We hear this every week at our jobs. People have the Monday blues and are looking forward to the weekend, most of all Friday. There isn't an office in the United States of America that doesn't have workers that are dreaming about this very day. What is it about Friday that we love so much? Let's explore why we do and ways to improve things so Friday doesn't have to be that thing everyone dreams about all week long.
The weekend of course
Everyone loves Friday because it starts the weekend. When you get off your shift you have that whole eve

Friday is symbolic of rest; we get to relax and recuperate. Friday means we have the weekend to sleep in, take part in enjoyable activities, and fellowship with friends and rel
Live it up!
Obviously not everyone is capable of doing these suggestions and that's understandable, but it pokes an interesting point of discussion about why we as a society live for Friday and the weekend. Take some time to analyze your schedule and fun tasks and try to mix them up so you enjoy each day of the week for a change instead of just the weekend.
