Getting Through Blue Monday With @BahlsenBiscuits

As you all probably already know, we’re big fans of Bahlsen over here at Vivre Le Rêve. In fact, I couldn’t think of a better brand to go to for a little pick me up on what is set to be the bluest day of the year, Blue Monday. But what is Blue Monday? Blue Monday is calculated using a series of factors in a mathematical formula.

The factors are: the weather, debt level, the amount of time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take charge of the situation.

It’s been calculated that Blue Monday 2018 will be January 15 this year. The date is generally reported as falling on the third Monday in January. But can also fall on the second or fourth Monday, or even the Monday of the last week of January. The first one was January 24 in 2005.

Yes, January can feel the worst month of the year. And all this misery comes to a head on Blue Monday. The New Year has started and sadly, the festive season is now a distant memory. You will probably have taken your Christmas decorations a while ago which means the darker days will feel even gloomier. We think that today is the perfect excuse to grab your duvet and hunker down with some delicious Pick UP Mini Biscuits from Bahlsen!
