Feeling tired, hopeless, pessimistic, unenergetic or depressed on a Monday morning at work isn’t just another passing thing. It is a sign that something is wrong at work and especially if it happens more often than normal, it tells you something should be done. This could mean you are probably not happy or you may be feeling under-appreciated or unsatisfied. This is all that we describe as “Monday blues” and here is how to handle it
- Identify the problem.
First thing is to identify the problem. Get to know where the problem lies. This way you can now easily manage it.
- Prepare for Monday on Friday.
Leave some tasks on Friday for you to begin with on Monday morning so you can start by focusing on something first thing in the morning.
- Unplug for the weekend.
Avoid checking mails or checking work during the weekend especially if you are not going to respond to them. Yes, it can be tempting to want to know what awaits after the big weekend but defining a clear boundary between work and personal time can help keep things in check
- Get enough sleep and wake up early.
During Sunday evenings, prepare for the next day and go to bed early, get enough sleep. this helps you wake up feeling well rested and ready to conquer the day.
- Be positive. Start the week out with an “attitude of gratitude,”. Take time to recognize and appreciate the things that you enjoy about work.
