Its amazing how labels can affect your mind. Today, has been calculated to be ‘Blue Monday’, the most depressing day of the year.
If you were to find a friend saying that they ‘felt blue’ you would understand that they were not feeling their best at the moment. If they were to say they were ‘seeing red’ you might consider them to be feeling angry.
However, in reality, these are just colours, it’s the feelings, emotions and generalisations that we have attached to these terms that cause us to feel about or understand the terms in the way we do.
Today might be labelled as ‘Blue Monday’, but it could also be, a good day at work, a day you saw a friend or a day you took a moment for yourself.
