Most depressing day of the year


Recommended Posts

Blue Monday is a name given to a date calculated to be the most depressing day of the year.


This date was calculated by Dr Cliff Arnall, a researcher/tutor at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong learning, and has been quoted in the popular press, although there is little if any scientific basis to his methods.


The date was calculated to be January 24 in 2005, January 23 in 2006[2] and January 22 in 2007


The date was calculated by using many factors that include: weather conditions, debt level (the difference between debt accumulated and our ability to pay), time since Christmas, time since failing our new year?s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action. This date typically falls on the Monday of the last full week of January. This would make Jan 21st the Blue Monday of 2008.


Not Blue for me - I have today off!
