Blame it on "Blue Monday?"

Feeling a bit out of sorts this morning?  Blame it on "Blue Monday!!"
The third Monday in January has a bad reputation ... the holidays may be over and the bills have arrived, skies are grey, days are short, and our New Years' resolutions, which looked so promising on the first, are looking less doable by the third monday of the month, TODAY!

What to do?  Make a Plan!
I've come to realize that, for me, it's all about the "Process."  I've been setting goals for many years and frequently felt like I'm trying to dig myself out of a sandy pit.  This may have been because I've focused on the goals without giving due regard to the process ... those daily, baby steps, those necessary habits that will, if I follow them and stay the course, lead me steadily in the direction I wish to go!

Ready to make a plan? Send me a message or call me ... I'll bet we can do this together!

By Luke Salkeld, 20 January 2013 

How are you feeling today? Chances are, not that great...
Because this morning you woke up on what has come to be known as ‘Blue Monday’ - the day of the year on which most of us feel at our lowest ebb.
There is indeed not much going for the third Monday of the year.
Feeling blue: The third Monday of the year is the day on which most of us feel at our lowest ebb
Feeling blue: The third Monday of the year is the day on which most of us feel at our lowest ebb
If you struggled with travel chaos this chilly morning, that will only have added to the woes that come from feeling poorer after an expensive Christmas and minimal hours of daylight.
Added to failed New Year’s resolutions, a general drop in motivation, and the summer far away in the future, you could be forgiven for not wanting to get out of bed at all.
