According to Dr Cliff Arnall, today is the most depressing day of the year. Dr. Arnall is a psychologist and former tutor at Cardiff University. Being the little smarty pants that he is, he has used mathematical equations to reach his verdict.
There are many reasons it’s supposed to be so blue. First things first, our holiday spending (or credit carding) has probably caught up with us. We still continue to go to work when it’s dark and then drive home when it’s dark. We’ve also broken most if not all of our New Year’s resolutions. You know what? I don’t need no stinkin’ mathematical equations to tell me I should be blue today. The reasons above are enough.
But wait, I’m not really blue today. I have a little case of “Damn, it’s Monday. I’m having a hard time getting going”. But it’s certainly not a case of the “knock down-haul me off to bed now” blues.
So, check in with me folks…how is your Blue Monday? Blue? Deep Marine Blue? I can’t get out of bed, Midnight Blue?
In the meantime, here’s some internet fun to possibly cheer you….
