Young professionals on TikTok loooove corporate lingo, from their 5-9 before their 9-5 all the way to Quiet Quitting. The most recent trend is “bare minimum Monday” which advocates coasting through your Monday at work after a chilled weekend. It’s very similar to Quiet Quitting as it focuses on not working too hard. It’s all about getting by without stressing yourself out. Here’s a rundown of how you can have a bare minimum Monday and where the trend came from.

What does ‘bare minimum Monday’ mean?

Okay, so “bare minimum Monday” is when workers use Monday to only do necessary tasks. The ultimate goal is to reduce the fear of returning to work after the weekend. It’s like the corporate Sunday scaries.
