15th January 2018

Happy Blue Monday!

Today is Blue Monday – statistically (apparently) the unhappiest day of the year.


Since just after the turn of the millennium, the 15th January has developed a Friday 13th style notoriety after allegedly becoming the focus of a university tutor’s formula which used factors such as the weather, debt levels and general motivation to gauge at what point of the year people felt at their unhappiest.


In the end the study was a joint venture between a genuine university tutor and a PR company, however the Blue Monday moniker stuck and people have since been using the occasion as a type of crossroads moment to make overdue changes and improvements in their lives.


Dr. Cliff Arnall, the university tutor in question, says of the day itself:


Whether embarking on a new career, meeting new friends, taking up a new hobby or booking a new adventure, January is actually a great time to make those big decisions for the year ahead.
