blue monday

Monday 15th January is supposed to be the most depressing day of 2018, according to a formula created back in 2005 to encourage people to book holidays in January.

The date is calculated using a series of factors in a (not particularly scientific) mathematical formula. The factors are: the weather, debt level (specifically, the difference between debt and our ability to pay), the amount of time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take charge of the situation.

Although since it’s creation, it has been proved not to be true, the factors used to make it up are still pretty factual, and although it may not be the most depressing day of the year, in January you may find the need to get out of the house and do something fun with friends and family.

Christmas & New Year have been and gone, the bank account is somewhat depleted and everyone seems to be doing either Dry January, or Veganuary, so  your social life is at an all time low. If, like many, you’re torn between saving and wanting to get out and about, we’ve come up with a list of some of the best hotel, restaurant & spa special offers to tempt you if you are fancying a treat.
