Are ‘Blue Mondays’ a Myth? [POLL]
I’ve always thought Mondays were a bit of a down day compared to the rest of the work week. I get that from looking at my co-workers as well. There seems to be that vacant look in their eyes.
According to a new study, their mood on Monday is no different than it is on many other weekdays.
Do you feel blue on Monday?
To find out if so-called ‘Blue Mondays’ actually exist, three psychologists examined Gallup data in which 340,000 Americans were asked to describe their mood on various days of the week, choosing from words like enjoyment, happiness, worry and sadness.
Turns out that while moods did improve on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, moods on Monday were no different than those reported on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday — and that held true between both men and women.
