My weekend was pretty solid. The weather was perfect, and I got to catch up with some friends that I hadn’t seen in a while. But late Sunday afternoon, I got in a little bit of a rut. I wasn’t exactly looking forward to Monday and the upcoming week. I don’t even know why. There wasn’t anything that I was dreading.
It’s not uncommon for people to have a bad case of the Mondays. Your sleep schedule and diet are off. There’s also an emotional shift going from the weekend to the new workweek. Weekends are fun and filled with activities that we enjoy doing. Monday, however, represents going back to work and having to do the stuff that we don’t always want to do. Considering that 70 percent of people hate or are “completely disengaged” from their job, this only makes Mondays even worse.
A study shows that stock market returns are lower, and suicide rates are higher on this particular day of the week. No wonder our feelings can confirm that data — that Monday is the least happy day of the week.
