"The fear is for Sunday morning, not Sunday night” Chris Paye on dreading Monday morning

If you dread starting your work week, it might be time for a change.


For the vast majority of us, Monday morning is our least favourite part of the week.

If the reason for that is because your weekend is over, that's totally understandable. If it's more down to the fact that you're dreading the moment you start work, it might be time for a change.

Chris Paye, General Manager of Jobs.ie, was joined by Aislinn Mahon, General Manager of HuckleTree on the latest episode of The Workshop. They were talking to host Carl Kinsella about the signs you should look out for to know when it's time to look elsewhere.

"If you're not excited, maybe, about the vision of the company you're working for," Aislinn said.


"It's really unrealistic to think you're going to hop out of bed every morning and just go in and be like; 'Yes! Gonna take this day, so excited.' There's a difference between that and dreading going into work," she added.

The Fear

Unless you've never had a bad hangover, "The Fear," is something that many of us have experienced. That should come as a result of overdoing it the night before, not from a feeling of dread about your job.


"I think The Fear is for after Saturday night, it's not for before Monday morning," Chris said.

No matter how long you've been with a company, you shouldn't be stressing over the thought of clocking in.

"I've been with the same company since I left college. It's 12 years now, and I still love what I do and I think that's important," he said.

Unlike a hangover, time isn't the best healer for when you dread going into work. The only way to make things better is to find out what's out there and do something about it. Head to Jobs.ie to see the latest opportunities for someone with your skills and experience.
