Beware next Monday. The 24th of January has been earmarked as being the most depressing day of the year by an expert on these things on the BBC site.
The formula for the day of misery reads 1/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA.
Where W is weather, D is debt – minus the money (d) due on January’s pay day – and T is the time since Christmas.
Q is the period since the failure to quit a bad habit, M stands for general motivational levels and NA is the need to take action and do something about it.
So, come next week and you’re stood on top of a multi-story carpark looking down on the hard pavement below you can take heart in the fact that your misery isn’t necessarily down to any failings on your part it’s just that the equation is making you miserable.
I just knew that maths was no good for you.
