How to beat Blue Monday

January 16, 2017   //   No Comments

According to website, The third Monday of January has been awarded the gloomy title of Blue Monday due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid credit card bills.   Apparently, a university professor managed to precisely calculate the most depressing day of the year, using the following formula:

frac{[W + D-d] T^Q}{M N_a}

Where 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. ‘D’ is not defined in the release, nor are units.

Supposedly the date was calculated by using many factors, including weather conditions, debt level (the difference between debt accumulated and our ability to pay), time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action.

Many of us are just too busy to have time to worry about such things, but if things are getting you down, click here for 10 suggestions to help you beat Blue Monday.
