If you have that Monday morning feeling, it’s avoidable and life doesn’t have to be like that.

I know we often have to do jobs and chores that are not exactly our first choice, and this can lead to resentment and resistance, but if you open a ‘wellbeing’ section in your diary those feelings can diminish. We all need a little space each week to think and dream, and doing things we enjoy – especially things that we do for ourselves – help to create space. You can’t plan if you can’t think straight, and you can’t think straight if there is so much stuff crowding in on you that your time and your thoughts are not your own.

If your job is making you feel down on a Monday and long for Friday, perhaps you need to take a cool and deliberate look at yourself and re-evaluate things. Complaining, even inwardly, only makes it worse. Listen to your intuition and decide what is really important to you. Try making lists, talking it through with someone who’ll listen, defining your ambitions and your purpose… This is not a one-stop exercise, neither should it lead to prolonged deliberation. Make a habit of it, but not for too long.

Maybe that Monday morning feeling is a signal to change or maybe its just a passing thing. For some people, it seems, moaning is what it is about. If they couldn’t do that they wouldn’t know what to do.

It’s Monday, have a great day.
