According to scientists the third Monday in January is the most depressing day of the year!
I find it very interesting to read about it, as I don’t know about you but I haven’t really felt that much different.
Would I have experienced the day differently if I wasn’t aware about it – would it have been different I wonder?
Have I, subconsciously, been fighting the depressing feeling that I, according to the scientists and media should have experienced that day?
So why is the third Monday in January branded as the most depressing day?
Well here are a couple of examples that scientists are using to calculate the most depressing day.
- Most of us realise that we have failed our New Year resolutions.
- The Christmas debt has revealed itself.
- It’s cold, dark and wet outside.
- It’s still months away before people go on holiday again.
In my personal opinion I don’t believe that one day can be more depressing than the next.
What about the day or week(s) after? Will the depression just disappear overnight? – No I didn’t think so.
Let me give you a few tips to avoid the blue Monday feeling that potentially could linger on far longer.
- Seek support! – With help from others or people who would like to achieve the same will make everything so much easier. It will increase your motivation. Hypnotherapy or other tools and techniques could help you with achieving your goals. Contact me to find out more.
- Realize that making a change is not a New Year’s thing. You can do that at any given moment.
- Stay focussed on what you would like to achieve
- Don’t give up – You have not failed. You fail when giving up!
These are just a few items that could help you in making that change to your life.
Easier said than done?
Isn’t there a saying “where there is a will there is a way?”
It’s all about commitment! – How committed are you??
