‘Blue Monday’

Blue Monday

“Monday is like a math problem. Add the irritation, subtract the sleep, multiply the problems, divide the happiness.”     Unknown

Each year or even once in 6 months or even once in 3 months or some times once in a week some new research findings are released about some observation.

The opinion expressed may or may not be true.( The findings are based in reaching out to population and trying to figure out by certain questionnaires)

Some argue that now a days  some of the researches have become commercialized. (there can be attractive advertisements on Blue Monday  day)

However these findings appear interesting.

What is Blue Monday ?

Blue Monday is 3 rd Monday of January said to be most depressing day of the year  (don’t ask me why & how accurate this day is since this day can also be 2nd,4 th or last Monday of January as per the researchers……see the wide gap !

Wikipedia-Blue Monday

Why it is said to be most depressing day of the year ?


  • you are no more in festive mood.
  • By now you emptied your savings.
  • you are disillusioned.
  • You are not sure of fulfilling your new year resolutions.

You are in an ideal environment for the depression to strike you.

What best you can do about ‘Blue Monday’ ?

To come out of this you must stop checking the advertisements ( specially made of Blue Monday ) which lure you in a variety of ways,in the form of tourism,special diets,therapies etc,instead concentrate on exercises at least 30 minutes  day and look for ways to improve your mental health .

    When you’re retired you don’t know what day it is anyway so any colour Monday just doesn’t exist!

    It probably depends where you live. I would think that in western Canada people are more likely to feel down in February as the winter has gone on for so long and it’s still a while till the hot weather arrives.
