Four Ways to Make Mondays Suck Less
If you're like most people, Monday is your least favorite day of the week. But according to Forbes magazine, it doesn't have to be. Here are some ways to make your Mondays more tolerable.
#1.) Dress Up. You probably can't do anything about what you've got on today. But wearing your best outfit makes you more confident. And just looking like you're ready for work tends to make you feel more ready for work.
#2.) Do Something Nice for Someone. Or do something nice for the whole office, like bringing donuts to work. Research has shown one of the best ways to improve your mood is to make someone ELSE happy. Everyone at Big Frog 104 LOVES donuts. Just something to keep in mind :)
#3.) Prepare for Monday on Friday. If there's something at work you dread doing on Mondays, get a head start on Friday if you can. That way you'll lighten your workload. And you'll be able to relax all weekend, because you'll know you have an easier Monday than usual ahead of you.
#4.) Make a List of Things You're Excited for This Week. It doesn't even have to be work-related. Write down three things you're looking forward to like your favorite TV show, having drinks with friends or getting your advance sale tickets to FrogFest. That way, you'll remind yourself of some GOOD stuff that's coming up, and you won't just concentrate on how awful Mondays are. In fact, some people suggest ALWAYS making plans for Monday night. Because then you'll start thinking of Mondays as a 'special day, not just the beginning of the workweek.
