A (not so) Blue Monday

What is Blue Monday?

The third Monday of every January has developed a name for itself - Blue Monday. Thought to be the most depressing day of the year, Blue Monday was created back in 2005 by Sky Travel Shop, a television channel devoted exclusively to programs about travelling, documentaries, and ads for travel companies. It was published by a man named Cliff Arnall, who was a tutor at the "Centre for Lifelong Learning", a Further Education centre attached to Cardiff University.

But is it really blue?

Well - there is a lot of speculation over the accuracy of Blue Monday. The formula is based on the factors that are the most likely to contribute to low mood, which are:

W = Weather

D = Debt

d = Monthly salary

T = Time since Christmas

Q = Time since failing our new year's resolutions

M = Low motivational levels

Na = The feeling of a need to take action
