A Clif Bar Giveaway cuz They’re Delicious

So I just learned something new.

Did you know that the Monday of the last full week in January is called Blue Monday and is considered the most depressing day of the year? That’s this Monday – January 20 for those that are wondering when exactly you need to be depressed.


The reason for Blue Monday?

  • The holidays are over.
  • Credit card bills have arrived.
  • We’re back to 5-day work weeks.
  • New Year’s resolutions have failed.

So basically, we are all doomed this week.

Luckily I love Clif Bars. And even more luckily, they contacted me and want to give FIVE readers Clif Bar packs with their “Banish Blue Monday Woes with Clif Bar” promotion.


Clif recommends taking your workout outdoors for new motivation because it helps concentration, productivity, and releases endorphins to boost your mood. Or if you’re in a blizzard, get on the treadmill and I’ll post some Orlando pictures for you to look at longingly. That should help.


See? You’re feeling better already.

    I get Monday off for MLK day, so I don’t plan on being depressed about that. However, I suppose I can muster up some depression over my bum knee and the fact that you don’t get to come to Killeen for work anymore.

    P.S. Love the new ‘do!

  2. Kirsten says

    I too have Monday off, but since it’s 12 here in the CLE, I need some blues-busting.

    I’ve actually never had a Clif bar, but I see them everwhere.

    I have no reason to be depressed this Monday, I might have to work, but I get paid overtime because it’s a holiday. And then I don’t have to go to school the next day, because of said holiday.

      The Clif peeps are sending these out and didn’t give me any restrictions, so I think you’re good!

    This Monday is massage Monday, so I’ll be feeling good. It has been more than 10 years since I last ate a Cliff bar. Maybe I’ll win and give them another try.

  5. Ananda says

    Shoot, I’ve been depressed every Monday in January so far. I didn’t realize I was supposed to hold off until tomorrow.

  6. Libby says

    I’m off Monday for MLK day, so I will disagree with the blue Monday assessment! A cliff bar would make anyone’s day better!

    I have blue Monday off work (happy MLK day, kids). For me, the real blue Monday is next week…that’s when five day work weeks start big time. That’s when I’ll need a Clif!

    Having equally awful weather in California as Orlando. Will likely be depressed in summer when I have to take three minute showers…
