Monday January 16 is 2017's Blue Monday - the most depressing day of the year.
But there are ways you can cheer up yourself or a loved one.
A study by Grosvenor Casinos found that most Brits would be in a better mood if they found some money.
Finding a £5 note in their pocket would be a morale boost for 55% of British people, apparently.
The survey of 2,000 people found the best way of cheering up someone close to you:
- Surprise them with the gift of money (38% of Brits say the Blue Monday blues would be banished by winning money)
- Make time for your loved ones (32% of Brits say spending time with family and friends would raise their spirits)
- Give your staff the day off (17% of Brits say taking the day off work is the best way to avoid Blue Monday)
- Say something complimentary (5% of Brits say receiving a compliment will make Monday a good day)
- Chivalry rules (5% of Brits say a door being held for them would make their day)
- Play a game (3% of Brits say their woes would be eased if they won a game)
Waking up with Tom Hardy
Grosvenor Casinos found that 68% of people would hold a door open for someone who looked blue this Monday morning, and 44% would even buy a stranger a coffee on Blue Monday to cheer them up.
But there is a split among the sexes; where men will pay to bring happiness, women will go out of their way.
Nearly half of UK men would buy a stranger a coffee or pay for their travel to work if they looked down on Blue Monday.
Women are more likely to show gestures of kindness such as holding open doors and offering strangers an umbrella in the rain (42%).
Blue Monday can be made even worse for Brits, as 39% would be more miserable if they were splashed by a puddle from a passing lorry, if a stranger was rude to them (22%), or if they missed their train by just one minute (18%).
Waking up alone and wish someone was there to make Blue Monday less depressing?
Piers Morgan was voted the least appealing bed-mate, with 98% of Brits opposed to waking up with him, closely followed by Benedict Cumberbatch (91% against).
Conversely though, the majority of Brits would banish the blues by waking up with Tom Hardy or Emma Watson.
