Depression Is Coming: January 17th
Not sure how much I believe this story, but I may be a bit bias as my Birthday is in later January so I can't be all that depressed. I get their point though, and maybe there is a way to get around the funk of the January February? What do you do to help get yourself through till spring?
According to a psychologist in Wales, this Monday, January 17th, is the most DEPRESSING day of the year. It's also Martin Luther King Day but . . . uh . . . hey, I guess it can be two things.
--Dr. Cliff Arnall says he figured out that the third Monday of the year is the most depressing day of the year because of all kinds of bad news converging on that day . . .
--The weather sucks.
--It's been long enough since Christmas and your vacation that your good feelings from them have worn off.
--Your Christmas credit card debt becomes a reality.
--You've started struggling or you've already failed on your New Year's resolutions.
--And your next vacation feels so, so, so far away.
--The happiest day of the year, according to Arnall, is the third Friday in June. This year it'll be June 17th.
