Today is supposed to be one of the most depressing days of the year, known as Blue Monday. Based on a calculation of weather in Northern Hemisphere, debt levels & ability to pay off debts, time elapsed since New Year's Resolutions etc. - it is probably a bit of hype too, but there is an element of truth in it, as many people struggle with the New Year and also with Springtime, because they become anxious that nothing in their lives will change for the better. Often the 3rd Monday in January, it is a time when the hype of the turn of the year has died down and IF you set resolutions, you might well have already abandoned them. You may even have a sneaking feeling of futility creeping in or even already suffered disappointments and setbacks early on in the year.
Some new year, you might be thinking! Can we please start 2019 again?!
