Blue Monday is frequently referred to as the most depressing day of the year.
Reasons behind this gloomy label include the post-Christmas blues, lack of funds after festive celebrations combined with a longer month, also the general melancholy mood that accompanies the start of a new year.
It’s also a day for personal reflection and assessment, which often spurs people on to consider their career potential and ultimately aims.
