Blue Monday is a name given to the Monday that falls on the last full week in January and was created by UK psychologist Cliff Arnall. Who needs a day to figure out that any Monday is depressing? Well, he thought one was needed and even created a mathematical formula for it. He credits bad weather, credit card bills after Christmas, broken New Year’s resolutions, and lack of motivation fuels his hypothesis.
These are pretty good reasons to feel sad, but those feelings should hopefully subside as each day passes. Every day is an opportunity to try again. Not only that, simple foods such as spinach and dark chocolate has ways of increasing serotonin in your body to help put a smile on your face.
Did you eat more than what you wanted to around the holidays and feeling a little blue yourself? Are you going to include more garlic in your food to help brighten your mood? Please leave a comment below.
