How to Beat Monday Blues

Do you feel down just before the start of a new work week? We all know the feeling - it's called "Monday blues", which usually creeps up on you when you head to bed on Sunday night.

We often feel that the weekend passes by too fast and start feeling sad merely thinking about the next day. Monday Blues are so prevalent that it has become a cultural phenomenon.

The case of feeling blueish on Mondays has shown many negative impacts on productivity and quality of work. But fret not, we are sharing some tips on how to combat it.

  1. Prepare for Monday on Friday

Monday becomes extra stressful as we might have leftover tasks from the previous week, and it could be strenuous to jump right back at it after a relaxing weekend. Always try to make sure you have cleared most, if not all, of the challenging tasks before the weekend so you will have a smoother start to the week.

  1. List down things that excite you

It is natural for us to only think of the demanding tasks and challenges that lie ahead. Turn it around and list down things that you look forward to over the week. Doing so will make you feel motivated to complete any task and put you in a more positive mood.

  1. Enjoy your weekend

Try not to check your work email during the weekend. It may be tempting to know what is waiting for you but if you are not going to respond until Monday, try not to open it. When work ends on Friday, leave all the work problems, and enjoy your weekend. Sometimes Monday seems frustrating as we allow work to creep its way into it, so it feels as though we did not have a weekend at all.

  1. Keep Monday light

Knowing that you will likely feel Monday blues, schedule your meetings and calls mid-week. Doing this will help you come to work on Monday in a lighter mood. Start the week with a simple and easy work routine to get the engines running and better prepare yourself for the more challenging tasks ahead of the week.

  1. Reward yourself

Monday should not be a day where you aim to get done and over with it. Plan something at the end of the day. It can be as simple as getting a cake from your favourite bakery store or even making dinner plans with your friends. Another way of coping up with Monday blues is going shopping. Buy a new watch or dress or anything that can lift your mood. Having something to look forward to at the end of the day will surely make your Monday easier.

Monday blues can be tough on some of us, especially during the current COVID situation where the lines between work and home are blurred. We hope that the above tips will make your Mondays much more enjoyable. We would love to hear from you guys on your ways of reducing Monday blues!
