No One Likes Mondays

Various studies have documented the Monday Blues, which essentially is an imposition on the working person, a loss of freedom coupled with the arrival of work-related stress. Mondays are psychologically hard because we dread to ‘fall in line’ even if we don’t want to.

The fact that the weekend was great doesn’t help as it usually makes Mondays even more dreadful, something we may just have to accept.

Manage Your Mondays Like A Pro

  • A special Monday treat, casual dress day, or a pizza day for the entire team can be something to look forward to. Even not cooking that day, or a workout class can bring a creative break to the stressful routine.
  • Focusing on your thoughts and feelings helps you absorb the negativity and understand how to steer the mind towards a solution.
  • Less social media surfing during weekends also contributes to your positive mental outlook, as the feeds are mostly negative or provocative.

Mondays: Mental Health

Self-care can be on the front line on Mondays, with meditation, yoga, journaling and hot baths being the norm. Even a special coffee or a short walk in the park for fresh air can liven up your day.

If your mental health is seriously deteriorating at the start of the week, you need to examine your current role and find out how to make your work more meaningful and enjoyable.

Burnout at work can be checked by talking to a career counsellor or a therapist.
