There are many, very real reasons why people hate Monday including; 

  1. Return to work after 2 days of “freedom” – The change between 2 different lives
  2. Comparison with the previous day
  3. Can mean an early start with no lie in
  4. Symbolises another week of hard work
  5. Job dissatisfaction – If you don’t like your job Monday is the furthest away from a break from it 
  6. Relationships at work – Monday can potentially mean dealing with people you may not want to see or speak with 
  7. Particularly difficult task or meeting in the week ahead 
  8. Not being prepared for Monday morning and feeling overwhelmed
  9. Hating Mondays is a “thing.” Some people just fall in line with the general consensus
  10. Social media – People on social media will often share negative pictures or thoughts about Monday. This can also affect our thinking
  11. Looming deadlines
  12. Work hours can seem to go on forever
  13. Tired after a busy weekend
  14. Work has to start and there is no excuse or way around it
  15. You may feel worse about yourself after what you’ve done at the weekend (over drinking or eating etc)
