The Monday of the last full week in January has been identified as the saddest day of the year. So-called “Blue Monday” was originally created as a marketing gimmick,* and even the creator of the concept has said we shouldn’t let it get us down. However, he continues to embrace his motivation in identifying the date: people should take this opportunity to do something positive to overcome the season, whether it’s planning a holiday trip as he was originally hired to promote or something else. One thing you can do this January to help yourself overcome the holiday blues is to finally get that smile makeover you’ve been considering for so long.

*Actually, the origins of the phrase “blue Monday” date back nearly two centuries. It re-entered the parlance of our times through Kurt Vonnegut’s 1973 novel Breakfast of Champions, where he uses it to refer ironically to labor-saving machines that could take away the work associated with laundry day, traditionally Monday. But blue Monday wasn’t used to refer to laundry day until the 1860s. Three decades earlier, the phrase was coined in a context more relevant to our modern usage. When workman were paid on Friday, they would go out and drink their wages away, coming back on Monday hungover and unproductive, so employers were blue because of all the work that wouldn’t be done, or would be done poorly.
