Why Are Many People Anxious About Monday?

Suara.com – When the holiday alias weekend is over, it turns out that there is a sense of anxiety faced by someone when facing Monday. In fact, Monday is described as the day the start of activities such as work.

However, why would someone feel anxious when facing Monday? Answering these questions, Clinical Psychologist and Co-Founder of Ohana Space, Veronica Adesla, shared the answers.

“There are different meanings towards weekdays and weekends for individuals. And this affects the shift in emotions he feels, especially when changing or transitioning from weekdays to weekends and vice versa,” he said when contacted by Suara.com, Sunday (11/14/2021).

When individuals feel free on weekends, the freedom they experience is spending more time with family, resting, or hanging out with close friends. In essence, the weekend is described as a fun time outside of work.

“The transition from the emotions felt during the weekend, having to deal with routines and work responsibilities. With the various challenges that exist, this is what triggers uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, laziness, and lack of enthusiasm, “said Veronica.

In addition, Veronica said there was a change in the rhythm of time felt by individuals during the weekend. And this is like bedtime and wake-up time, which is said to affect the body clock at the beginning of the weekdays or on Mondays.

“Maybe on weekends, individuals think they want to repay the lack of sleep on weekdays, so they choose to get more sleep,” he continued.

“However, although an individual’s sleep time is quite sufficient on the weekend, this can occur when on Monday, as the body does not want to wake up, and wants to sleep longer,” he concluded.
