Everybody hates Blue Monday - the gloomiest day of the year according to research. Well, let's cheer things up with the chance to win a Monster Superstar Hotshot: one of the best bluetooth speakers I've ever tested. To enter, just subscribe to New Rising Media's mailing list.
Did you know the theory of Blue Monday was researched by Dr. Cliff Arnall, formerly of Cardiff University, in 2005?
With the use of a relatively light-hearted formula, taking into account certain factors like debt, weather and the time since Christmas, he concluded that the third Monday of January was the time when the depression hit its peak.
Now I know the whole *run a competition on Blue Monday* shenanigans are really over-played by companies across the planet. But bear with me, this one has relevance.
Less depressed studies show that music helps make you feel happier, work through your problems, reduce your blood pressure and even numb your body to pain. It's crazy to think something so simply experiential as music can do that to you.
So with that in mind, it's only common sense to offer you all the chance to win one of the best Bluetooth portable speakers I've ever tested. My own Superstar Hotshot (picked up at CES 2017) has helped me through tough times - even more recently as my job was made redundant and I circle the drain, thinking desperately about what the next step of my plan is.
The competition will run for the entire week, with a winner selected and contacted on Monday. Good luck! I can only run this giveaway to UK entrants.
