How did you feel today? I ask because the third Monday in January is considered to be the most depressing day of the year.
Is that fact or fiction? Well, it looks as if the belief arose from some academic research, which has since been discredited. No matter. The PR people jumped on it as a good way to sell holidays.
So, Blue Monday is no more than a publicity stunt. Feeling better?
I was appalled this morning in yoga class when the woman next to me kept checking her iPhone throughout class.
Perhaps I am being old fashioned but I still think there are some places where smartphones should remain in pockets/handbags and yoga classes are one.
