It is okay to long for the weekend occasionally, like when it is Thursday and the week-long workload has been too much. But if one is dreading Monday on a Sunday evening, the work environment may be toxic.
The best jobs can exhaust us, but if the longing for the weekend is a regular feeling, we may need to find a new job profile that is not diminishing us.
Whatever work we do, we should take a day or two off to restore our mental state and rejuvenate ourselves.
If we find ourselves sick or anxious at the end of a weekend in which we had a blast, the job may be the culprit. If the job requires us to work weekends or always be on call, with the boss hanging a sword on our head, maybe we need to reassess how our job role is affecting our work-life balance, and switch if necessary.
