Today is NOT the worst day of the year!
For those of you living in the UK (and other northern hemisphere countries), you may be surprised to know that today, the first working day of the new year, is NOT the worst day of the year. According to an article in the Daily Telegraph, the worst day of the year is yet to come:
An expert in winter disorders first identified January as the most stressful month. Now Cliff Arnall, a health psychologist at Cardiff University, has devised a formula to work out the worst day of the year and has come up with Jan 23 for 2006.
His calculation is based on the poorest weather, debts owed for seasonal spending, the time since Christmas, the period of time before you abandon New Year's resolutions, the dates when motivation levels seems to be at their lowest and the timing for the need for action to escape the blues.
So, how many of those New Year’s resolutions have you abandoned already? And how much weight have you put on?
