New Study Says Most People Won’t Smile On Monday Until Almost Noon
According to experts the hatred of Monday mornings is governed by deep-rooted tribal instincts. Workers like to feel part of their tribe again after the weekend and need to chat to each other and spend time in communal areas, according to clinical psychologist Professor Alex Gardner.
Professor Gardner said: “Work could be the best place for you on Monday because we are essentially cavemen in city suits.
“We want to feel part of the tribe so we go for a cup of tea catch up and then settle down to work. Having done the tribal bonding, we are geared up for a productive week while some people who have started all guns blazing on a Monday morning may burn themselves out.”
