Monday the 20th January brings us Blue Monday: apparently the most depressing day of the year. The day earned its melancholy title due to the day’s time since Christmas, likelihood of being overwhelmed by debts and failed new year’s resolutions, as well as bad weather.
However, the infamous day is not all it seems. If you’re feeling low today, don’t fear. It’s likely to be down to a series of calculations claimed to be true but were actually part of a PR stunt for Sky Travel. Calculations where said to be a combination of factors such as low motivational levels and time since Christmas.
If you are feeling the effects of Blue Monday, there are many charities out there ready and willing to help you in any way that they can. The Samaritans, for example, are just one of the many great charities that offer 24/7 support.
The Mental Health Foundation urges people to commit random acts of kindness every day of the year, but especially this day. Not only can it make someone else’s day brighter, but it is proven that acts of kindness towards someone else can also make you happier, too. The Foundation also urges people to keep note of acts of kindness that other people to for them.
