A Monday Pick Me Up…

Everyone knows Mondays are hard so here is a laugh to get your day started! This is a compilation of all the best fails from February. ENJOY!

 

Is there reasoning behind why Mondays are so hard, so hated, and so horrible?

Surprisingly there is…here are the facts on why Mondays absolutely are the worst.

3 Scientific reasons why everyone hates mondays:

  1. YOU DON’T LIKE YOUR JOB- According to a massive Gallup poll, 70 percent of people hate or, at best, are “completely disengaged” from their job. This contributes to what psychiatrists and career coaches call the “Monday Blues.” Feelings of depression and anxiety can start on Sunday night, leading to an unproductive Monday. That might be why 37 percent of job applications are submitted on Tuesdays, more than any other day; you have another terrible Monday at a job you hate, and you’re ready to get out of there.
  2. YOU ARE LESS HEALTHY- But you don’t just feel less healthy on a Monday, you actually are less healthy. Scientists have found that even people who generally maintain their weight weigh the most at the beginning of the week. Mondays are also the most common day for people to suffer heart attacks and strokes. Even if you don’t end up in the hospital, your blood pressure is higher on Monday, as is your chance of getting sick in general.
  3. YOU FEEL WORSE ABOUT YOURSELF- Your average weekend might involve eating, drinking, or smoking more than normal. And all of these things take a toll on you physically, which may be why one study found that American women of all ages and locations feel least attractive on Mondays. People also see Mondays as the best day to change something about themselves. You are more likely to consider (or actually start) a diet on the first day of the week, as well as quit smoking. While these are positive changes, they aren’t fun to actually do, and they come from a place of feeling bad about yourself and your health, which contributes to that blah Monday feeling.
