Low mood and the January bluesMonday 17 January 2022
There are countless reasons why this might be the case – each as individual as any one of us. It might be triggered by financial worry post Christmas; a recent survey found that we are 28% more concerned about our finances in January 2022 compared to a typical month.
Equally, it may be caused by health anxiety, bereavement, heartbreak, stress at work, or illness – Covid or otherwise. Digital mental health service Kooth has seen a marked and continued increase in the prevalence of many of these presenting issues since the pandemic first hit. 39% of adults completing mental health questionnaires on the platform last year reported feeling down, depressed, or hopeless nearly every day – a 28% increase from the previous year.
It’s also important to note that there could be no obvious reason at all for low mood.
