A Stressed Meme Everyone Can Relate To

Here at Joycheiver, we take stress and the negative effects it has on people’s lives very seriously.

So instead of making this blog full of advice or actionables, we are giving you some of the best medicine: Laughter, and the feeling that someone else out there knows what you’re going through. These two things epitomized the positive attributes of the 21st century birth and rise of “meme culture.”

Studies show that employees are generally the most stressed they’ve ever been right now. So let’s take a journey down meme lane and poke some fun at workplace stress instead.

Funny Memes About Work

Oh man, everyone’s been here at one point or another. Sending the perfectly-crafted email, only to realize too late that you completely forgot to attach the thing that is the whole reason you’ve sent the email in the first place.

The Stress Meme That Everyone can Relate to (at Some Point in Time)

Closely following the email fail comes a moment that you can consider yourself lucky if you haven’t experienced. This shared moment transcends industries and seniority level:

Meetings and questions are important, sure, but Friday after work is sacred.

Stressed, Overwhelmed Meme

A good, hard week of work can really feel like a week-long ultra-marathon. But if you feel a little too dead inside after five days of working, you could be suffering from burn out.

Relating To a Stressed Meme a Little Too Much?
