Practical Tips For Overcoming The Monday Blues
Lanette Pottle From Positivity Nation says; Shift your thinking! At Positivity Nation I always start the week by posting TGIM! (Thank God It's Monday!) and ask people what they are thankful for. When we look at Monday as a bright new beginning to the week...a new week full of opportunity... what's not to be excited about? You have the power to make Monday the new Friday :)
Jan Roberts from Living With Purpose says: "The attitude of gratitude is a great start. I don't get those Monday blues because I am grateful for every day I wake up...many would change position with us!
Furthermore,having goals to strive for in life makes a difference...and not focussing on the negative which often already spoils the latter part of a sunday afternoon."
To take a leaf from Lanette's article,Thank God I'm Alive :-)
Johan Campbell from Motivate.co.za says; "Here's a fun way of looking at it.
Start your week on Wednesday. Then you've only got 3 days to a 2 day break and only 2 days to the start of the new week.
On a more practical note...
The only reason for a "blue Monday" is that you feel resentful about going back to work. So it's not the day, it's what you associate with the day.
What you must do is find the significance of your job.
