How Are You Feeling Today?
I thought I should provide a free mental health check, since today is the infamous Blue Monday. That's the day experts have identified as the most depressing day of the year.
(They took six factors into account when searching for the gloomiest day: bad weather, high levels of debt, the number of days since Christmas, the number of days since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take action.)
This year, the state of the economy may make Blue Monday, 2009 the worst in history! Low spirits will inspire a high percentage of people to play hooky from work/school, and accidents of all sorts will be far more likely to occur. So I recommend that we all stay in bed today!
What? You're already out of bed? How brave of you! Please feel free to share your feelings with the rest of us.
