Have you heard of Blue Monday? The Guardian newspaper says it was coined by a travel agency that paid for a study in 2005, by psychologist Cliff Arnall produced a formula that claimed to show which was the most “depressing” day of the year.
The formula took into account the number of days after Christmas, the weather, new debt and the fact that it was Monday. The study said that the 3rd Monday in January was Blue Monday.
The drink company Upbeat says that is a myth and that it is the first Monday.
It may or may not be a real thing, but why take chances? Paruse some cute animal pictures an feel better, regardless of the day.
