We Don’t Hate Mondays!


Apparently we are a nation of miseries on a Monday morning.  According to a recent survey by Mind, the mental health charity, for many office workers the start of the Monday morning blues begins on a Sunday.  Apparently 66% of UK workers experience a slump in mood as the weekend draws to a close.  Mind describes these workers as suffering from the Sunday Blues.

Finding Monday as the most stressful day of the week and hating their job were the two main reasons why workers dread the start of the working week.  The survey also revealed some more surprising statistics associated with Sunday Blues.  Despite commanding the highest salaries across the UK, Londoners were most likely to dread the return to work with more of than half of them admitting to hating Mondays.  And some Londoners do more than just dread Mondays, they will actively avoid it with 22% admitting that they’ve made an excuse to get out of going to work at least once in the last 12 months.  One in ten of these even admit to doing this repeatedly, missing Monday in the office between 3-5 times in the last year.

Workers aged 25-34 are the most likely to avoid Mondays with more than a quarter throwing a sickie to get out of going to work.  For 1 in 3 of those surveyed it isn’t work that presents the problem its actually the office itself and this group have asked to work from home on a Monday purely to avoid facing the office environment.

Here at Ransom Wood we love Mondays as we love every other day in this great woodland environment where we have our office.  Away from the hustle and bustle of the city and nestled in 70 acres of lush greenery what better location to work in.  Great views for when we need a moment to contemplate, large open spaces for a breath of air when we need to clear our minds and a fab little on-site eaterie for when we need refreshments.  Just three great reasons to base your business here in Ransom Wood.

    This is such a beautiful setting for an office. Lovely & peaceful and the Ransomwood team are excellent! The maintenance team are always around if needed, great internet facilities and a fabulous café onsite too. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for premises in the area.

    Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
