Most Depressing Day of the Year

As we all say goodbye to Christmas for another year, we are left with an empty bank, an ever increasing waistline, dull and cold weather and a challenging return to the grind… is it any wonder that the most depressing day of the year “Blue Monday” is in the middle of January!

Fun Furniture To Turn That Frown Upside-Down


Metro gives us the science behind the saddest day of the year…

“Why is Blue Monday the most depressing day of the year? In the formula published by Dr Arnall, variables such as weather conditions, debt, the end of Christmas, failed New Year’s resolutions and low motivation levels all contribute to a mass depression culminating on Blue Monday. To be clear, the formula has been derided by scientists as ‘nonsensical’ and the entire thing is without scientific merit. But it is one of the most successful PR campaigns of all time. Dr Arnall is a life coach and his intention was never meant to contribute to the negative stigma associated with the day. He actually wants people to have a more positive outlook and look forward to the year ahead.”
