Why Blase Day?
The Blase Day was founded by Thomas & Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holidays. The term ‘blase’ originated from the French word which means to be indifferent, unimpressed, or bored with something as it has been watched or experienced many times before.
Blase Day encourages us to take pleasure in your unpleasant incidents surrounding your life by being blase about them. You don’t need to be wary about everything that happens to you or around you. Sometimes it’s okay to feel blase about things that are beyond your control. Everyone feels ‘blase’ at some time or the other. Apathy comes as a natural defense mechanism to prevent us from thinking about things that might cause us too much pain, or when we are stressed or disappointed.
Although being blase is something we cannot avoid, continuing in the same state is not a healthy attitude. If someone is showing apathy for a longer time it could be a deeper psychological and social issue, although it might not always be the case.
So feel free to express your blase’ feelings with loved ones or visit your Psychiatrist if you still feel blase long after the Blase Day.
Unimpressed by the economic situation? It’s fine to feel blase about it. Eating the same food for consecutive days? Be blase’. Nothing new on TV? You know you get to be blase.
