Blue Monday

Blue Monday is a name given to a date in January considered to be the most depressing day of the year.

This year Blue Monday is January 18th. The date was devised using the following 'mathematical' formula:

Blue Monday

Weather (W), debt (d), time since Christmas (T), time since failing our new year's resolutions (Q), low motivational levels (M), and the feeling of a need to take action (Na). Essentially, the Christmas glow has faded away, New Year's resolutions have been broken, cold winter weather has set in and credit card bills arrive.

To combat the 'blue feeling', WRH will play Walking on Sunshine at random times throughout the day. It will be a little reminder that Spring is around the corner. We are living and working through difficult times. Feel free to take a minute to dance, sing, and generally act silly with your colleagues when you hear it playing.
