Blue Monday

Did you know that some people designate Monday, January 23, as "Blue Monday," the most depressing day of the year?

It's based on a perfect storm of several factors, some of which are: 

            Weather - It's usually cold, gray, and dreary.
            Economics - The debt of all the holiday spending is really starting to weigh on us. 

            Confidence - Most of us have dropped the ball on any New Year's resolutions by now. 

            Outlook – The next official holiday is a loooong way off.

So rather than passively succumb to Blue Monday, stare it in the face and do something nice for yourself.

Have you heard the song, “Open Wide?” It's not what I usually listen to, but I love the lyrics in the chorus.

Open wide the arms you're given.
You're too alive to just stand still.
Open wide your heart as you breathe in.
You're too alive to just stay here.

The music video's kind of quirky but it grows on you.

Here's to enjoying your Blue Monday!
