That’s why Mondays have such a reputation for, well…kind of sucking. Mondays are a rough reminder that your two days of weekend bliss are over and you now have the whole work week ahead of you.
But, what if you didn’t? What if you had a day off in the middle of your week, or you got to come home two hours early every day? Would that motivate you to get up? Would you feel better about the week ahead? Studies say, yes you would. Not only would you feel better, but you’d be even more productive in all your work!
