"Bluest Monday" - Ever

Experts say Monday, January 19, 2009, will go down as the most depressing day in history.


Cold weather, fading Christmas memories and broken New Year resolutions always make this a miserable time of year.


But the effects of the economic downturn makes this year worse than ever, reports the Daily Mail.


Millions were expected to feel so glum they would decide to stay in bed and up to a quarter of workers were expected to call in sick.


Psychologist Dr Cliff Arnall has devised a mathematical formula that pinpoints today as Blue Monday.


He says there are six depressive factors - winter weather, Christmas credit card bills, abandoned New Year's resolutions, job security fears, mounting debt and the house price collapse.


Dr Arnall, 43, a former Cardiff University academic, said: "The credit crunch means today is potentially the most depressing Blue Monday we have had."


Separate research by staff absence specialist FirstCare claims 22% of workers are likely to call in sick today as seasonal illness hits a peak.


And, William Hartson, a psychologist at Cambridge University, has devised a mathematical formula which marks today as the most likely for accidents.
