Brits are looking forward to 10.21am on March 24 – the precise moment they expect spirits to lift after the dreary winter months, new research has revealed.
The study, by Yakult Light, found the January blues have a significant impact, revealing we desperately miss a host of things – such as spring flowers coming into bloom, spending time in pub gardens and the smell of freshly cut grass.
January’s unpopularity is confirmed as three in four of us (76 per cent) admit it is when we are most likely to need a mood boost following December’s festivities.
More than half (52 per cent) say this is due to the cold and wet weather with 64 per cent saying the thing they most miss is longer daylight hours.
Almost half (46 per cent) of us feel tired and lacking in energy, 43 per cent say it makes us irritable and 41 per cent of Brits are less sociable as a result.
As a result, Brits cannot wait for the start of spring in March and the activities which warmer and longer days bring, with half looking forward to spending more time outdoors.
