Your body’s natural rhythm is messed up on weekends

Your body’s natural rhythm is messed up on weekends

People’s moods are commonly at their lowest on Mondays. The main reason is that we cram as much as possible into a weekend.

Many people are eating and drinking too much, and going to sleep later. Catching up with family and friends requires emotional and logistical energy. By Monday, we are more tired than we want to be, which directly correlates with a low mood.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

People often dislike Mondays if they didn't prepare for the start of the week emotionally and logistically.

Disliking your job or finding it very stressful can cause you to dread Mondays.

Someone who sees their weekend experience as the only source of happiness will feel like Monday is the end of their life.

Mondays involve transitions where you have to face the unknown. You may be anticipating the stressors it may bring, such as anxiety about all the work on your plate, or social anxiety.

Monday follows after two days of freedom and enjoyment. Even busy weekends have plenty of moments to relax.

People who spend almost all of their time working may experience negative feelings on Monday. It is the mind and body telling them to slow down or take a break.
