Let’s get straight to the facts. January can be a slog of a month. Not only is it cold and dark, like all of the time, but we’re also overwhelmed with pressure to kickstart our happiest, healthiest year yet.

It comes as no surprise then that by the third Monday of every January many of us are struck by feelings of heavy gloom and low motivation. Otherwise known as, ‘Blue Monday’.

Calculated by experts as a mixture of bad weather, debt and broken New Year’s resolutions, Blue Monday is the day where we all collectively feel a little down in the dumps. Sigh.
