because people speak English
TODAY is Blue Monday, the single most depressing day of the year.
The Monday of the last week in January was first named 'Blue Monday' in 2005.
And it is said that a British "psychologist and life coach" has got a mathematical equation to support the idea that today is the gloomiest day of the year. His formula uses variables including levels of debt, time since Christmas, bad weather, low motivational levels and "time since failing our new year's resolutions" to identify the bleakest day of the year.
Despite its origins, Blue Monday has become a favorite story for journalists to fill their columns on this day of January.
But, the whole concept is purely a public relations tactic originally used to sell vacations. Many say that that formula is just 'Bad Science'.
So, how are feeling today? If down, blame it on Blue Monday. To me, all Mondays are the same and chances that I feel down on any of them are equal.
