Today has been dubbed the saddest day of the year.
But Science says that’s a lie.
I guess I should first explain what Blue Monday is.
The third Monday in January was once named the most depressing day of the year due to the accumulation of crap weather, massive credit card debt from the holidays, and failed New Year’s resolutions.
Apparently it was first issued by a man who goes by “Dr. Cliff Arnall” – and he even has a real math equation to go for it (CLICK HERE)
But some people say it’s BS and just a publicity stunt for companies like airlines and travel agencies.
I think regardless of what science or research is behind it, we can all agree that January can be kind of depressing.
The reasons make sense too – my credit card bill from December just came in and I almost cried.
So, what can make it better?
Happiness researcher Gillian Mandich (yes, I kid you not, that is her real title) shared some tips with CTV news that include faking it ’till you make it and getting outside.
You know what else can make you feel better? Always having a warm car to get into during the winter.
