    The most miserable day of the most depressing month of the year is just a week away, according to research.

    Psychologist Dr Cliff Arnalls has come up with a formula pinpointing Monday, January 24 as the gloomiest day of all.The Cardiff University expert weighed up the influence of a number of January-specific phenomena that ruin our mood.

    He blamed miserable weather, mounting debt, the length of time since Christmas and failed New Year's resolutions for the depressing day.

    The factors are compounded by a lack of motivation in the face of a need to take action.

    For those wishing to examine their woe further, the formula is [W+(D-d)]xTQ MxNA.

    It translates as weather (W), debt (D) (minus the amount of money to be paid on your next pay day) and the time (T) since Christmas.

    Then there is the period since the failure to quit (Q) a bad habit along with general motivational (M) levels and the need to take action (NA) to plan something to look forward to.


    It bloody is going to be a depressing day. I'm going to be back at college after two weeks off :(

    I doubt it, at best you'll end up puking and getting a hangover, at worst I expect you'll fall off a cliff....

    Interesting research.... but you can bet your bottom Euro I'll be as happy as lark when that day comes, for I live in a powerful and enigmatic Otherworld where the doom and gloom of the conventional dimension cannot venture. :p
