There are many reasons for having the Monday morning blues. Even if you are an entrepreneur love your work it is possible to not feel enthusiastic about Monday morning. The blues do not necessarily relate only to disliking your job/company, a stressful work environment or difficult interpersonal relationships at work. Sometimes you simply are working too much, the hours are too long, or you have not made the most of the weekends for re-charging your battery. Lately I have also been hearing more about 'boreout' rather than 'burning out'. People are simply getting fed up with the quality of life at work - or lack of it and getting bored with it!
Here are some thoughts to help when the blues set in:
If the blues already start on Sunday evening, ask yourself the following questions:
Make Monday morning as pleasant as possible:
Personally I find this step most helpful in the times when I am feeling a bit tired, or have been traveling for work too much.
Let nature offer some of its energy - This is another personal favorite.
On your way to work, draw some inspiration from nature, which contains so much energy and has so much to offer. Make sure to “stop and smell the roses” – if only by looking out of the window. It is possible to find nature everywhere.
Take Monday off if possible or schedule a home office day.
If you are self-employed or have a flexible schedule at your workplace, consider taking Monday off to do everything but work. Plan a day that has no plan. Do whatever you feel like doing whenever you feel like doing it.
Finding a new, improved frame of mind helps you get rid of the Monday morning blues. The choice is yours.
