Just take it easy…. (you’re not alone)
“Blue Monday, how I hate blue Monday/Got me workin’ like a slave all day
Here comes Tuesday, oh hard Tuesday/I’m so tired, I’ve got no time to play
Here come Wednesday I’m beat to my side/My girl calls, I gotta tell her that I’m out
‘Cause Thursday is a hard-workin’ day and Friday I get my pay
Saturday morning, oh, Saturday morning/All my tired has gone away
Got my money and my honey/And I’m out on the scene to play
Sunday morning my head is bad/But it’s worth it, all the times I had
But I’ve got to get my rest/Cause Monday is a mess”
– sung by Fats Domino, written by Dave Bartholomew
Blue Monday is typically the third Monday of January reported to be the most depressing day of the year…
Seasonal depression factors (bad weather, holiday bills, politics, etc.) are coming together this year on Blue Monday and additional concerns make 2017’s this Blue Monday even more depressing than other years.
“The deaths of so many celebrities, many in their 50s and 60s, has also worried people by reminding them of their own mortality.”
NOTE: The day after election day, November 9, 2016, overall happiness fell to around 55 points, the lowest ever recorded since the app began, and lower than any other Blue Mondays according to the Mappiness database.
“In almost six and a half years, there has been no day more miserable than Wednesday 9 Nov, the day the US election was called for Donald Trump.”

“DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!” – Bobby McFerrin
You might want to sing it note-for-note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy Don’t worry, be happy now
Woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-ooo Be happy
Woo-oo-oo-oo-ooo Don’t worry, be happy!”
‘Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
Don’t worry, be happy!”
