It’s the perfect storm of buzz kills, bummers, downers and drags.

Mathematicians have calculated that today, the third Monday in January, is “Blue Monday,” the most miserable work day of the year.

Their complicated formula factors in:

  • the weather
  • your debt
  • the length of time since Christmas
  • breaking your New Year’s resolutions
  • the time until your next paycheck
  • low motivational levels
  • the feeling of a need to take action

However, scientists say if you enjoy your job and the people you work with, getting through the day is a whole lot easier.

Another option is to sneak out and clear your head by taking a quick walk around the block.
