There is a particular day in the year that is considered here in the UK as the saddest time of the year. That day has been aptly called the Blue Monday.
After careful studies and consideration, it was reckoned that the third Monday of January is Blue Monday.
Factors used to determine this particular day were the following:
- The weather, it is dank, cold and dark.
- The euphoria of Christmas and New Year are definitely over. Only memory left was extra weight in your belly and hips and cheeks.
- Time for all the credit card bills to come in and the ability to pay the bills or incur debts.
- Natural motivational level after the holiday season.
This year Blue Monday falls on 15 January.
