As life in Australia is returning to a new kind of normal and the significant mental health impacts of the pandemic becomes clearer, we all can use a bit of comfort and relaxation in our everyday lives.
On the 1st of June, we encourage people around the country to wear their ugg boots at work, school, or at the home office to create a feeling of relaxation after a year that definitely has been quite the opposite.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the mental health organisation the Black Dog Institute has seen a heightened state of anxiety and a struggle to manage the uncertainty surrounding the possible spread and impact of COVID-19.
Three quarters of Australians claimed their mental health worsened due to the pandemic and more than 80% of those also said they felt very uncertain about the future.
We know that the last year has been tougher than most and we wanted to support an organisation that we truly care about.
For those who already own a pair of ugg boots, we encourage you to wear them on the 1st of June, share it on your socials and tag us @ugg_express_australia
