Today is the most depressing day of the year? But I'm enjoying the holiday!
I heard first on Morning Edition, and then later in a report by Tim Riley, that today is the Gloomiest Day of the Year. They call it 'Blue Monday,' which is a pretty awesome title. There's some research to back it up from a leading psychologist. You can do the leg work if you're interested. I really just wanted to find this soundbite of advice Mr. Riley shared from said psychologist:
"Focus on the good things you do have in your life. If one of your limbs does not work, focus on the three that do."Ananova - Blue Monday
