Welcome to the newest edition of The Why. “Why don’t we like Mondays?” you ask? Good question. (Besides, it might even make your curmudgeonly columnist look clever putting it out on a Monday.)

So why don’t we like Mondays? Whatever the reasons, they are quite common. As the anonymous staff editor of Career Advice for Beyond.com confirms: “’’I hate Mondays’ is a common refrain at most offices. In fact, if you’ve seen the movie Office Space, then you might even accuse your co-workers of ‘having a bad case of the Mondays’.”

Indeed, we obviously hate Mondays because for people who work the traditional Monday-Friday work schedule, because Monday has a history of being the end of the weekend and the start of the work week.   A new study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology officially confirmed that we don’t like Mondays.

Beyond.com noted that in the study “340,000 people were asked how they felt about different days of the week.” They also note that “this was something that we all pretty much knew and that we didn’t need a scientific study to confirm it.”

Nadine Bells, a blogger for Yahoo! Canada, also reported that according to a new study by Marmite– a UK spreadable food—we don’t like Mondays because we get “the Monday blues”. According to the report the study revealed that the average person does not even manage a smile until 11:16 a.m.

Workplaces are not only very cheerful on Monday mornings but business owners don’t like Mondays because it is the least productive work day. The research reveals that Mondays only have 3.5 productive hours in them and half of all workers are “late for work each Monday.”

Finally, Mondays are not very fun days for folks who overdo it on the weekend. A survey by Braun Series 3 reveals that Mondays are therefore the worst day of the week in terms of “getting ready for work” and of course “looking good” in general especially if you have just had an entire weekend of really late nights and hedonistic activity.

Why don’t we like Mondays? Now you know.

You ask the questions.  We provide the answers.
