‘Monday Blues‘ is a sad feeling or slight depression that we feel when we join the work after a weekend or after a break. We all come across different people who feel low on Mondays and wait again for Fridays to come.
Why Do We Hate Mondays?
It’s hard to come down from the weekend, especially if you’ve had a great one that you wish wouldn’t have ended. People put a lot of burden on the beginning of their week, stop doing that and enjoy your Monday. There’s no reason to hate Mondays.
Mondays are exciting! It means a new week of opportunities, growth, and expansion. How many new people will I meet? What type of realizations and growth will happen for me in my own personal practice?
Follow these simple steps to beat Monday blues and greet the new week like it’s a Friday night.
Don’t skip breakfast
For most people, breakfast is nothing more than a morning meal which you either eat or avoid, but it is so much more. Starting your morning with breakfast will boost your metabolism. So EAT!!!
Pick either Friday or Saturday night to go out, and spend another evening staying home with friends. Find time to relax on weekend.
Hit the Gym – Workout
Working out before work or after not only gives energy but also reduces stress. Exercising gives you the productivity boost you’ve been looking for.
Plan your meal
Nutrition is really important if you want to maintain a high energy level. Plan your meal. Decide what you like the most. Take something delicious on Monday. You can also plan to eat your lunch with coworkers.
Plan ahead Sunday night
Decide your Monday morning outfit. This will eliminate stress and will make Monday’s more tolerable. Also, remember to reset the alarm in order to wake up on time and avoid being late for work.
Set weekly goals
Setting weekly goals help you to guide your week. On Monday, it’s easy to get stuck on taking care of emails that piled up over the weekend and tying up the loose ends of the past week. That’s why it will be best if you plan your week ahead, so you will be guided well with your work.

Take small breaks throughout the day
Always try taking small breaks. Go for a walk and talk with your coworkers. Don’t stay glued all day.
