How to Survive Blue Monday

The third Monday of January has been awarded the gloomy title of Blue Monday due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid credit card bills.

Apparently, a university professor managed to precisely calculate the most depressing day of the year, using the following formula:

Where 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. ‘D’ is not defined in the release, nor are units.

(Supposedly the date was calculated by using many factors, including: weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action.)

So how can we get past this horrid day unscathed?

💙 Don’t believe the hype! Just because we’re told it’s a depressing day doesn’t mean it has to be, so go ahead and make plans like you would for any other day.

💙 Get outside. Whatever the weather, some fresh air and some brisk walking will always make you feel better.

💙 Get creative. Plan and cook a delicious dinner, work on a craft project, get out the pencils and do some colouring. Whatever your creative passion is, set aside some time for it.

💙 Give yourself a treat. Book a massage, laze in a deep bubble bath, read a book and relax, spend a little time on yourself.

💙 Don’t be alone. If you feel like the day is going to get on top of you then make sure you get someone along for the ride to keep you company. With a good friend by your side you’ll probably forget all about Blue Monday.

💙 Think about the holidays. Surround yourself with holiday brochures and maps and think about when and where you’d like to go and then go ahead and book it.
