If you're having a bad day, you aren’t alone. Researchers say today, the first Monday of 2014, is the most depressing day of the year.
 
A British study of 2-million tweets over the past three Januarys reveals this day has the lowest happiness score of the year.
 
The blue mood is blamed mostly on returning to work and school after the holiday break but there was also a huge increase in posts about breaking resolutions, being tired, not having any money and disliking the cold weather.
 
The report found women tend to be more positive than men throughout the month of January.
