Today is Blue Monday – the most depressing day of the year. It is distinguished by a depressed mood, unsuccessful decisions, low levels of motivation, and general anxiety. The determination of the date of Blue Monday is influenced by various factors: “weather conditions, debt level (the difference between debt accumulated and our ability to pay), time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action,” the specialists explained.
It turns out that the theory of the most depressing day was a marketing ploy by the travel company Sky Travel, which was trying to increase sales of tours to southern countries in this way. And although the theory is pseudoscientific, people began to take it seriously over the 15 years of its existence. There are even events in the UK to help maintain mental health.
