Feeling like you’re having an extra bad case of the Mondays and are not sure why? It’s probably because today is the most miserable day of the year, according to researchers.
Based on a theory done by UK psychologist Cliff Arnall, the third Monday in January, dubbed "Blue Monday," is when people are feeling most down. The lack of holidays coming up, failed New Year’s resolutions, and the increasing colder temperatures outside have lead people to lose motivation and feel depressed, the study suggests.
