Work Emotions of Monday Work Fear Syndrome

Speaking of work Emotions, Monday is probably the day with the most obvious mood changes!

I also write this article with sadness and anger, and the sound of typing on the keyboard is much louder than usual. I’m probably not the only one with work emotion.

There was once a vacation I didn’t cherish, I didn’t sleep well, I didn’t eat well, I didn’t have fun, and there were a dozen other vacation plans I hadn’t even begun to implement.

I was thinking about it day and night. Emptiness, fear and anxiety overwhelmed me and it was hard to sleep for a long time…

Hey, I have to go to work again tomorrow.

Rejoice on Saturday, sigh on Sunday.

You read it right, it’s not that the house collapsed or the fund dropped again, it’s that it’s time to go to work. Who in Nantou is not in a work emotion?

The daily life of contemporary workers is spent in looking forward to the end of the day, looking forward to the day off, looking forward to vacation.

From Monday to Sunday, the happiest day of the week for a laborer is Friday, because tomorrow is a day off! The most painful part of the week is the weekend, because tomorrow you have to go to work again.

Every weekend night, there are always countless workers can not sleep at night, with dark circles under their eyes in the fight against sleepy insects, I can not sleep, help me up I can still stay up!

Every Monday morning, there are still countless hit workers in the psychological construction of themselves.

“No, no, no, no leave, leave one day deduction full attendance 300, deduction personal leave 280, this month has been late 2 times, today again late to be fined 50, for love and peace, for the company’s backstreet Starbucks, I’m going to go to work, get up quickly get up quickly get up!”

Expectation → revelry → emptiness → anxiety is the true portrayal of the mood of the double break.

“Monday phobia”


Fear of going to work on Monday is widespread and is not an emotion unique to the individual.

Monday phobia refers to a psychological state of fatigue and fear of work because of excessive work pressure leading to boredom.

It is also based on excessive relaxation during vacations, inverting the biological clock, and thus presenting mental instability, anxiety and nervousness when facing work.

According to a survey conducted by the International Recruitment Platform, working people in the United States and the United Kingdom will also be anxious about the upcoming workday, and 80% of them will start to varying degrees of frustration, loss, fatigue, and insomnia from 3:00 p.m. on weekends.

The main reason for the “Monday Fear” is that the “study + work” mode on weekdays and the “pure entertainment” mode on weekends do not connect well.

Excessive relaxation on the day off completely disrupts the work-life balance of the weekday, and so the work model has to be rebuilt and re-adapted every Monday.

Boring work, endless projects and over-indulgent holidays are all catalysts for “Monday Phobia”.


Monday phobia or school phobia

Monday phobia is also a form of avoidance psychology, which is the psychological burden of some unfinished matters, responsibilities or consequences.

It is like the phobia of the beginning of the school year during the study period, in addition to the freedom to sleep late and wake up late for the vacation life to stay in love, but more is the homework is not written, the beginning of the remedial exams of the students on the imminent possibility of being publicly criticized by the teacher’s fear of anxiety.

Therefore, generally good students and the big devil will not be anxious because of the beginning of the school year, because one “no burden”, one does not take the homework and teacher criticism as a “burden”.

People with “Monday phobia” are more likely to work less well, and are usually difficult or troublesome, with trips.
