What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you hear the word Monday?
Is the word enough to make you feel depressed?
Or does it make it you anxious?
A lot of us keep talking about those dreaded Monday morning blues, when we just don’t want to get out of bed, and the last thing you want to do is to get to office and face the work that is waiting for you there.
Feeling this is normal, but if this is happening a little too often, or if you also feel like this in the middle of the week, so much so that it starts to interfere with your overall mood and makes it difficult for you to concentrate on anything, or enjoy anything, here are a few things you could try that may help.
Have A Restful Weekend
The start of the week will appear, no matter what you do. So one of the first things you can do is to enjoy the moment and rest through the weekend. Do what helps you to relax, go out with friends or spend a long weekend doing nothing at home. Rejuvenate your senses and help to calm yourself.
Keep Your Work Calls Away

There is nothing that important that can’t wait a day or two, especially when you are rightfully on an off day. Instead of answering every call and mail that is related to work, keep your office group messages on mute and draft a mail response that auto-replies that you will resume work and revert back once you’re back at work.
Get Some Work Done In Advance
Resuming work after a couple of days off work can sometimes lead to a pileup of mails and calls that you absolutely have to get back to. If you are in a line of work where you can do some work in advance and keep some things ready, try and do that through the week, so that there is no pile-up at the start of the week on a Monday.
Mondays will come and go, no matter what you do. But maybe, if you stop looking at it as the dreaded day of the week and plan your time a little bit in advance, you could be able to handle it without the stress and anxiety.
