Blue Monday

"Feeling a little blue in January is normal." ~ Marilu Henner

For the past few years, I have heard the third Monday of January referred to as "Blue Monday." Apparently, researches have devised a formula accounting for variables such as weather, post-holiday debt, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year’s resolutions, low motivation levels, and feeling the need for change and action to determine that today is one of the hardest days of the year. 

What would cheer you up on this Blue Monday? A vacation, good book, a walk in the freshly fallen snow? This evening, perhaps a boat drink would help -- this is juniper after all. Now all we need is tonic and lime!
