According to this article, many people waste their sundays fearing their mondays.
“I never sleep on Sunday night very well because I’m worried about going to work on Monday morning,” said one worrier. “My job is very stressful and you kind of have to gear up for Monday and getting back into that.”
That’s horrible, and I can only imagine what having this experience week after week does to people.
But mostly, I’m worried that the expert quoted in the article advices people to create some calming sunday rituals ie. to watch TV, play games or talk to a friend, but doesn’t say word one about fixing your job or quitting your job. If that’s how you feel on sunday, then it’s obvious that something about your mondays needs to change.
Raise your hand if you’d rather spend your sunday totally energized and looking forward to monday morning, because work is just that much fun. That’s happiness at work right there!
A great big thank you to Tim Raines for telling me about this article.
