Monday Blues

Updated on October 22, 2012

It's HERE!

Monday, It is a part of the week which is most difficult to start with especially when life comes to a halt on saturday and sunday. Why is it so difficult to get up and start running after resting for 2 days? We should be more energetic and eager to start the week but, alas that is not the case for most of us.

We find all the negativity in that day. Most of us have an awful Monday. We just want to turn back our clock and want to start all over again. But, nah we can't.

How do we cope up with our Monday Blues?

Infact, Sunday evening the jitters start to creep in. We start getting anxious of the next day and thus, forget to enjoy the Sunday evening with our friends and family. As usual, man is worried more about the future than the present that he forgets to enjoy what is in front of him...a relaxing Sunday evening where he can afford to put up his feet and enjoy but, nah won't do.

A couple of ideas to beat the Monday Blues.

I plan on using them week after week and I hope to get success on one of them. In the mean time, you could try one of those or all of those and let's hope for the best.

1. Get prepped up for Monday by clearing up your desk and write your TO-DO list on Friday evening before you leave for home.

2. Do not check your work related emails until Sunday evening. I am pretty sure that being aware of not checking emails will make me think of work which I have to face on Monday morning. But, am pretty sure it will also give me ideas how to confront the issues related to it. Make notes of those suggestions even if they do not connect.

3. Sleep early on Sunday and get up early on Monday morning. Go for a jog or exercise. That will give the blood a good pumping and help to release endorphins which will help us during the day.

4. Have a hearty breakfast. This food will provide nourishment during the day and help me with the Monday Blues.

5. Make sure my outfit for Monday is the best with bold colors or an attire that I love the most. That feeling of wearing the best will help me uplift my mood when I need it the most.

6. Positive thinking also helps. Thinking of my body as only one and this is the LIFE that I have but, projects coming and going will help me relax during those meetings where I get grilled and baked. No matter what, keep a smile on my face. That will help me keep a composure on my self when the ride is going rough.

Keeping a positive attitude all the time helps, and I am hoping that the day which I always dread off, will also sail off with that attitude.

I also kinda support Monday as being a meat free monday and eating lots of veggies. That gives me lots of energy and keeping my day full of fun and positive happenings (HOPEfully)

Good Luck to those who have Monday Blues and I am pretty sure just as I am trying to overcome it. You will too!!

      Yep - I saw this in the feed too. Still - 22 months later and my feelings for Mondays have not changed! I had to also vote funny - because just last night I was sitting on the sofa with the girls and we were all saying we wished it was still Friday:) lol

      Hello Neeleshkulkarni,

      A pleasure to hear from you.

      I feel that once the car has been pushed; it will pick up it's acceleration and reach it's goal by Friday :)

      The car is the human who need a push at the start and then just goes with the flow.
