Christians Against Poverty have shared an article entitled “Blue Monday: facts v. fiction”. Blue Monday is next Monday and it is considered to be the most depressing day of the year- which is a bit worrying. Whether it is broken New Years Resolutions, the stress of going back to work after a brilliant Christmas or the realisation that the bill still need to be paid – Blue Monday isn’t confined to one individual day and it isn’t something to take lightly.

CAP are an organisation who are dedicated to helping people deal with their budgeting and debt. So if your piggy bank is empty this Monday here are some words to help you face Blue Monday.

Mondays don’t make us blue. On average, CAP gets the most calls for help on a Monday in any given week.

Mondays are the days when people decide to make a big change to their life and that’s reason to celebrate.

Here’s another fact: our busiest months are November and February, peaking around the second Monday in February. We think this is simply because people don’t want to organise a visit to their homes in the run up to Christmas, or when their children are off school. So, all the calls we’d normally have over December come along instead during January and February. Credit card bills don’t arrive until six weeks after Christmas and at that stage people know just how bad things are looking, so it may be as simple a reason as that.

At CAP, a busy day is a good day because the more people who call us, the more people we can help. To read the rest of this article please click here.
