monday, monday

If you're feeling a little down in the dumps today, you're not alone. Researchers in England have declared today Blue Monday: the unhappiest day of the year.
Dr Cliff Arnall, a Cardiff University psychologist, devised the formula that shows today is the most depressing.

His equation takes into account six factors: weather, debt, time since Christmas, time since failing our new year's resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take action.

Taken together they pinpoint today as 'Blue Monday'.

I'm not sure I believe that there can be a single day of the year that is more prone to cause depression than any other, but if you're feeling a little down in the dumps take steps to make yourself feel better.
