Recently a sociologist at U-C Berkeley partnered with Hampton Hotels for a survey on when people are happiest, and when they're most stressed out.
Not surprisingly, Mondays are stressful; weekends make people happy.
Here's a tip to help ease your worry: before that dreaded Monday morning arrives, make a list of things to do and decide when you'll do them.
Often times you don't even have to get all those things done, just telling your brain you're going to do it reduces anxiety.
The study also found we're happiest when we take multiple mini-vacations, like 3-day weekends, rather than fewer extended holidays.
Don't forget about mini breaks throughout the work day. Experts say even a few minutes of walking or deep breaths of fresh air can do wonders.
The survey also revealed the number one guilty pleasure weekend activity is simply doing nothing at all....not a bad way to spend a weekend.
