    Today, January 6, 2014, is officially the worst day of the year according to academic and social media experts.

    Today is Blue Monday—supposedly the worst day of the year according to study done by academic Cliff Arnall in 2005.  Arnall came up with this classification based on weather conditions, debt levels, failed New Year’s resolutions and the number of days that had passed the end of Christmas.  It other words—reality hits today kids.  But more research confirmed Blue Monday.  A three year analysis of tweets revealed that today there will be almost five times the average number of tweets relating to guilt about being unhealthy, weather complaints will be six time higher, and men will actually feel more miserable than women.
