Why Do We Hate Mondays?

Sneaking Past Monday


Monday morning comes and we tend to drag ourselves out of bed while groaning about how much we hate Mondays and then what do we do?

We immediately start counting down the days until Friday.

We all do it, but why?

Have we forgotten how very lucky we are?

Maybe it is all about our perspective.

Do we think about how many people would give most anything to have work to get up for today?

Have we considered those who didnโ€™t have the joy of waking up this morning at all?

Maybe today we can look at it differently and think about how blessed we are to have this Monday.

I would like to challenge each of you to write a blog post about why you love Mondays. Make sure to stop back here to share the link with others.

I am looking forward to seeing your responses! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just my 2 cents as always.

    I don’t really need to write a blog post. I know why I like Mondays. They’re one of my days off. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s back to the grind stone, that’s why.

    A while ago, I decided to go to dinner every Monday, like most people look forward to going to dinner on a Friday, I changed it to a Monday, that way I have something to look forward to every Monday, try it, it works, happy Monday ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love waking up on Monday! It’s the start of a whole new week, and I always look forward to what the week will bring.

    One of my favorite sayings is “Every day is a gift; that’s why it’s called ‘the present’.” I try not to waste a bit of that precious gift, not even on a Monday!

      Getting sick for a bit gave me a whole new appreciation for every single moment.

    I’ve never had a problem with Mondays! Have never had a Monday-Friday job, as a nurse your work weeks are crazy and we were lucky to have every 3rd weekend off but you had to do 10 day stretch to get it!
    One reason I do like Mondays…hubby is back at work..hehehhe!

    I love Mondays as on Sunday I take about half an hour and reflect on my week. What worked, what were the challenges and if I could do one thing in the upcoming week that would make me feel superb, what would it be. So yeah, I like Mondays. lolol

    I love Mondays (as any other day). It’s another day for me to enjoy like. I put as much fun into Monday as other day.

    Monday is not too bad! Since I remember I don’t like Sundays more than Mondays. First of all very often I suffer from hangover :] and second of all I keep thinking that next day is Monday :(…

  9. Mondays are awesome!

    Mondays are the start of the week, you need to get yourself in shape else you won’t make it to the end of the week :))

    I don’t totally hate Mondays. I only happen to hate it when I know that I am too tired to go to school and got to face a long 5 boring days before weekends.

    And what I like about Mondays is that I get a chance to have a glimpse of my crush after 2 days off. Hehehe
