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 a great deal of
positive facts about Mondays, but there are a
few, and here’s 22 of them!

1. 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.

2. Another positive fact about Mondays is that it
is statistically the most likely day that the U.S.
Stock Market will rise, rather than fall.

3. But it’s not all happiness on Mondays – a
study conducted by Marmite in 2011 showed
that the average U.K. person won’t crack a
smile until 11:16 A.M.

4. It has also been found that the productivity of
workers is at its all-time low on Mondays. With
people being up to 30% less productive on a
Monday, it it shown they often only manage
3.5 hours of work throughout the day.

5. Monday is the day of the week when most
people do their online shopping. I’d hazard a
guess to say that’s a lot of unproductive,
demotivated, bored employees shopping online
at work!

6. The name for Monday comes from the Old
English word “Mōnandæg,” and the Middle
English “Monenday.” It is originally a
translation of Latin “dies lunae” meaning “day
of the Moon.”

7. In the U.K., “Monday” is a slang term used to
describe a large and heavy sledgehammer.

8. The Boomtown Rats song I Don’t Like Mondays
was inspired by a shooting spree in America by
killer Brenda Spencer. When questioned by the
police about her motivations for the murder
spree she answered ‘I don’t like Mondays.’

9. In 2012 and 2018, there were 53 Mondays in
the year. This occurrence won’t happen again
until 2024.

10. Monday is the only day of the week that is an
anagram for single word, that word being
‘dynamo’.

11. A study in 2011 showed that the average
person moans for 34 minutes on a Monday,
compared to the 22 minutes on other days.

12. Even if you maintain a steady weight, scientists
have found that Monday is the day of the week
when you will weigh the most.

13. On a Monday, almost 50% of employees are
late to work.

14. Professionals over 40 are the biggest
demographic to suffer more stress on a
Monday.

15. Socializing is part of the reason why Mondays
suck so much. 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.

16. A study once revealed the best ways to get
over the “Monday Blues” are by watching TV,
online shopping, buying chocolate , and
planning a holiday.

17. Monday is commonly considered “suicide day,”
being the day of the week where the most
people take their own lives.

18. “Heart attack day” also takes place on
Monday’s when there is a marked 20% increase
of heart attacks.

19. Surprisingly, Mondays are the least rainy day
of the week. Although the exact science behind
this is unknown, researchers believe it is due
to the decrease in man-made pollution over
the weekend.

20. When scientists recorded emotions of people in
each day, they found Monday to be no
different from Tuesday, Wednesday or
Thursday. However, when they asked people to
remember which day was the most stressful
they will always say Monday. This is due to a
larger emotional shift from Sunday to Monday
than there is between Tuesday and Wednesday.

21. Mondays are the most sleep deprived day.
According to scientists, the extra sleep you get
on a weekend makes you worse off on a
Monday, as it throws off your body clock.
When you wake up early on Monday, it’s more
of a shock than waking up any other weekday.

22. You look less attractive on a Monday. Or at
least you think you do. One study showed that
American people of all ages feel at their least
attractive on a Monday.
