WE'RE A GLOOMY BUNCH TODAY

TODAY is the most depressing day of the year, according to a scientist.

The gloomy weather, mounting debt and failed New Year's resolutions all add up to a severe bout of the blues, says psychologist Dr Cliff Arnall.

And he also believes the length of time since Christmas, a lack of motivation and a need to take action all conspire to make us glum.

The organisers of one of the UK's biggest volunteering campaigns have suggested people can beat the blues by getting involved with charitable organisations.

Research for the Community Service Volunteers' Make A Difference Day- held every October-says half of people who have volunteered for more than two years feel less depressed.

And 63 per cent of 25 to 34-year-olds say they feel less stressed after volunteering.

Cardiff University expert Dr Arnall backed up the findings of the CSV survey, which was commissioned in partnership with Barclays Bank.


He said: "Keeping physically and mentally active can often improve your state of mind and helping others can sometimes boost self esteem.


"Volunteering, especially if done on a regular basis, is a great way to feel happier."


Rachel Barber, of Barclays, said 10,000 of their staff took part in CSV Make A Difference Day on October 28 last year.


She said: "It motivates our staff, helps them work better together and generally makes for happier employees."

This tread is TOO uplifting and doesn't belong on a doom and gloom site.

WHAT is GLP becoming ?

Put that pin DOWN mod, and back slowly away from this thread ! :)
