January 1st Is Meaningless.

May 18th, however, has all the meaning in the world.

Well, not quite. A tutor (and specialist in Happiness) has devised a formula to determine the best day to come up with resolutions that have the best chance of being achieved. And that day, according to the formula, is May 18th.

I personally don’t have much faith in the formula, but it can’t be any worse a time than January first, and it certainly could be a better day. Who knows?

(The person who devised this formula also determined that January 24th is the most depressing day of the year.)
