Why You Dread Sundays

Posted on Updated on

Scientists did a study to determine what the most depressing hour of the week was for Americans.

Can you guess what it was?

Sunday at Noon.


Because that’s when Monday lands on your shoulders.  Sunday afternoon is when the reality of Monday sets in.  The weekend is over. The freedom of a day or two off is done. The break is complete.

And in the shadows, Monday waits. It lurks there as the hours of Sunday tick by, ready for you. It’s not alone either, no, it brought a friend. Who?

The job you don’t love.

And you don’t have to hate your job to dread Sunday. Your boss doesn’t have to be horrible.You might even like your job some days, but the true test is on Sunday.

Is that feeling creeping in?

Maybe it’s not for you, but maybe your spouse is feeling it.  Sometimes I felt like a “Sunday Jerk” because on Saturday I was carefree but on Sunday I could feel Monday weighing on me like a ton of bricks.

Maybe you see something in your spouse that you wish he or she saw too.

I know that feeling because I lived it for years and didn’t understand why. However, after encountering a few “Necessary Endings” professionally, those experiences shifted me from ‘Sunday Dread’ to ‘Sunday PEACE’.

I learned I didn’t have to dread Sunday and I don’t want you to dread it either.

If you resonate with these thoughts, here’s why:  You’ve told yourself a thousand reasons why this Sunday will be different or this year will be the year you write a book, start a business or get in shape.

But the big change is your career.  You invest at least 40+ hours a week, and if you’re dreading going back each week – it’s time for you to discover:

 1.)  What you’re really Passionate about,

2.)  What Talents and Skills you have, and

3.) How those two pieces can come together to bring purpose, excitement and destiny to your life.

I’ve encountered hundreds of people just like you who swear they’ll never regret another Sunday again.  I hope you’ll join them.
