We have been conditioned from an early age that Friday starts the weekend. Weekends are for freedom.
Work weeks are Monday through Friday. When someone says I have a different work schedule and my Monday is a Thursday, the weirdness of their week seems unnatural to us.
What would happen if we had no boundaries of days? What if we could work and play as we saw fit on days best for us? I know there are some self employed people who have that freedom. They are the lucky ones.
Think about when you do your best work. Think about what free time looks like for you. If you can line up those two times, happiness will follow.
I hear you, easier said than done.
