Today Is Officially The Most Miserable Day Of The Year

If you’re feeling a little down in the dumps today and you can’t work out why, there’s an explanation that at least might put it all into perspective for you.

January 15 is officially the most miserable day of 2018 and is known as ‘Blue Monday’.

There’s even a fancy calculation that proves its the most depressing day of the year.

It’s a combination of factors that make the third Monday of the year the bloody worst, including recognition that Christmas really is over, and that we’ve spent all of our money celebrating - oh, and we’re pretty much all officially back at work.

There’s also a calculation that proves how heinous this day is, and it’s due to a number of variables, like weather - and finances. That calculation goes something like this: [W + (D-d)] x Tq ÷ [M x Na].

Uh huh.

‘W’ stands for weather, ‘D’ for debt, ‘d’ refers to the monthly salary, ‘T’ the time since Christmas, ‘q’ the period since we’ve broken our New Year’s resolutions, ‘M’ for motivational levels while ‘Na’ is the feeling of a need to take action. If that all sounds a little bit confusing, the general idea seems to be that on this day all the bad stuff in our lives outweighs the good stuff.

Have a HAPPY DAY...
