Contagious Brave Storytelling
in Uncertain Times

Brave Your Day magazine is an independently-run publication, spotlighting everyday bravery storytelling in uncertain times from Scotland to New York.

People who share a personal story about braving their day, can help us all to visualise their human fears, guts and subsequent resilience. And just like a contagion, they pass it on.

We are all willing to take more risks to discover and experiment with braving out our own days, our way.

Launches in NYC

Magazine Launches in NYC on World Mental Health Day 2018

From an early morning subway ride on the #1 train downtown to Liberty street, neighbour to World Trade Center Freedom Tower, to take part in a live studio broadcast back to BBC Scotland, Janice Forsyth afternoon show to the Brave Your Day print magazine launch party on World Mental Health Day.

We rejoiced together with bravery storytelling live from inside the pages of the mag with the gutsy New York Sheroe contributors and Scottish tunes, tartan badges (or pins as the New Yorker’s call them) all within the walls of a whitewashed loft studio on West Broadway.

We pinched ourselves, surrounded by over 60 people, open and willing to come together to figure out how to keep going despite everyday fears and life uncertainty.

WhY brave?

We're Charley and Colin Gavigan, we're the leaders behind this new indie print magazine.

'Brave Your Day' is our fast growing social enterprise with global reach.

Our focus is on bravery-building programs in person, online and in print.

Our observation over the years, is it’s rare for people to describe themselves as 'Brave'.  Yet everyday we witness people being brave in all kinds of small ways.

We believe acknowledging our individual and collective bravery and courage is needed more than ever in these uncertain times.

Our aim for a bravery print magazine is to revive and support ourselves and others with bravery storytelling as a positive contagion .

I've transformed my life to live on the other side of fear in the past 11 years.

I now push to bring my bravest self everyday, no matter how scary that feels.

I have braved out many of my tough life chapters through the power of music.

I've played saxophone for over 40 years.
