If you are feeling down than you may not be alone because today is 'Blue Monday' - the day of the year on which most of us feel at our lowest ebb.
Woes include travel chaos, feeling poor after Christmas, lack of daylight and failed New Year's resolutions, a general drop in motivation, the Daily Mail reported.
A report suggested that a major reason for a drop in motivation comes from the continued winter darkness after the brief highlights of Christmas and New Year.
A survey by Anglian Home Improvements into the impact of reduced daylight over the winter months found that the vast majority of us feel it has a negative impact on our wellbeing.
Their report claims 79 per cent of us feel that limited hours of daylight has a negative effect on our mood.
According to a spokesman for the company, which quizzed 2,000 respondents, the survey shows a clear link between natural daylight, mood and motivation.
