Today is 'Blue Monday', recalling how sadness 'needs living'

Psychiatrists say 'saddest day of year' can be positive

Today is 'Blue Monday', recalling how sadness 'needs living'

Rome, January 18 - The so-called 'Blue Monday,' purportedly the 'saddest day of the year' falling on the third Monday of January, today, fuelled a rash of Twitter activity by Italians as local psychiatrists suggested sadness be re-evaluated. "Evidently people are in a vile mood because this falls on a Monday," said Claudio Mencacci, president of the Italian Psychiatrists' Society (SIP), "perhaps it would be different if Blue Monday was on a Saturday or Sunday". "Sadness is an emotion that should be lived as such and this day in a sense 'revalues,' it," he added, noting that sadness is very different from depression "which is a real illness that is still treated too little. Depression needs to be talked about more". The notion of 'Blue Monday' as the third Monday in January was conceived by Cliff Arnall, a psychologist from the University of Cardiff in Wales. At the start of the last decade he made a complex equation to determine the darkest day, taking into account variables such as the weather, debts run up at Christmas, a drop in motivation after the Festive season. In Britain reportedly it also marks the day with the highest level of absenteeism from work.
