This is the calculation for figuring out the most depressing day of the year. How in the world does that work? Well…weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na.
Is this real? No, of course not. In fact, “Blue Monday” began as a publicity campaign by a British television channel that no longer exists. But since the campaign was launched less than a decade ago, the pseudoscience behind “Blue Monday” has taken on a life all unto it’s own by being promoted on radio stations and television programs all over the world as the Monday on the last full week of January, aka “the most depressing day of the year”.
While some may use this as an excuse to become further depressed, I refuse to let that happen to me. Instead, I’m going to use it as motivation to have the best day I possibly can. I’m going to smile, I’m going to laugh, and I’m going to look at all of the positive things that are going on in my life.
Why? Because LIFE IS GOOD!
