Welsh Boffin says today most depressing day

Other news sources reported this story about today being "Blue Monday," the most depressing day of the year.
A Welsh boffin has discovered the worst Monday of the year - and bosses beware, it's next week.

Psychologist Dr Cliff Arnall of Cardiff University has christened January 22 'Blue Monday', when post-Christmas fatigue kicks in, resolutions fall by the wayside and spring seems ages away.

What's more, the academic says the feeling will last all week as the lethal combination of miserable weather and astronomical credit card bills affects even the super-happy among us.
But this one is the only version of the story I've seen that credits the discovery to a boffin. Helps keep things in proportion.
