TGIF, Right? If we can just make it through the work week and get to Friday, 5 p.m., unscathed, everything will be OK. It’s like sliding into home plate for the win -- the weekend! That’s the way most of us feel these days. It comes as no surprise then that Friday is the day that makes most people feel happiest. There’s even a scientific study that proves it.
Science Daily reports that psychologists from the universities of Lincoln, York, and Hertfordshire teamed up recently to find out what words and emotions people tend to associate with the different days of the week and how our feelings about the days of the week effect our perceptions of time. Mondays mainly prompted negative words like 'boring', 'hectic' and 'tired' and Fridays were associated with positive words like 'party,' 'freedom' and 'release.'
Almost 40 per cent of study participants confused the current day with the preceding or following day - and most of those mistakes occurred during the middle of the week.
Well, there you have it. As far as I’m concerned, any day I’m not having a root canal or standing in line at the DMV is pretty darn good!
