So apparently today, the third Monday in January, is known for being the most depressing day of the year for a lot of people. That's why it has therefore been nicknamed, "Blue Monday"! Probably due to some of the following reasons:
- The weather is usually crap. Here it's been cold, grey and dark.
- Everyone is still broke after Christmas and there's another week to get through before pay day.
- January can be a bit dull. There isn't much happening after the Christmas party season and most people are detoxing and off the booze now anyway.
- Plus if all that isn't bad enough, it's a Monday!
Actually my day wasn't too bad. Not any worse than most Mondays! The GerMann and I have booked a one week sun holiday for mid February so it helps having that to look forward to!
Did you survive Blue Monday?
