Interview: Tips For A Better Outlook On 'Blue Monday'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- If the cold weather and maybe all those bills you racked up during the holiday season have you feeling a little bit down, you're not alone.

Jan. 18 this year has been coined "Blue Monday," the most depressing day of the year.

Psychotherapist Diane Lang stopped by the CBS2 studios with tips on how to get out of that slump.

"The truth is there's not much science behind it," Lang said of Blue Monday. "They do claim it is the most depressing day of the year. But the truth is it's somewhat of a depressing time. Between the winter blues -- we have the colder days, the shorter days -- and about three weeks into January, all your credit card bills come in from the holidays. ... Or New Year's resolutions, they come and go."
