Do you ever get the feeling of being sad when the weekend has ended? And do you get anxious on the upcoming week where you have to go to work again and then the week fills you with so much to do.  Most middle class workers have only a two-day weekend day off to rest from the long work they have completed in the prior week, but is not enough to fuel up your tired body and mind.

The feeling of Sunday blues or others called it Sunday Night Blues, does not only affect people who worked on a 9-5-day job, but it also triggers people who are at home, especially mothers who take care of their children.

Some people think on a Sunday evening as a stressful time, for going back to school, getting ready for a presentation in the office, or stacking up deliveries in your store. Also, feeling anxious or sad can lead people to struggle to sleep through the night. Because not a lot of people uses Sunday to rest, as this is the time to do their other to-do-list outside from work.

You know the great feeling when it's already Friday and the day finally ends. Wrapping up your work week, turning off your computer and saying goodbye to your gloomy desk and you have a whole 48 hours to have a lot of fun! As the quote says ‘’Thank God it’s FRIDAY!’’.
