Worst Day of the Year According to Math

Here's the AFP Report:

Watch out: Monday, January 23 is going to be the unhappiest day of the year, according to a British university researcher.

Cliff Arnall, a health psychologist at the University of Cardiff, specialising in confidence-building and stress management, told AFP the prediction was the result of some gruelling mathematics.

Post-Christmas blues, the return to work after the holidays, mounting bills to pay for the parties, the challenge of keeping New Year's resolutions, the slender prospects of fun in the weeks ahead and chilly winter temperatures for those in the northern hemisphere all add up, he said.

These factors, which he combined in a complex formula, came out showing that the Monday closest to January 24 would be the most dismal of the year.

He quizzed several hundred people for the investigation.

So now we know, would we not have been better off without the bad news?

Not at all, according to Arnall.

Those in the know are in a better position to beat the blues, he insisted.

"You can us it as a springboard to make changes. It can encourage people," he said.

However, those in misery on Monday at least have something to look forward to.

According to the same mathematical formula, June 23 is the happiest day of the year
