Yesterday and today were not easy for me. Nothing major, but plenty of various annoyances occurred in the last two days. Normally, I am excited for the weekend on Thursday night, but this time around I did not feel the weekend vibe until I actually left work on Friday.
While it might not have registered as the weekend eve to me, subconsciously, I must have known. Why? Because it was easier for me to let go of things today. Every little thing that happened shook my foundation, but only for a brief moment. I found myself saying: “It’s the weekend. Why do you care? Just chill.” At least that was what my subconscious was telling me.
It was pretty interesting to see how things just did not matter to me as much as they would earlier in the week. That got me thinking.
Do you get more stressed out on Monday, or on Friday?
To me, the annoyances are magnified on Monday, because that just shows what is up ahead (negative things). And on Friday, I seem to be able to handle things more easily, because I know the weekend is coming, and there will be less opportunities for annoyances.
Of course, this does not only apply to work/ work week. It also applies to when you are going on vacation.
Do you shrug things of easily, because you know you will be relaxing/ doing enjoyable things soon enough?
And it is like that with anything else in life – the more you have piled on your plate, the more you stress. The more annoyed you get. It is easier for you to get overwhelmed. Whereas the same thing would not be as destructive when you do not have much else going on.
I am not sure if this makes sense to you. I sure hope it does. Think about it. To me, this realization enables me to be more conscious of the time and place of annoyances. I will try and treat it individually, without thinking of what it means for the time to come.
