Let’s Avoid the Monday Blues

On Sunday nights, most people sit at home anticipating the up and coming Monday morning.

I was thinking about this thought last night as I sat at home wishing tomorrow wasn’t Monday. Why is Monday a day no one looks forward too? I know, obvious question. It is the first day of the work week. You’ve been gone all weekend so probably have several phone calls to return and a list of tasks that need to be done. You have the rest of the week before the weekend comes around again.
But, maybe if we changed our attitude about Monday’s that would make things better.
It comes around once a week, so it is not something we can escape.

Here are some ideas to help solve the Monday blues:

  • Make a lunch date on Monday so you have something to look forward to.
  • Make Monday’s casual dress day and allow jean to be worn.
  • Do something fun in the office on Monday’s: bring in food, etc.
  • Have something to look forward to after work: dinner with friends, family game night, or just relaxing at home watching your favorite TV show.
We can’t avoid Monday, but we can avoid the blues. They come around once a week, so we might as well find a way to deal with them instead of sitting at home every Sunday night anticipating Monday morning.
