Blue Monday, apps to overcome the saddest day of the year

There may be nothing worse than thinking about Mondays, the day that heralds the start of a new week. Many face it with optimism, thinking that it is another week with new opportunities and in which things will turn out well, but others take it with the heaviness of thinking that there are still five days left to return to the weekend. The case is that today is the saddest day of the year with the Blue Monday, which is why we are going to give you some apps to get you through the day.

Why is today Blue Monday?

Today is a hard day for many for the mere fact of being Monday, but there is a reason why it is also a sad and gray day. Today is Blue Monday a term coined in 2005 by Professor Cliff Arnall of Cardiff University. In his formula he included an operation among which he included the climatic factor, the debts carried over from Christmas, the January pay as well as the motivation and the need to do something.

Yes, it seems that all this can be measured, and the result is that in January there is usually a blue day that falls on a Monday. In contrast, there is also a Yellow Day, which is the happiest day of the year, but we will be happy about that another day.
