Did you know that this coming Monday (16th January) is known as Blue Monday?
The media love to pick up on this day and label it the most depressing day of the year. Some websites even quote a university professor (although they don’t say which University!) who has managed to back this statement up using the following formula:
- 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. However ‘D’ is not defined in the release, nor are units.
Whilst it may seem obvious that some of us will feel down, crashing from the buzz and hype of Christmas, disappointed at ourselves for already breaking those New Year Promises and because of the cold, especially with all the talk of snow and Siberian winds, but why do we feel that blue is a bad thing?
There are many beautiful natural phenomena that are blue; the sky, the sea and, of course, flowers! Blue is not only a soothing and calming colour, it is apparently the world’s favourite colour, according to the Colour Affects website.
So why not bring warmth into your home with one of our stunning blue bouquets – this is the Spring Bucket of Garden Hyacinth & Narcissi Blooms:
Or maybe something new and wild will bring happiness to anyone suffering from the winter blues, with this Bundle of Wild Spring Flowers in a churn:
As Vincent Van Gogh once said “There is no blue without yellow and orange”, so don’t forget the warmth and cheer of the other spring colours with Bella’s Flower Garden of Roses, Freesia and Tulips or a bucket of Tulip Rainbow Love:
Why not spread the love on Blue Monday and let The Flower Studio brighten up any day with the warm blues, yellows, pinks and purples of our Spring Collection.
