Today Is Most Depressing Day Of The Year, According To Study

Posted: Updated:

If you're feeling a bit blue today, well researchers at Upbeat say that there's a reason why. It's Blue Monday.

It's officially the most depressing day of the year: the holidays are over; you have to go back to work and the weather outside is gloomy.

Researchers used factors including debt levels, failed new year's resolutions and weather conditions and analyzed more than two million tweets for negative language and phrases indicating drop in mood.

And if that's not bad enough, today has also been dubbed divorce Monday by legal experts. Experts say that financial pressures, excess alcohol, disagreements with in-laws and rows over chores are top reasons why relationship counselors see more clients around this time of the year.
