only keep going until Friday, but to give it your best possible shot 😊
