When you start to feel that dreaded feeling sinking in on a Sunday afternoon, you might already start thinking about how to cure a case of the Mondays. I love my weekends and to me, there is nothing more happy-sucking than the idea of waking up to the buzz of an alarm clock at the unthinkable time of 6 a.m. Yuck! I despise Monday so much that I start to get down about it on Sunday afternoon, sometimes Sunday morning or Saturday night! However, instead of letting this dreaded day of the week really drag my spirits down, I have thought of a few ways of how to deal with a case of the Mondays.
1. Make a Plan
My first method for how to cure a case of the Mondays is to make a plan. I am a planner by nature, and I find that putting a plan into place really helps me to get a lot done – and even helps me get through that dreaded Monday. How do I plan? I make a list of the things that I have to get done on Monday and have everything set up before the day starts. When I wake up, I have what I need in place and as I go through my day, I cross off the things that I accomplish as I accomplish them. With each item I cross off, I smile and know that Monday evening is just around the corner.
