Almost everyone who has to go to work or school (or both) has that moment, on Sunday, when they realize that their beautiful and leisurely time is coming to an end and they are about to start yet another week. It seems that most people who have to go to work during the week are just tolerating the week days just so that they can get to the weekend and enjoy their freedom away from work.
Not everyone has a miserable job that they dread going to every Monday; some people look forward to the beginning of the week because it gives them the opportunity to start over and do something great. Even for those who take a positive approach to Monday, there are times when they just feel blue for no other reason than that it is Monday. Here are a few ideas for getting past the Monday blues:
1. Wear your best clothes or the cheeriest color from your wardrobe. You’d be surprise how much your clothes could affect the way you feel about yourself.
2. Early start – bad things happen when you are late, the tension level is high, you are in a rush, you don’t have time for breakfast, when you arrive at your office, people are shoving work into your face. It may seem like a punishment to wake up earlier on Monday but trust me, when you have enough time to organize yourself, you’ll feel like you can conquer the day easier.
3. Have everything laid out the day before – your clothes, files, etc. Saves you a couple of minutes in the morning so that you can concentrate on other, more important things.
4. Plan something special for Monday night – meet a friend for dinner, rent a DVD. The day will be easier when you have something to look forward to.
