Blue Monday

Don't be too sad today.

Today, Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 21st, is deemed as "Blue Monday," the most depressing day of the year according to psychologists.


This equation, completed by a Cardiff University professor, explains why:

[W+(D-d)x T to the Q power

M x Na

I know, that means nothing to anyone, but look at what the equation really means:

The model was broken down using 6 immediately identifiable factors; 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. The equation calculates that Monday, January 21, 2008 is officially the worst day of the year, when the Christmas glow has faded away, New Year’s resolutions have been broken, cold Winter weather has set in and credit card bills will be landing on doormats across the land - whilst the January pay-check is still one week away.

Don't forget the fact that it's also a Monday for workers.

I found all of this information at this website.

Keep happy today, despite the temperature of a high of 20 today. Do something good for yourself! What are you doing today that will make today an excellent day?
