Yesterday was dubbed blue Monday (despite it usually being the first Monday of the third week in January!)
With Christmas and New Year a (not so) distant memory, it’s back to work and school, not to mention the terrible weather we are having.
Blue Monday first cropped up in 2005 when a psychologist created a formula to calculate the most “depressing” day of the year. The formula and explanation for which (that we can’t make heads or tails of) is below:
“where weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na. 'D' is not defined in the release, nor are units”
I think it’s safe to say that all of us weren't feeling very blue yesterday, but if you’re still feeling a tad on the blue side here is a picture that we hope puts the smile on your face!
