Research shows that you can find relief from the Zeigarnik effect by simply planning to finish your tasks.
What you can do:
Planning ahead and filling our calendars with various social activities that are supposedly for fun, leisure, and pleasure can make them seem like a chore. Simple, relaxing activities turn into work if we plan and schedule them like an obligation, as it will take the same type of effort as making a report or attending a business meeting.
Being impromptu and spontaneous in one’s leisure activities is what makes them enjoyable.
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.
