Good news! It’s the crummiest day of the year.
According to beatbluemonday.com, the formula for the worst day of the year was identified by some guy named Cliff who looked at the following factors: weather (W), debt (d), 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).
He sounds like a blast.
But man, does he have an impact. I informed a colleague who mentioned something about it being Monday about the alleged blueness of the day. It was comical, the way her shoulders slumped and her face fell instantly. Suggestion is a powerful thing indeed.
So here’s what I suggest: today, bubble baths and kind words and comfort foods for everyone. Embrace the weather! Go skating! Play in the snow! Floss your teeth or get some exercise or sign up to do that volunteer thingy or whatever your New Year’s resolution entails! There’s no way you could have failed it yet, you have a whole year for those things, don’t you? If new years resolutions were just meant to be worked on for a week or so, they’d just be called to do lists!
And cheer up, pets! If this is indeed the worst day of the year, at least tomorrow’s bound to be a better day.
