A Facebook friend of mine got up this morning and went straight to social media, writing, "Ugh.  January.  The whole month is just a giant Monday."

I wonder if she knows this is Blue Monday.

It's the 3rd Monday in January.  We're all suffering from a lack of daylight and many are worried about the debt we incurred over the Holiday Season.  Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year.

A travel company made it up a few years ago as a way to get us thinking about a tropical holiday.

If that's not in the cards for you, take some advice from the mental health experts.  They're telling us to get some fresh air and daylight today.  They also recommend we take time to smile at people and reflect on the good things we have in our lives.  It'll give you new energy and optimism.

Good luck with that today and I'll talk to you on Tuesday.  As of tomorrow, we'll only have 56 days until spring.

Did that cheer you up?  Ya, me neither.
