Some like to pick up the Sunday as the best day of the week. Some others again consider Saturday as the choicest day of the week, since it gives the time and opportunity to enjoy to the fullest. But on one thing, all the guys agree wholeheartedly- it is the Monday every week that is the worst! It is time to get back to work, carry forward all the worries and build up the stress of the last week! Monday Motivation is thus the most difficult hurdle of the week.
Why to get over the Monday blues?
It is not at all a good idea to go into the Monday every week with a negative approach. It has many bad effects, one of which is that you start off the week in a bad shape. This continues for at least the first half of the week and hampers your productivity largely for sure. Not only your employer but also yourself would not like to get hampered in productivity.
The other way it affects us is that it spoils the Sunday evening too! Thinking of Monday, we often have a rough time on Sunday evenings thereby spoiling our mood and the enjoyment of the family as well. This negative feeling sustains in the mind for long and makes an individual a bit rough and insensitive!
How to manage our Mondays
Well, so the question remains as to how good can we manage our Mondays. The answer lies in the fact that a proper start to plan the Monday can help us have the correct and positive frame of mind!
To start with, just take an hour’s time out on Sunday afternoon and prepare for the Monday. It can be a mental preparation as to what tasks we will schedule at what time on Monday in office and for family, or a preparation where we gather the files, papers and hard disk folders properly in place so that we are ready to take off on Monday morning without a delay or push. It can also be like taking out the shirt, trousers and tie for the Monday office. In whatever way it is done, this little bit of preparation ahead can give us the boost on Monday morning.
Have the right food
We must always rely on a healthy diet but on weekends the schedule gets disturbed largely. But to have a good Monday or to feel nice on the morning, a little cautiousness on Sunday nights helps a lot. Start having great deal of water from Sunday evening to keep the system flushed and the body and mind cool. Rely upon fruit juices rather than aerated drinks or alcohol on Sunday nights.
Start off the Monday with a good bit of breakfast- avoid bread and butter, go for corn or oats along with lukewarm milk. This followed by a fruit, fruit juice or lemon water can rejuvenate your body and energise it up so that you hardly feel lack of Monday Motivation! Add to that a bit of meditation or light workout in the morning and head start to your busy week in a positive frame of mind!
