Is Blue Monday the saddest day of the year?
Today, the 15th of January, is considered the most depressing day of the year. So if you got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, you burnt your breakfast toast and you seem to be feeling inexplicably blue today, don’t worry, there’s an explanation for all this.
Cliff Arnall, a psychologist from Cardiff University developed on 2005 a mathematical formula taking into account different factors he considered relevant. This formula revealed that the third Monday in January is the most depressing day of the year. The variables used by the psychologist were the following:
- Debts that need to be dealt with after Christmas;
- Time since Christmas;
- Time since starting to fail New Year’s resolutions;
- Motivation levels;
- January income;
- Need to make decisions.
Although one can easily think that this 'formula for sadness' lacks a scientific basis, it also seems difficult not to be sad on one of the first Mondays of the year, right after Christmas holidays and in the midst of Winter.
