Apparently today is the most depressing day of the year.
Psychologists have dubbed it “Blue Monday”, a date in January when post-Christmas gloom is at its worst.
It is worked out with a formula taking 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.
It is all nonsense of course. But has there ever been a better reason to celebrate Saint Monday? Take the day off, and go off and do something enjoyable instead!
