Brace yourselves, people, today is believed by many to be the most depressing day of the year (yes, somehow even more so than the rest of 2021 so far).
Christened Blue Monday, the theory is that a unique cocktail of factors – ranging from freezing weather and post-Christmas financial blues to New Year optimism being capsized by broken resolutions – converge to make the third Monday of every January an extremely miserable one. And let’s not lose sight of the fact that for many people the struggle with mental health is a 24/7, 365 affair. With all of this in mind, and whatever you’re contending with right now – be it grief, heartbreak, depression and anxiety – we’ve compiled some songs that might just help you power through it. Some express how you’re feeling at your absolute lowest ebb, others will pick you up off the floor. All of them are K! classics. Press play.
