What causes that Sunday feeling in me?

Every sunday for me is a stay in bed day and watch Dvds and relax to the max.

I work hard during the week and feel sundays are there for ME! Everyone knows they musnt ask me for too much as I tell them 'no'.

Am I wrong? Sundays just have that 'day off' feeling.

I sometimes feel guilty as if I think about it there are a million chores I could do but can't I have just one day for me?

I think I need at least one day a week on which I can just say no to chores, no to work, no to stress and yes and hello to sunshine, aircon, extra sleep, breakfast in bed and laziness.

What says you? Please agree and don't forget to s&f.

I hate Sundays as I always argue with my wife on this day almost every week. She is agitated, whiney and complaining on Sundays so I am beginning to wonder what it is that makes her do this. She used to be a church goer so perhaps it some kind of separation anxiety. I am glad that you can relax a bit and take it easy as I am sure you must deserve it.

I don't like Sundays, I wanna shoot the whole day down.

Everyone dreads Mondays but Sundays are the worst-it's supposed to a day to relax but it's really the calm before the storm. I've had a few jobs with the option of working Sundays and I always took them if that meant getting Friday off.

Cool. It looks like most people get that easy sunday feeling just not always on a sunday.

To those with that easy sunday feeling today, I salute you!

Sunday is my lazy day too...I stay in my PJ', relax, watch movies ...drink my favorite coffee and snuggle with my favorite comforter on the couch with all my pillows and my furry cat; all happy, cozy and warm. I love looking out the window at the courtyard where there is the beauty of trees, flowers, etc. Sunday for me is about relaxing with happy and content moments mixed in.

I don't worry about Monday...I stay in the moment and just enjoy my lazy Sunday.

I feel exactly the same.
I think it's got lots to do with our modern/western 5 day work week establishment (which most people are 'slaves' to). And how we divide work and play or 'me time'.

This is how I see it, we go on working for The Man for 5 straight days 9 to 5, and finally Friday comes and we are like children, can't wait for the play time after school, so we spend friday night trying to forget the hassle, trying to loosen up and just be ourselves.
Some take to socialising with friends/ drinking/ partying/ clubbing as a solution to that.
Saturday comes and we think well that was fun, what else can I do today/tonight?
Maybe a bit more boozing and who knows some more 'letting go' of stress. Why not?

Then Sunday knocks, and well, all we can feel is Monday looming. So what happens is a lot of us really let go, as in @#¢• it, I'll just do what I please today.

Depending on how you see it:
Like a death row inmate seeing the end is near and just having their last little pleasure.
That leads to people hibernating all day, (it might have something to do with the amount of alcohol ingested previously). Or laying in your comfy warm bed watching movies, or eating that bucket of ice cream, or ordering from the local chinese take away, or what the hell might as well finish that wine/ beer/ whiskey.
Or some take it as a blessing and really get on with stuff they enjoy doing like hobbies.

This post has made me search for sunday proverbs, go figure.
My favorite: He who is not drunk on a Sunday is not worth a greeting on Monday

Last Tuesday or Wednesday I cooked up beef short ribs, roast taters, Yorkshire pudding....

Sunday supper

It really felt like a Sunday.....

Going for a long drive outside any city areas also has an "out for a Sunday drive" kind of feeling.

I love Sundays and feel the same way, I just want to hang out in my jammies, read and browse, and snuggle with my dogs. However, Sunday nights are usually hard as I start to get anxiety about work the next day. I had really stressful jobs the past 5-6 years. I have been in a MUCH better job for about 5 months now, but it still hasn't sunk in all the way yet. I wonder how long it takes for work anxiety to go away when you retire?

If you don't have a family to feed or ferry to soccer games, then by all means make Sunday your "de-compression day." On the other hand, there is the fact that most heart attacks occur on Mondays, as we "gear up" for another work week:

This is written by a doctor, and he suggests "easing" into the new work week with a calm Sunday evening, and to not over-schedule yourself on Mondays.

"Stay in the moment," yes I like that.

Most people in the workforce feel the same way. I did when I worked.

Maybe you could use some of that Sunday laz-about time to structure your priorities for Monday, or maybe the whole week.

That might make you feel more "in control" of the upcoming week, and reduce the stress and feelings of panic Monday morning.
