Blue Monday 2024: Every year on the third Monday of January, the event occurs. It is evident as we examine our credit card bills from Christmas that we may already be breaking our resolutions from last year. Will we be blue on this particular Monday? Please decide after reading on.

Blue Monday: A Brief History

Sky Travel was the first company to introduce the concept of Blue Monday in a news release in 2005 as part of a public relations campaign. According to psychologist Dr. Cliff Arnall, the third Monday in January is the most gloomy day of the year. This formula seems to be able to accurately identify the worst day of the year.

In Arnall’s model, various factors are taken into account, including the seasonal weather, people’s likely debt load, the length of time since Christmas and New Year’s resolutions, lower motivation levels, and urgency.

This hypothesis has been the subject of discussion since its introduction. Although it may appear reasonable in principle, some experts view it as pseudoscience. As a result, the formula’s scientific foundation is regularly challenged and closely examined for potential trivializing depression. Dr. Dean Burnett, an associate professor at the university where Arnall worked, has stated that there is no such thing as a 24-hour depression.

As Dr. Burnett points out, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of sadness that may appear throughout certain seasons. It is important to note that the illness is not a one-day phenomenon. In addition to feelings of worthlessness, anger, and a persistently depressed mood, SAD symptoms can affect up to 3% of the American population, affecting up to 10 million Americans.

Following this error, Arnall apologized for misinforming people about the potential depression risks associated with the third Monday of January, and has relaunched the campaign emphasizing the importance of preserving mental health and taking the necessary steps to achieve it.

Methods To Celebrate Blue Monday

Reasons Blue Monday is essential

Monitoring mental health

The day serves as a helpful reminder to assess your mental well-being if you’re feeling depressed. Speak with medical experts so they can diagnose the condition and choose the best course of action.

A prompt to get moving

We’re all aware that exercising elevates our mood. Don’t let the chilly weather and wintertime blues stop you from maintaining an exercise regimen. Many find that having a supportive partner makes it simpler to stay motivated and dedicated to following their fitness regimen.

Increasing the amount of vitamin D

Because we spend less time in the sun during the winter, our vitamin D levels might drop significantly, which can have a negative impact on our moods. A blood test or medical examination might be in order. Fortunately, nutrient-rich foods like egg yolks and fatty fish, as well as vitamin D pills, tend to be just as good for humans as exposure to the sun.
