Sunday ends at 4:13 pm


(Note to Self: Hmmmmmmm.)

Here are some excerpts from a article titled: When the weekend ends: 4:13pm on Sunday is when we get the blues ahead of the working week.

  • Anxiety about the working week ahead officially starts at 4.13pm on a Sunday, according to a poll.
  • Four out of ten adults admit that their Sunday is spent feeling anxious and full of dread.
  • The mild sense of depression  begins half way through the afternoon and continues into the evening.
  • Some 44 per cent of us are jealous of our colleagues’ weekend escapades – not helped by the fact that 75 per cent of us don’t bother to leave the house on Sundays.
  • Sundays should be a day to relax and enjoy the last of the weekend break but the results show that people are instead spending their Sundays thinking about work for the week ahead, so they are the most dreaded day of the week.
  • Forty-six per cent even admit to regularly going through the last day of the weekend without seeing or speaking to anyone else.
  • And nearly half of those polled reckon they would be less likely to get an attack of the blues on a Sunday if the evening was more exciting.
  • A third of adults reckon their ideal Sunday would involve a day trip to somewhere new, while a quarter would like a nice roast dinner in a restaurant followed by a lazy stroll.
  • A fifth of people would love to extend their weekend socialising to a Sunday, making the most of friends, family and the children.
  • Instead, one in six people start dreading Monday morning by lunchtime on a Sunday, and spend the rest of the day miserable and depressed.

  1. Well…that’s awful. And yep, it’s a bit after 4:13 PM. 😦


  2. Wow, I have heard things like this before…how sad. Each day is a blessing no matter what we need to do, work or weekend. If you look for the positive it is there…I promise


  3. Oh how sad. I start checking my week after Sunday dinner. Great post.


  4. I hope your Monday is better than you anticipate..


  5. Fascinating and sad…. I’m with Mimi, David, hope today is a pleasant surprise… 🙂


  6. Oh my … those stats are just so sad. I did go through a time where every morning brought feelings of dread, where weekends were just a short, never long enough reprieve away from a place I hated. Getting out and making change was the one of the BEST things I ever did for myself … and my family. Turns out they like me better now!


  7. Such true observations! You inspire me today, as I travel to an interview for what seems Luke a dream job, to remember what is really important: my husband’s laugh and my children’s giggles.


  8. Have to wonder who they talked to in the polling. Seems to be a lot of anxious people, worrying about what is yet to be.

    Great article. Amazing how things haven’t changed in the past 10 years as I still have a article that talks about the same thing called the “Sunday Night Blues.”
