Got the winter blues?
How are you feeling after the Christmas festivities? Back at work? Got a cold? Summer seems like a long way off? You may feel a bit fed up – down in the dumps. Don’t worry, you’re not alone…
Does this mean anything to you?
It’s OK, I haven’t gone all mathematical – if the truth be known, my maths GCSE was achieved through extra lessons and the skin of my teeth. No – this is the pseudo-scientific formula used to calculate ‘blue Monday’ – the most miserable day of the year.
Here is the key to it:
Time since Christmas=T,
Time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q,
Low motivational levels=M and the
Feeling of a need to take action=Na
D – Feel good factor
As you can see it’s complete nonsense – but this year, the international day of misery is set to fall on 21st January. Which brings me to the point of this post.
Cheer up – it’s nearly spring.
And besides, we live in Cornwall. Reserve your pity for our smog bound brothers and sisters of the cities. While they battle through traffic and crowds – we can go for long walks by the sea.
Happy New Year one and all, and may 2013 bring you good things. I’m going to paint, write and enjoy myself right up to the hilt – hope you do too.
