Why Blue Monday is reputed to be the most depressing day of the year:
This day is apparently the most depressing of the year with people’s moods affected by their post-Christmas finances, the bad weather and the long wait for summer.
Researchers have dubbed it Blue Monday after finding that people are at their loneliest, debt levels are at their highest and the weather is at its worst, at this time of year.
A survey by the Co-op found that 26% of British people claim that this month is when they feel the most isolated
History of Blue Monday
Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) reported to be the most depressing day of the year. The concept was first publicised as part of a 2005 press release from holiday company Sky Travel, which claimed to have calculated the date using an equation.
In 2005 a television publicist persuaded psychologist Dr Cliff Arnall.to create a “scientific formula”
It was: [W+(D-d)]xTQ/MxNA – where
W is weather,
D is debt,
d monthly salary,
T time since Christmas,
Q time since failure of attempt to give something up,
M low motivational level and
NA the need to take action.

What you can do yourself.
Focus on lifting your spirits, practising a prolonged smile and learning to laugh for no reason. If you are having a bad day, take a moment, take a deep breath and greet yourself in a mirror with a big beautiful smile, holding that smile for 20-30 seconds or more and inside you will be smiling back and amazingly it will pick you right up. Smiling releases endorphin’s that help to pick up your mood and release stress, just like magic.
