Happiest Day of the Workweek

Which Workday Makes You Happiest?

Oh happy day! Researchers from the Northeastern University College of Computer and Information Sciences and from Harvard Medical School have been analyzing tweets to gauge when we're feeling our best and worst — and it turns out folks are happiest on Sunday and gloomiest on Thursday. I don't think it's fair to compare the carefree weekend to the workweek, so I want to know which day of the grind makes you most glad. Friday may seem like an easy winner, but it's one of my busiest days (and not my favorite) so I'm leaving it in. Tell me: What day do you enjoy the most and why?

Mondays are just terrible because its the end to some weekends I never want to end. Thursdays and Fridays are terrible because all I can think about is getting out of there. So Tuesdays and Wednesdays when I'm not mad because the weekend is over and not overly anxious for the weekend is when I can focus my best and just be ok.

Mondays are awful--not just because it's back to work, but it's also my longest work day because we have meetings at the end of the day every Monday. Frirdays are my favorite because I can dress down and I'm only a few hours away from the weekend.

I like Thursdays the best. Fridays always seem so hectic but Thursdays still have the promise of a good weekend coming up.

I actually hate Fridays because they are always insanely hectic and extremely unpredictable. I like Sundays the best because it's slow and I have different jobs to do than I do during the week.

I work Sun/Tues/Thurs, but Sunday is actually my favorite of the three. Too bad it wasn't an option!

Monday's are best for me. Of course I'm not thrilled about going back, but the day typically goes fast since I had a couple days off. I like Friday's b/c it means the weekend is coming, and Friday's are also more quiet (less employees working), but they always go by so slow.

I actually love Mondays! I am well-rested from the weekend, typically don't have to be anywhere after work, can take my time at the gym and cook myself a healthy and yummy dinner. The rest of the week is so hectic and over scheduled. Mondays are awesome!

Thursdays for me - I know that the next day is Friday, the beginning of my weekend. However, once Friday actually rolls around, for me the day just seems to slooooow doooown and for my husband, everything always goes wrong right before the weekend!

It depends on the week.

(I should also mention that I often work 7 days a week anyway...)

I'm happiest on Thursday because there's the anticipation of Friday. Once Friday's here, it's all down hill to Monday again.

I love Tuesdays... I think after the "back to work" mode of Mondays, Tuesday is more relaxed. I already know what the week will bring and I'm not scrambling to do anything (usually). Plus, I always enjoy Tuesday evenings. Always have, I really have no idea why... I feel like I get so much done, and I generally work out for 90mins as opposed to 60mins. Fridays are the SLOWEST days ever. I'm not a fan.

I think I hate Friday the most... because it goes by so slowly, especially at like 4pm... it feels like 5pm will never come and I will never be set free. Hehe.

whatever day is the one right before I am on vacation/weekend - often I take off thursdays and fridays in the summer, so in that case, wednesday or thursday could be my favorite days! but i voted friday, as it's most likely to be the day before i'm off!
