How do you stay productive while working full-time when there may be elements of stress and burning out involved?

What Ive figured out is that in order to stay productive while working full-time I need to have good time-management (productivity) and stress-management skills and be able to do my job with a positive attitude. The productivity I know a lot about, the other 2 Im lacking in ability.
I find that when I work (not working right now, in university) I dont want to do anything when I get home either because I find it too stressfull to be telling myself when I get home 'OK, now the real work begins' and try to do everything on my to-do list, or I just feel burned out from doing some monotonous / miserable job and I feel completely uninspired when I get home.
The positive attitude thing, I unfortunately have a hard time not scowling at work sometimes... lets face it, work sucks. But I recognize that its not an acceptible behaviour.
Do people just wait until the weekend to get things done? In my experience by the time the weekend comes around I want to do absolutely nothing... Hopefully after I graduate I'll be able to get better jobs, but I would like to master the art of working a crappy job just so I know I can thrive in whatever situation I find myself in... thanks!
