Where does Blue Monday come from, and what is the evidence? Why do we often have new year's resolutions, which goals are most typical, and when are these resolutions most likely to succeed? How do these resolutions connect to our happiness, and what is happiness? What can we do to influence happiness? How is happiness connected to burn-out? And what is the role of the tyranny of perfection in happiness and burn-out?
