Every day, Monday to Friday, I sit on a tube going down to the Square Mile. I sit and look around the carriage to see all of the usual faces.

Urgh – Mondays! Even the word feels us with dread. Mondays are known the world over as being depressing, tiring, busy, and all too far away from the next weekend. Indeed, many people dread Mondays so much, that they feel anxious about it on a Sunday night. This is known as the ‘Monday blues’ and causes a lot of people anxiety and feelings of sadness.
