The third Monday of January in the Northern Hemisphere has been awarded the gloomy title of “Blue Monday” due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights and the arrival of unpaid bills.

However as we all know “Blue Monday” could be any day of the year for any of us. Very few people are immune to feeling gloomy sometimes. So what can you do to turn gloomy days into blooming days?

Happy Monday
