Open thread: Tell us what helps you to keep going everyday and WIN a cool Bobbin bike
Coffee? Family? The weekend? Let us know and you could win a gorgeous vintage-style Bobbin bike.

HAS YOUR WEEK started well? Or are you just waiting around for the weekend?

There are plenty of things that keep us all going thoughout the week –  from treating yourself to a fancy coffee on the way to work, to the thoughts of that summer holiday you may already be planning, or have booked.

We asked around the office about what keeps people going and one staff member in Journal Media Towers told us,

It really is all about the little treats during the day or week. For instance, I’m working the late shift tonight, so I’m taking the time to make myself a full Irish breakfast and I’m going to read the weekend papers while I eat it before heading into work. Bliss.

Isn’t it funny how the smallest of things can give us hope and the drive to keep going, even when times are tough?


From catching up with an old friend and having a natter, to going for a long walk or even just watching silly videos of baby pugs falling over, there are lots of ways to keep going no matter what’s going on.

So, we want to know, what helps you to keep going every day? Let us know in the comments below and you could win a cool vintage-style Bobbin bike, perfect for keeping you going. We’ll choose the best comment – good luck.
