Today is Blue Monday

Welcome to the most depressing day of the year. Yup, itís official: the third Monday is January, dubbed "Blue Monday," marks the occasion when post-Christmas gloom is at its highest point, according to The Guardian. (Compared to most years, this oneís probably not as bad mood-inducing as most, since it coincides with a federal holiday and a lot of lucky people got the day off.)

The name "Blue Monday" came about after British psychologist Cliff Arnall devised a formula five years ago for just why people feel so dispirited every year on this day. He came up with a complicated equation that contains seven variables such as weather, debt, monthly salary, time since Christmas, and low motivational evels, reports The Guardian. Arnall, working at a PR firm, used his calculations to lend credence to a press release issued by Sky Travel to prompt people into putting themselves into a better frame of mind with a vacation.

No one needs an equation like the one devised by the former Cardiff University lecturer to tell them that horrible weather, no holidays in sight and a bad economy are the perfect storm for feeling generally bad on this day.

And there certainly wasnít any scientific thought behind Arnallís match. But since he came up with his formula back in 2005, Blue Monday has become for some an annual day to reflect upon oneís general level of unhappiness. At the very least, since misery loves company, itís nice to know that everyone around you is experiencing the blues, too.


That explains alot.



New Order ~ Blue Monday
