It’s a universally recognized fact that Mondays suck. What’s worse than hauling yourself out of bed and mourning the death of the weekend? Only to then make the long commute to work where you sit in an office all day wishing it was still Sunday, and praying that Friday would come quickly.
Suffice to say, there aren’t plenty of positive facts about Mondays, but there are a few, and here’s 22 of them!
Monday is the best day to buy a new car. Studies have shown that some people will avoid buying a car on a weekend, as these are the busiest days for car salespeople. This means people will buy cars on Mondays as they’re often guaranteed to get more of the salesperson’s time and attention, and thus a better deal.
Researchers have found that being away from a work-related social group for a weekend makes us feel like we need to secure our place in our social work environment. The same researchers also say that because of this, Monday morning gossiping at work is an important aspect of helping us get through the day.
