The team of British scientists in a survey of residents of Great Britain has concluded that the fifth of January is the most stressful day of the year. Cold weather, the completion of the Christmas and New Year holidays, as well as the economic crisis set the increased irritability of people on this day, said the newspaper The Daily Telegraph.
It will leave people more likely to become irritated by the slightest things.
According to researchers the most common complaints are the sounds of colleagues eating noisily, which annoys nearly a quarter of people.
This is followed by sniffing, an irritant to 26 per cent and talking too loudly on the phone, which was cited by 21 per cent.
"Releasing tension through shouting and screaming is a really beneficial way to expel the negative energies caused by stress.
But rather than bottling up frustrations, experts are urging workers to rant and rave to relieve the tension. Judi James, a psychologist and expert in communications and body language, said: "Releasing tension through shouting and screaming is a really beneficial way to expel the negative energies caused by stress.
"January can be one of the most stressful times of the year between sale shopping and recovering from the excesses of the party season, which can stimulate negative behaviours such as rising tension, stress levels and blood pressure.
"When this threatens to overwhelm you try a short sustained burst of shouting, or alternatively, go somewhere quiet, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to help calm you down."
British scientists are exploring the difficult days of long ago.
In early 2008, they officially announced that the heaviest day of the year is Monday 21 January. "Unbearable" that day is determined by several factors, in particular, bad weather, holidays and the completion of the failure of promises made to ourselves for the new year. American psychologists, for its part, concluded that the most difficult day of the week is Wednesday.
