Mondays are the worse day of the week for me. I’m so anxious about them that I begin to feel nervous on Sunday evenings. I even have a hard time falling asleep on Sunday nights. I feel irritated about having to leave the sanctuary of my home and to go back out into the real world. On the weekends, I retreat from work and school (if possible) and I relax. I’m able to recharge my energy levels and I start to feel normal again. Then Monday comes and I’m forced to deal with all the stress of life all over again.
Another aspect of Mondays that I dislike is how all of my co-workers try to outdo each other with their stories of what they did over the weekend. If one person brags about how much they partied and how much they drank, then another person comes along and has to tell an even more exaggerated story about their weekend. It’s ridiculous and a waste of time and energy to listen to these stories. I try to avoid getting pulled into these conversations by telling my co-workers that I have a lot to do.
Mondays are probably the days that I do the least amount of work. I feel low on Mondays and I lack motivation. It’s as if my body and my mind are at war with the reality that another week has started. I wish there was a way that I could relax my mind so I wouldn’t feel so poorly on Monday mornings.
