I woke up this morning and was interested to hear that today is Blue Monday where motivation is at its lowest, new years resolutions get broken and apathy sets in.
According to a press release by a mental health charity,the formula is:
where weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na. ‘D’ is not defined in the release, nor are units.
The date was calculated by using many factors, including: weather conditions, debt level (the difference between debt accumulated and our ability to pay), time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action.

However surely it is about our own Positive Mental Attitude, the fact that we have achieved what we set our selves, not what we haven’t. If you are struggling with fitness and wellbeing here are some top tips;
Remember why you want to be fitter / slimmer/ have more energy and write 3 bullet points.
Who you are doing it for, visualise yourself, make the vision colourful and bright of you realising your goal.
When you set realistic goals you get results – keep it simple.
Where you exercise will have a huge impact on your results make sure you create a positive space and own it.
Stay focussed, be the brilliant person that you are and when those negative thoughts come creeping in blast them with your PMA!
For me Blue Monday only means one thing, my favourite song by New Order and the turbo juice that I was going to have to kick start my Motivational Monday.
